      ***** WE HAVE DISCOVERED THAT WE DO NOT KNOW WHO DAVID'S PARENTS ARE AFTER ALL. *****

      DNA
      Participation by descendants of David and Elizabeth in the Crockett Families DNA Project at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Crockett/
      has determined David's Crockett family line is not related to the Joseph Louis Crockett family or to any of the five other distinctive, unrelated Crockett family lines that have been identified by these tests.

      This Project has revealed that many of the Crockett families French and Armstrong connected in their book, "Notable Southern Families - The Crockett Family" actually are NOT related.

      And at this point in time, there is inadequate documentation to prove which of the Crockett DNA project members, IF ANY, descend from Antoine de Crocketagne.

    3. [S82] Wikitree, https://www.werelate.org/wiki/Settlers_of_the_Calfpasture_in_Augusta_County%2C_Virginia.
      Acting under an order of council, John Lewis and James Patton surveyed in 1744 a tract nearly fifteen miles long, but nowhere more than about one and one-eighth miles broad. Their map shows it cross-sectioned into twenty-three lots, the first lying where Goshen now stands and the last rather to the north of Deerfield. With a single exception, every lot had already been taken by some settler. The following tabular statement shows consecutively the number of the lot, the name of the settler, the acreage, the purchase price, when stated in the deed, and the early transfers of title. In those instances where the deed was issued to some other individual than the original settler, the name is given in brackets. The name of a wife is also thus given.

      In 1743, John Lewis and James Patton obtained a grant for 10,500 acres on Calfpasture River in western Augusta County. (Source: "Ulster Scots in Virginia", by Richard McMaster)

      In 1744, an early settlement on 16,500 acres on the Calfpasture granted to James Patton and John Lewis was very closely associated with the James River and Roanoke settlements. The original settlers were Alexander Dunlap, William Jameson, Thomas Gilham, Robert Crockett, David Davis, Thomas Weems, Henry Gray, Francis Donally, Robert Gay, Samuel Hodge, John Miller, Robert Bratton, James Lockridge, John Graham, Robert Gwin, John Preston, William Warwick, James Carlisle, Jacob Clements, John Campbell, James Carter, Loftus Pullen (Pullin), John Wilson, John Kincaid, William Elliott, Jr., William Hamilton, William Gay, Samuel Gay, John Ward.

      In 1750, as listed in the following citation in Chalkley's, early settlers petitioned for a road for eaiser travel:

      4. Robert Crockett, (370 acres?$41.15) ?sold, 1760, by pioneer's sons:?James (Martha) and Robert, Jr. (Janet), both of Mecklenburg County, N. C., to William Thompson for $200?295 acres sold by Thompson, 1767, for $166.67.
