Tombstone Tuesdays - Polly Finlay Crockett

Gravestone of Polly Finlay Crockett, wife of Davy Crockett near Winchester, Franklin Co., Tennessee (see map):

There's been a controversy in the news lately over the possession of an unexecuted marriage license for David Crockett and Margaret Elder issued in 1805. However, this website indicated that Davy Crockett's cousin, also named David, actually did marry Margaret Elder. Davy Crockett and Polly Finlay were married in 1806.

Joan,

Spent the day researching in Winchester, Franklin Co., TN, before we went on our quest for Polly Crockett's grave. It was a very good day. Thanks for the comment.
