Hi, I have a friend whose gt grandmother, Elizabeth Gray Patton m. Davy Crockett. Patton was in the War and they believed he died. I have the story that a Col. Richard Calloway came and married them. They lived in Weatkley Co. Tn. before going to Tx. There is a stature of her in Tx.
She also had in her family a John Bryant who came into Pa. and he went to someplace that starts with B. near Branson. I am sorry I can't remember the place but it is the lower part of west Mo. near Kansas City? She is also related to a Dr. John Robinson of Cape Gireadeau, Mo. She is looking for him for she can get info the Tn. Pioneers or something like that. She is also in Whittles family of Tn. She also maybe related to Daniel Boone. I am trying to help her. I saw a place where it said Dr. John Robinson was related to a J. Mcnutt Henderson here in Et Tn. in Grainger or Claiborne Cos. I am not sure where. She spells her name as Bryant. Here is a Rebecca Bryant b. 1821 in SC. with John's father, John Mayfield? b. 1823 SC. This is under Eliza Jane Henderson m. John V. Mayfield b. 4 Dec. 1848 d. 28 Mar. 1891 Anderson Co. SC. bur. Beaver Dam Cemetery. ? Seems to be with Samuel Henderson and Elizabeth Williams with David Eaton Henderson? Do you know anything about these people? Loralee
