I'm reading the book, "David Crockett," by Michael Wallis, published 2011. In this book it lists Davy's siblings by name and order of birth, but the year of birth is not given for any of them except for David "Davy" Crockett.
Mr. Wallis states that the idenity of the oldest child of John and Rebecca Crockett was proved in July 2008. The oldest child was a daughter, Margaret Catherine Crockett b at Womack's Fort in the northeast corner of what eventually became Tennessee. This information came from the family Bible of Louisa Taylor Lemmons, granddaughter of Margaret Catherine. Margaret Catherine Crockett's story is a sad one (I'll not relate it here), but one that interests me because I research Lemmons in early Washington and Greene Co TN.
Here's the birth order that Mr. Wallis gives:
1. Margaret Catherine
5. James Patterson
6. David "Davey"
8. Elizabeth "Betsy"
