I don't know your specific family but I would say your Crotts family most likely belongs to the ancestral line of Adam Crotts (also Kratz, Cratz, Gretz or Gratz) of Davidson County, NC. Some of them migrated to the Savannah TN area and most if not all of the Crotts's in that part of TN are probably related to the Adam Crotts family line.
There is a good deal of information available on computer searches about the Davidson County NC Crotts family. I research the Crotts families of Cleveland, Lincoln and Rutherford Counties, NC. So far I haven't found my link to Adam Crotts but I believe there is one out there somewhere as the names in the families are so similar.
I hope some Crotts families will consider DNA testing sometime to find our true roots. It is generally believed the Crotts of NC were Germans who migrated from PA down to NC in the 1750-60's.
