Although Crockett County was not formed until many years after Davy Crockett's death in 1836 at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, both the county and it's county seat, Alamo, were named in his honor. According to Tennessee, a Guide to the State, he did live for a brief time in what was to become Crockett County. The excerpt from Kelsey's book gives a pre-Disney account of his life. The final part of the booklet contains a brief excerpt from Counties of Tennessee by Austin P. Foster, and a small map of the area.
