HI Wendy
My ancestor was named Martha Durdin and she married Elijah Crockett on May 27, 1813 in St Tammany Parish La
they were my gggggrandparents

Martha was a sister to Nancy Ann Durden who married Jesse Whitmire and one of Nancy and Jessie children Elias married my ggggrandfather Andrew David Crockett's sister Letty/Lettie/Letteha Crockett.
Elias and Letty are both buried in Morse Cem in Buna Jasper Co Tx.
We dont know what happened to Martha between her marriage in 1813 until she shows up in Jasper Co Tx in 1841 getting land with her son my ggggrandfather Andrew.
I can tell you that her 2 known daughter Sarah and Letty both got married in Rankin Co Ms in 1836 and 1838.

I dont know much about the Durden side but know lots about the Crocketts and Whitmires.

Do you know for sure that Nancy was born in Morgan Co Ga?
I have been trying to find out where Martha meet Elijah Crockett becuase we know nothing about the famiily of Elijah Crockett or what happened to him.

Debra in Tx
