The Crockett Family

Updated December 22, 2012


"For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." Psalm 91:11

Welcome to my Crockett, Booth and Sonnier family webpage. This is the genealogical research that I have done on both my father's Crockett and Cajun families and my mother's Booth family. It is a work in process. Thanks to the wonderful research of Reverend Donald J. Hebert and Stephen A. White my Cajun ancestors are extremely well documented back to the early 1600's. My Crockett line is equally well documented back to the generation of William Crockett who married Nancy Asher McNary Mast. At this point in time, I am trying to find the parents of William Crockett who was born in NC in 1783. My Mother's line is documented all the way back to Charlemagne, William the Conqueror and many Kings of England (Plantagenet), France, Spain, Scotland and Italy. I am also a direct descendant of Rodrigo Díaz "El Cid" De Vivar. This lineage is through Reverend Edward Foliott of York County, VA.

I started a Crockett DNA Project back in January 2005. This DNA testing has proven my Crockett line is not that of David Crockett the Elder. However, it is interesting to note that my father's DNA belongs to a rare haplogroup where DYS393=12, and are classified Haplogroup R1b1c. There is an ongoing DNA study on Scottish Border Reivers that is researching this rare haplogroup.

Quote from Bennett Greenspan, President of FTDNA, regarding the Scottish Border Reviers DNA project samples where DYS 393 = 12.
"The defining aspect of all these samples is that they have a 12 at DYS 393...very uncommon for R1b, as 90+ % of R1 is found as a 13."

Quotation from Scottish Border Reivers DNA Study:
The questions then become "How did R1b3 (aka subclade M269 and Ht 35), and/or R1b3 (aka subclade M65) or R1b4 (aka subclade M73) come to exist in what may be relatively high proportions along the Anglo-Scottish Border"? Possible vectors include:
1) the 5,500 Sarmatian troops stationed in Cumbria and Lancashire during the Roman period. These troops were armored cavalry, eventually settled in Northwest England, and were presumably assimilated by the native populace. Some scholars have speculated that the King Arthur legend sprang from tales of the Sarmatian cavalrymen and one of their leaders, Lucius Artorius Castus. The Sarmatians - like the Alani, who colonized parts of France and Spain - were an Indo-Iranic or Turkic tribe originally from the Caucasus, and some of their direct descendants still live in the Caucasus under the name Ossetians.
Other possible vectors include:
2) Norman families that were originally of Scandinavian, Burgundian, Alsatian or Visigothic descent, and
3) Norwegian Viking settlement of the areas bordering the Irish Sea.

Quote from Sarmatian DNA study:
"We have attempted to gather all DYS393=12 DNA data, and then have done a preliminary sort, to try to establish whether the data fits the Ht 35 criteria from reviews of the Cinnogli paper, eg.: The modal haplotype in the Cinnioglu data for the R1b members who have the Eastern Ht 35, seems to be: DYS19=14; DYS388=12; DYS390=24; DYS391=11; DYS392=13; and of course DYS393=12.
Discussion with Bennett Greenspan adds the R1b criteria as being {DYS389ii=30 minus DYS389i=14) = 16}; there is probably variation in the foregoing due to mutation, such that any combination of the DYS389 formulation resulting in 16 +/- 1 resulting from the calculation fit the criteria and may be classed as R1b."

Lee's Note: R1b3 is now called R1b1b2.

Stanley T. Crockett's DYS#=Alleles
DYS393=12; DYS390=24; DYS19=14; DYS391=11; DYS385a=11; DYS385b=11; DYS426=12; DYS388=12; DYS439=14; DYS389i=14; DYS392=13; DYS389ii=30.

  • My Magna Charta Surety Ancestors (1 KB)
    Magna Charta (Latin for "Great Charter", literally "Great Paper"), also called Magna Charta Libertatum, is an English charter originally issued in 1215. Magna Charta was the most significant early influence on the extensive historical process that led to the rule of constitutional law today. Magna Charta influenced many common law documents, such as the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights, and is considered one of the most important legal documents in the history of democracy. Magna Charta was originally created because of disagreements between Pope Innocent III, King John and his English barons about the rights of the King. Magna Charta required the king to renounce certain rights, respect certain legal procedures and accept that the will of the king could be bound by law. Many clauses were renewed throughout the Middle Ages, and further during the Tudor and Stuart periods, and the 17th and 18th centuries. By the early 19th century most clauses had been repealed from English law. There are a number of popular misconceptions about Magna Charta, such as that it was the first document to limit the power of an English king by law (it was not the first, and was partly based on the Charter of Liberties); that it in practice limited the power of the king (it mostly did not in the Middle Ages); and that it is a single static document (it is a variety of documents referred to under a common name). My Magna Charta Surety ancestors are on my mother's side of the family and are as follows: Richard de Clare, 4th Earl of Hertford; Gilbert de Clare, 5th Earl of Hertford; Saher de Quincy, Earl of Winchester; Henry de Bohun, Earl of Hereford; Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk; Robert de Vere, Earl of Oxford; Hugh Bigod, later Earl of Norfolk; John de Lacy, Constable of Chester and Baron of Holton; Willelmus Malet, Sheriff of Dorset and Somerset; William de Mowbray, Baron of Axholme; William de Huntingfield, Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk.
  • My Grandfather Jesse Emmet Crockett (132 KB)
    This is my grandfather, Jesse Emmet Crockett, and his sons, William Emmet Crockett, Sr. and Howard Perry Crockett. Jesse Emmet Crockett was a member of the Chartered Institute of American Inventors. His certificate reads "This certifies that Mr. Jesse Crockett has duly qualified for membership in the Chartered Institute of American Inventors, Washington, D.C., through devising one of more meritorious inventions, or by rendering other valuable service in behalf of inventive progress, and has been admitted as a Life member of the said Institute on the day herein below written. June 22, 1936." My grandfather, Jesse Crockett, invented a machine similar to the much later invented Ditch Witch. This was an important machine used in the oil field industry. Jesse also invented many other devices such as a Jack and a Grasshopper which helped improve the quality of productivity in the oil fields. The Jack held the pipes so the men could weld them and the Grasshopper (U.S. Patent # 1,985,152) allowed the men to align the pipes to be welded. Jesse had another patent (U.S. Patent # 1,486,125) for a machine that united pipe sections. The Ditch Witch type machine dug the ditches for the pipes. My grandfather never made any money from his inventions as they were the intellectual property of the oil company he worked for at the time. He should have been a millionaire many times over for his inventions.

  • Crockett's of Virginia Article (13 KB)
    This is an interesting article. However, there is inadequate documentation to prove the descendants of Antoine de Crocketagne or that he even existed. Many people are unaware that the Crockett DNA Project has disproven the claims put forth by French and Armstrong in their book "Notable Southern Families-The Crockett Family" that all the Crockett lines in their book are related. Many of the families mentioned in this book have been proven by DNA to be unrelated. Therefore, it is anyone's guess as to which line could rightfully claim Antoine as their ancestor. For anyone to do so at this time is pure and imaginative speculation inspired by a desire to have a noble ancestor.
