Bernie Gamble This is an excerpt from the book 'Three Men of Destiny: Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston and David Crockett' By Billy Kennedy Seems you may have a connection with the King of the Wild Frontier.aka Davy Crockett. Apparently the Crockett family intermarried with the Gamble and Donaghey families. Why doesn't this surprise me ? lol!

The coolest thing about Davy Crockett? He stood up to Andrew Jackson on the Indian Removal Act. "I bark at no man's bid."

Today is Davy Crockett's birthday. 19th century American folk hero, frontiersman, soldier and politician -- "King of the Wild Frontier". He represented Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives, served in the Texas Revolution, and died at the Battle of the Alamo. As a Congressman he vehemently opposed many of Pres. Andrew Jackson's policies, including the Indian Removal Act. He was a great hunter and story teller.
Yas! All Tennesseans are like Davy Crockett & Andrew Jackson! Pmsl! We don't put up with Scotland's Shame!!!
A Creek Indian village, Black Warrior Town, was believed to be near the mouth of the Sipsey Fork. Older maps show Black Warrior Town on the east bank of Warrior River a little south and west of the community of Dilworth, in Walker County. When one of Andrew Jackson's generals, John Coffee, was sent to destroy Creek settlements in the basin, the famed Davy Crockett mentioned Black Warrior Town in his memoirs of these scuffles with the Creeks.
'Cherokee' is Creek for 'people with another language'. The best-known episode in Cherokee history was also the worst: the Trail of Tears, the forced relocation of the Cherokee Indians from their ancestral home in the southeast to Oklahoma. The Cherokee people were an urban, Christian, agricultural, intermarried society who had supported the United States against other tribes. In the end this was all for nothing. Though prominent Americans like Davy Crockett and Daniel Webster spoke against Removal, and though the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional, President Andrew Jackson sent in the army. Fifteen to twenty thousand Cherokee Indians (along with Choctaw, Creek, and other tribes) were rounded up and herded to Oklahoma in the winter of 1838-1839. Driven from their homes without being allowed to collect their possessions first, even their shoes, the Cherokees were no better equipped for an 800-mile forced march than people today would be. Between four and eight thousand Cherokee people died of exposure ...
Alexander's Essay – May 3, 2012 The Battle of Athens (Tennessee) A Case Study in Grassroots Restoration of the Rule of Law "The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation ... forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of." -- James Madison (1788) Vets firing on McMinn Jail As a direct descendent of Tennessee Patriots who were veterans of every major conflict in defense of American Liberty from the American Revolution forward, I stand in awe of my home state's distinguished list of Patriot sons and daughters. From 19th-century notables like Andrew Jackson, Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, Nathan Bedford Forrest and Sam Davis, to a long list of 20th-century Patriots headed by Alvin York, warriors from the "Volunteer State" have distinguished themselves in battle with honor and courage. Even our state's nickname was earned in recognition of the valiant service of volunte ...
