Davey Crockett and Ben Crenshaw

Pro Golfer Ben Crenshaw's maternal grandfather was James Nathaniel Johnson. My Grandfather was Reece Gillespie Johnson. James Nathaniel Johnson and Reece Gillespie Johnson were brothers. That makes pro golfer Ben Crenshaw my second cousin.

In researching my wifes line I found that she and I are 9th cousins thrice removed. Now isn't that strange...because she is also Ben Crenshaw's 9th cousin thrice removed...wow...you think my kids would have gotten some of the golf gene, but NO, cousin Ben had to hog it all!

In reasearching the Crenshaw Line line I found out that James Nathaniels wife Nannie Lou Gillespie was related to the Crockett line. It turns out that Davey Crockett is my second cousin's GGGGrandfather...who knew. All I can say is ... REMEMBER THE ALAMO!!!

I never did like that Santa Anna fella....

It is interesting to know that the Gillespie guns were handmade in Virginia (later in NC) and were some of the finest weapons made during their era. Research "Gillespie Gun Makers of East Fork NC". In this book, T. Dennis Glazener, himself a Gillespie descendant, combines genealogical information on the Gillespie gunmakers with photos and documentation on their guns. Using copious original sources, Glazener traces the Gillespie gunmakers from John Gillespie, Sr., born circa 1753 in Virginia, to Robert Harvey Gillespie (1791-1881). Original documents, including wills, pension applications and census records among others, combine to give a picture of the life and work of these gunmakers. Altogether ten Gillespie gunmakers are covered, representing three generations.

After the Crockett data below I have included the Johnson Data showing the ties between Ben Crenshaw and my family. After the Johnson data I have included data on the Glenns showing that Ben Crenshaw and I are also related to Astronaut John Glenn. At the bottom is a little data on the Crenshaw line including Judge Anderson Crenshaw (b 1773).

Note: The data on Judge Anderson Crenshaw was found while researching my Congresman Ander Crenshaw to see if there was a link. The data on Judge Anderson Crenshaw was well researched by Ms Annie Crenshaw and is found on her "Southern Traditions" website

Making their home on The Ridge in the northwes tern section of Butler County, Anderson and Mary raised their four surviving children: Walter Henry, Thomas Chiles, Charles Edward and Frederick William. They adopted a young girl as a daughter, Adah Thigpen, after having lost their only daughter in infancy at Cahaba. There on The Ridge, high on a hill facing the road to the Alabama River, Judge Crenshaw built his plantation home in 1835. He died at this home in 1847.

Crenshaw County, Alabama, created from the eastern portion of Butler County, was named in Anderson Crenshaw's honor shortly after the War Between the States.
