    Notes 
    • Interview with Mrs. Lola BAGGETT Smith on 3/15/2006 via the telephone. She said that her mother Frances CROCKETT Baggett told her that her grandparent's names were William Crockett (called Bill Crockett) and Malinda CARVER Crockett.

      I asked her if she had any family photos or maybe her mother's family bible. She said that her parent's house had burned before she was born and that all of the family photos and bible record was lost in the fire.

      Also interviewed Martha Madge CROCKETT on 3/15/2006 and received a copy of her mother's family bible (Madge Bridget WICKHAM Crockett) which listed the father and mother of her husband Nolen Gus Crockett - His parents were William Crockett and Malinda CARVER Crockett. Aunt Bunny (Martha Madge CROCKETT) said that his father, Nolen Gus Crockett said that his father was named William Crockett
      and his mother was Malinda CARVER Crockett.

      Mrs. Lola BAGGETT Smith and Martha Madge CROCKETT are first cousins. Maggie Frances CROCKETT Baggett was the mother of Lola and Nolen Gus Crockett was the father of Martha Madge CROCKETT. Frances and Nolen Gus Crockett were brother and sister.
