Bidwell Crockett

Correction to Article About Edwin R. Crockett, Robertson County, Tennessee.

A serious error occurred in the article paying tribute to Capt. Edwin R. Crockett, by B. G. Bidwell, Esq., in the December Veteran. The fault was entirely in this office. The last two sentences were added to Mr. Bidwell's tribute. In calling attention to our error, the author of the tribute states: His family and friends in Tennessee know that I know he was not the son of Davy Crockett. He was a son of Martin D. Crockett, and grand-son of Samuel Crockett, one of the earliest settlers in Robertson County, Tenn.
