In a Contact email received from Tim Morefield in August, 2010, he identified Lois Bales Crockett (see the pictures with this article) as his great grandmother via her son Carter Edward Morefield.  He says:

"I am writing with regard to Lois Bales Crockett and William Richard Morefield who are interred in the Crockett-Gleaves cemetery in Brentwood. On your website documenting the graves in this cemetery you have these people listed as being unidentified. These people were my great grandparents via their son Carter Edward Morefield. Lois Bales Crockett was the daughter of James Hunter Valley Jim Crockett and Mary Malvina Crockett. James HVJ Crockett was the son of Robert Elliott and Elizabeth (Gibson)Crockett. Robert Elliott was the son of Andrew and Sarah (Elliott) Crockett. My information is that this was the Lt. Andrew Crockett who served in the Revolutionary war for which he was awarded land grants in TN where he moved to in 1799. It is my understanding that this is the person for whom the cemetery was originally named. "


Crockett Springs was built in the early 1800's as a log house by Joseph Crockett who came to the Brentwood area in 1808 to take up the 640 acre land grant willed to him by his father John Crockett, who died in 1799, in Wythe County, Virginia. Joseph Crockett married his cousin, Polly Crockett.  They reared a large family here. The house was built of logs cut on the place.  It originally faced the old road that ran from Wilson Pike to the Nashville Pike, the bed of which can still be seen between the house and the cemetery. The place remained in the Crockett family until 1955.  The outline of the old house can be seen under the framing. The stone chimney in the kitchen is original.  Today the house forms the central part of the clubhouse for Crockett Springs National Golf and Country Club.

A nice website showcasing the cemetery.

There are three Crockett Cemeteries:   One is simply called Crockett Cemetery, the second one is the Andrew Crockett Cemetery and the third one is the Joseph Crockett Cemetery (this is the same cemetery as the Crockett-Gleaves Cemetery.)
