Pres Teddy Roosevelt ... an interesting story that built a legend ... See MoreSee Less

The story of Elizabeth Crockett, buried at Acton, Texas, outside Granbury.Elizabeth Patton married David Crockett in 1815, becoming his second wife. In the mid-1850s, many years after Crockett’s 1836 death in the battle of the Alamo, Elizabeth moved her family from Tennessee to the Acton area to claim a land grant for the heirs of Alamo defenders. She and two of her sons settled on the 320 acres granted to them by the Republic of Texas.

After her death at the age of 72 on January 31, 1860, Elizabeth was laid to rest in the Acton Cemetery, dressed in the widow’s black she had worn since hearing of her husband’s death.

In 1911, the state placed a monument at her burial site, commemorating the widow of one of Texas’ most celebrated folk heroes. The location is now our Acton State Historic Site.
