30 According to Tanner Wickham, William Wickham was kicked by a mule and died and is buried on the Jake Dunbar Place in Montgomery County, Tennessee. Aunt Bunny says that Jake Dunbar Place is close to Sailor Rest Church which is located close to the Montgomery County/Stewart County line down on Hwy. 149.
Wickham, William (I0331)
31 Affectionately known to all of her children and grandchildren as Mama Crockett. She was a quiet, demure, lady with little to say, especially nothing bad about anyone. She was very petite, coming in under 5 feet. She was born into a wealthy family but never seemed dismayed that her choice to marry a man below her economic stature kept them struggling for a livelihood, as she was wealthy in children and love, and shared her wealth of family with her childless siblings that lived on the Robert Anderson Wickham home place. She was a devoted Christian woman and was a key player in the forming of the Canaan Church under an oak tree. She had a beautiful alto voice as a young woman and enjoyed singing for the Church in a quartet. She was a good mother and wonderful homemaker and a devoted loving wife to Nolen Gus Crockett for over 50 years.

Nolen and Madge died exactly three weeks apart with Nolen dying in Memorial Hospital of a Cerebral hemmorage at 12:15 p.m. after a long illness, and Madge dying of parkinson disease at 8:30 p.m. in Palmyra at the Nursing Home. Family members believed she gave up life after her beloved Nolen had passed and could not survive without him. A virtuous woman until the end. They both are buried in the Palmyra Methodist Church Cemetery, in Palmyra, Tennessee next to their fourth Daughter, Neva Gale Crockett Rosson Turewicz.

Per Aunt Bunny, Mama Crockett could read and write and did these things often in helping Papa Crockett as he was not afforded a formal education due to be an orphan early in life.

At the time of her death she was 76 years, 11 months, 19 days old. 
Wickham, Madge Bridget (I0007)
32 After her mother dies (Elizabeth YARBROUGH Jackson) her mother's sister (Eliza Jane YARBROUGH Harris) and her husband (Isham HARRIS) adopt her and raise her. She is the daughter of John Jackson and Elizabeth Yarbrough. Jackson, Nettie Harris (I2012)
33 After the fall of Ft. Donelson Robert Lewis Wickham was appointed Military Jailer at the jail in Clarksville, where he served during the Occupation of the area.

Court was in session in Clarksville on Feb. 16, 1862, the day Ft. Donelson fell. Civilian Government ceased. The next entry in the book is dated Feb. 7, 1865: "This day Barry Lyle produced in open court from Sheriff J. C. Shackleford, Special Sheriff of Montgomery County, Tennessee his Certificate of Election----" His bond for $30,000 was signed by W. S. Poindexter, Saml. Woodridge, S.G. Wickham, and R. L. Wickham as his security. (The later would be Sameul Goodson Wickham and Robert Lewis Wickham). All of these men were prominent citizens of Montgomery County and Unionist. J. C. Shackleford was an attorney and Supreme Court Judge, and W. S. Poindexter was Cashier and founder of Franklin Bank in Clarksville. The fact that these men were active in civilian government suggests they were Unionist. This was the year of 1864 as paraphrased by Louis Wickham's comments in Frankie Daniel Sellas's book The Home Folk, page 12.

Also noted was the economic oppression of reconstruction and the financial ruins of fellow neighbors due to the burning of Palmyra and surrounding area in April of 1863. After the war the Wickhams returned to their land, house and buildings being as they started, more fortunate than most due to being Unionist. Regardless of the Civil War, wounds healed and Robert Lewis Wickham was well respected as were his children in the Palmyra Community.

Wilson, Nathaniel (I0891)
35 As children we knew our grandfather as Papa Crockett. He was quite tall even in his old age, towering over 6 feet. Quite a contrast to the petite wife that he chose in Madge Bridgette Wickham. He was looked upon as being a loving father but strict disciplinarian, understandably so, as he fathered six beautiful girls and only one son to help in the protection of family. He was blessed with children that adorned him and family that visited regularly up until his death. His fifth child, Martha Madge Crockett, devoted her life to his care and support as well as that of his beloved Madge. As a young father he had a quick wit and fun loving nature. He was married to Madge for over 50 years and died only three weeks prior to his lifelong mate. As in life, they shared everything, good and bad.

Per Aunt Bunny, (Martha Madge Crockett) my mother's sister, Papas mother and father died while Papa was a small child. He was 5 when his mother Malinda H. Carver Crockett died, and was 7 when his father William A. Crockett died. After the funeral a Mrs. Nolan Russell took Papa home from the Cemetery to live with her husband and their children. Papa also lived with his brother and his wife, J. William Crockett and Agnes Carver Crockett. Later on he went to live with Levy Bryant. This was during the time that he was working for the railroad. His parents are buried in unmarked graves within a Carver's Cemetery off of Highway 13. Aunt Bunny says you go to Oak Ridge Road till you get to Hwy. 13 and then you take a left and go down that road a good piece, and there is a large house and barn on the left and you go about a mile and the graveyard is up a field from that place.

Papa Crockett had a nickname for all of his children.

Audrey - UGG
Gatha - Bear
Virginia - Doodle
Neva - Neg
Martha Madge - Shoe Button, Dody, and finally BUNNY (everyone calls her by this to this day)
Jewell - Nunk ( Jewell used to say he was his mother"s little "Nunkey")
Joyce - Hootie

Per Aunt Bunny, Papa could not read or write because he was an orphan very early in live and did not have a great deal of formal education. (please see 1930 Census #17) He signed his papers with his mark which was witnessed and signed by an individual that could write.

He is also listed as being a farmer doing general farming and that he is currently employed. He is listed as not being a veteran and that both he and his wife speak English.

At the time of his death he was 81 years, 3 months, 6 days old.

Crockett, Nolen Gus (I0006)
36 As referenced in Frances Daniel Sellas' book The Home Folk, Samual Goodson and Delilah lived on Barton Creek in Montgomery County, on a 300-acre farm. They were childless but they did adopt Frances (Fannie) and Charlie Cunningham, whose father had been killed in the Civil War battle of Ft. Donelson. An older brother Ed retained the name Cunningham, but lived as a family member. Fannie married the son of Sam's brother Robert, Dr. John William Wickham.

Q. Did she leave a will?
A. No.
Q. Do you know how she got title to this property?
A. Well, I just can't answer that. I don't know. It was let by her husband, thorugh, I guess.

A. Buford Jackson and Venie Evans and Winnie Reeves and Hadley Jackson, my husband.

Q. Yes.
A. He is 10. Earl Jackson, he is 8, and Omie here is just 6. (this would imply that Omie is in his mother's lap during the deposition)
Q. These four chidlren live with you?
A. Yes.
Q., Where are you living now?
A. I am workijng at Mr. Sam Broome's.
Q. In what district?
A. In the 19th district of this county?
Q. Do you believe this is about as good a time as another to sell this property that Mrs. Florence Jackson owned?
A. Yes. I think it is just as good a time just to let it go.
Q. Would it be practical to divide that property up among the heirs?
A. I don't think it would, because of the water, it is all at one end, and the buildings are all at one end, and I don't think they could divide it satisfactorialy. There ain't enough to divide among four, it is not big enough for that, and none ain't able to pay the debts.
Q. None of the children would be able to pay the debts, even if it oculd be divided?
A. No, that's the trouble, And
Q. And anyway, because of the way the property is situated in regard to the water and buildings, it wouldn't be practical to divide it?
A. No, I don't think it would.
Q. So you think the best thing to do is to go ahead and sell and pay the debts and what is left beyond that, to divide it out?
A. Yes.
Q. You understand that your children together will be entitled to one-fourth of what is left after payment of the debts and expenses?
A. Yes.
Q. And you know from conditions that won't be very much?
A. Yes, I know it can't be.
Cross examination waived.
