From 1837 to 1841, John W. Crockett, the son of David Crockett, represented the same congressional district as his father, after the legendary frontiersman died at the Alamo in 1836. He married Martha Hamilton in 1828 and practiced law in Paris. Crockett was state attorney general for the Ninth District from 1841 to 1843. He moved to New Orleans in 1843, became editor of the National in 1848, and established the Crescent in 1850. Crockett died in Memphis in 1852, a few months after moving there. He is buried here in the Old City Cemetery.
