It looks like Martha might have been a first cousin, once removed, of Davy Crockett. 

Wikipedia (hopefully accurately) says this:

[David "Davy" Crockett's] great-grandparents Joseph Louis Crockett and Sarah Stewart Crockett immigrated to New York from Ireland c1708. Their son David and his wife, killed by Native Americans in North Carolina, had three sons named James, Joseph and John... David Crockett was the fifth of nine children of John Crockett and Rebecca Hawkins. 

Therefore the line down is:

Joseph Louis Crockett Sr. m. Sarah Stewart.

Children included:

David Crockett m. Wife

<-- siblings -->

Joseph Louis Crockett Jr. m. Jeanne de Vigne

John Crockett m. Rebecca Hawkins

<-- cousins -->

Martha Crockett

David “Davy” Crockett

First cousin, once removed of Martha

 

 

If Martha had children, her children would have been second cousins with Davy.

 

This assumes that what is found on both wikipedia and wikitree is accurate. It would need to be confirmed.
