"Mansil Crisp, b. 1764 NC, lived Laurens Co., SC, KY, and TN...Believe he md. Margaret Rodgers. He left SC about 1800, spent a few years in KY, then to TN about 1805 and stayed until his death in 1850. There is good circumstantial evidence that he may be s/o William Crisp, Jr., the s/o Old William Crisp (b. abt. 1700, d. 1783, had 18 chd. named in his will).
The name Mansil runs very strong in some Crisp lines but nobody has
ever found the source of the name. The name Mansil may only be used by
descendants of Old William's first wife and is not used by chd. of "last"
wife Frances. However, we have some doubt on this question so it's not
resolved. So there is a possibility that Mansil is the surname of
Old William's first wife? Mansil moved along with Davy Crockett and they
had several business connection and Davy md. one of Mansil's daughters."
