Research Notes

Jonathan Crockett, born at Falmouth, who, together with his father, [Nathaniel Crockett] (of the Scottish stock from the north of Ireland,) and brother Nathaniel, had resided awhile in the garrison here, having been driven by the Indians from their residence, then we believe on one of the Fox Islands, was now at the close of the war a resident in this place; and the following year, 1763, married the oldest daughter of Mr. Robbins, but perhaps returned to the island. Seven years later, however, lie became one of the first settlers of what is now Rockland; and his brother Nathaniel was an early, perhaps the earliest settler at Ash Point; the descendants of both having been numerous and including no inconsiderable portion of the business talent of the community.

CROCKETT, Jonathan, born at Falmouth, now Portland, July 2, 1741, O. S. ; m. Elionai Robbins, Jan. 18, 1763 ; was one of the first settlers of what is now Rockland, and died April 20, 1829, aged 88.

The only Crockett family living at Vinalhaven during the Revolutionary War was that of Isaac Crockett, with six sons. The oldest two were Isaac, Jr., and Solomon. We have their marriages. This James could or could not have been one of the others. If he was Isaacs' son he could have (or not) been born at Vinalhaven. We are not sure if Isaac stayed on the Island continually. He was there in 1790 with six boys--one over 16--5 under. He had married a Widow, but no one knows just when. She was married to her first husband, James Toburn or Tobin, in 1762 as of Pemaquid. Both of them. For some years I wondered about the time that first Isaac Crockett had arrived in Vinalhaven, because he did not sign petition for a town in 1786 as did most of the inhabitants. He could easily have been away at sea fishing. It was only about a month ago that I located a deed that had been skipped when new books of deeds covering what is now Knox County were copied. This old deed showed that Isaac Crockett had sold his land at the Great Fox Island (Vinalhaven) in 1774. That would bring him in that locality at a time when my family of Crocketts were selling their lands on the Islands. By the time that the Revolution was under way old Nathaniel and his sons had all settled (as far as we knew unless Isaac was one of them) on the mainland at Thomaston, now Rockland, Owls Head, Ash Point, etc. Crockettt Family Book akrc May 2006 1/29/2007 update Printed 9/9/2012 page 49 of 59
