Submitted by: Debra LaMel

Hi My name is Debra LaMel and my gggrandfather Leonard Louis Crockett was born on June 6, 1852 in Buna, Jasper Co., Tx to Andrew David Crockett and Clarissa "Claricy" Ann Richardson (maiden name) Richardson (first Married name when she married her 2nd cousin Robert W Richardson) Crockett Foster. Leonard First married Tabitha A Richardson (Tabitha was daughter of Leonard moms brother James Marion and his wife Jane Hargrove Richardson) on 9-3-1873 they had one child William Rufus Crockett b 7-28-1874 She died in Childbirth Then Leonard on 10-15-1877 married Sina "Sinny" Jane Strawthers in Jasper Co. Tx.  They moved to Limestone Co. Tx sometime between 1880 and 1900. Leonard's brother David was already in Limestone Co. Tx.  Leoanrd and Sina are buried in Block 100 unmarked in Mart City Cemetery in Mart, McLennan Co., TX.

I have been doing genealogy for about 5 Years and in 4 of those 5 years have been trying to get copies of the bible pages of Leonard and Sina from my cousin Brenda who owns the bible and now resides in Florida.I have finally just this week got those copies and would like to contribute these records for other researchers and future generations to come

Here is a transcription of those Bible Records just as they are in the Bible pages.

There are several different handwritings through out these pages and if any one would like hard copies of these pages please feel free to ask free of charge

Since there are mostly only initials in the Bible I have took the liberty of adding the full names in Blue and the relationship to Leonard and Sina 



The Marriage license of Leonard and Sina state they were married Oct 18,1878 his name is listed Leonard Crockett and her is Sina Strawther part of there marriage license was also included with these Bible Records 



The Death of Leonard occured in Waco McLennan Co Tx on 10-5-1944 and I find it odd that his date was not recorded in the Bible but has been since by the now owner of the Bible Brenda Joyce Cunningham Abraham

Any one interested in any other further info on this Family they may contact me
