On August 16, he rode to Polly's house with family and friends, determined to ride off with Polly to be married elsewhere.
Polly's father pleaded with Crockett to have the wedding in the Finley home.
Crockett spoke "mainly to the subject of Texan independence," as well as Washington politics.
Crockett arrived in Nacogdoches, Texas in early January 1836.
Crockett sold off most of the acreage to help settle his debts, and moved his family to the remaining acreage on the Obion River, which remained in Carroll County until 1825 when the boundaries were reconfigured and put it in Gibson County.
