In a deed from 1843 recorded in Obion County, Tennessee, John and Catherine Crockett sold some land to Dudley situated in Obion County. He apparently moved to Obion County, for in 1846, as Dudley G. Reaves of Obion County, he sold a "negro boy Andrew" Elijah B. Crockett "during the natural life of my wife Nancy C. Reaves." He and his wife then sold some land to John Crockett in 1848.
