Davy Crockett's Marriage License Dispute

Biography - Davy Crockett (A&E DVD Archives)

In Hillsborough County, Tennessee, officials are petitioning a judge to enforce an order that 90-year-old Margaret Smith return the original marriage license application of one Davy Crockett. The county claims that the document is the property of the county and must be return in order to be placed on display in the local museum. Smith and her son Vance, a lawyer, stated the document was passed down to her by her father who received it from her brother while he was working for the county. Supposedly the courthouse in Dandridge, Tennessee was throwing away all old documents of no use and were in the process of discarding the document when Smith's uncle grabbed it.
