"A portrait of folk hero frontiersman Davy Crockett's widow, a WNC native, has been sold at auction for $10,500. Davy Crockett represented Tennessee in Congress and died at the Battle of the Alamo. In 1815, he married Elizabeth Patton, a Swannanoa Valley native born in 1788, according to Citizen-Times archives. The second marriage for both, she was the daughter of Robert Patton, who owned a thousand acres along the Swannanoa River at the time. She was the mother of two of his children and often remembered in history books as the stability in a family given to changing fortunes and continual moving, Citizen-Times columnist Geoffrey Cantrell wrote in 2002. She died on Jan. 31, 1860, at the age of 72 and was buried in Acton Cemetery in Texas. She had moved her family to the Acton area to claim a land grant for the heirs of Alamo defenders."
