Vera Crockett (1886-1933) is direct line, married to James Albert McKenney. That family is covered elsewhere on this blog.

Dorothy Sadie Crockett was born 1892 Oct 7 in Chautauqua County, Kansas and would die 1980 July 24 in Rogers, Benton, Arkansas. She was married on 1910 Dec 21 to John Allen Fleming. He was born 1888 Jan 4 in Kansas and died 1983 Feb in Robers, Benton, Arkansas. John was the son of John Fleming b. 1847 in Indiana, and Carrie, b. 1859 in Missouri.

The census data I have for Dot and John:
