Walter Crockett was born in the 1730s. By 1760, he had joined the Augusta County militia. Rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel, he subsequently served in the militias for Botetourt, Fincastle, and then Montgomery Counties, beginning in 1769. He participated in the Point Pleasant expedition of 1774 during Dunmore's War, and in Revolutionary War activities in southwestern Virginia in 1779 and 1780. He represented Montgomery County in the Virginia House of Delegates (1777-1779 and 1789) and at Virginia's convention to ratify the U.S. Constitution in 1788. Crockett became the clerk of the court of Wythe County in 1790. He died in 1811.
