Uh huh. That Robert Crockett of 1769 would have been old enough to be Davy's grandfather. And, yes, this fits with the time period of the longhunters.

BTW; I once knew a guy named David Crockett. He was from Vermont.

Alvin C. York's father would have lived during the 1800's - far too late to be a longhunter. However, I did hear once that one of York's ancestors was a longhunter and was the first white man accredited to enter the Valley of the Three Forks of the Wolf, in what is now Fentress County. Supposedly, he lived under a rock shelter there while he hunted the valley.
I have spent some time in Fentress County, and have seen the rock shelter, as well as toured Alvin York's home.

The Battle of King's Mountain took place in October of 1780 - too late for your Robert Crockett who was killed in 1769 or '70.

I think this is fascinating stuff. This is some of the kinds of topics that I enjoy on muzzleloading sites.
I don't read anything that mentions inlines, pyrodex, sabots and such as that. I don't care about that stuff and don't want to hear about it. For me, with muzzleloading, if it didn't exist before the 1860's it don't exist now.

WOW, we are SO much alike in this respect, kind of spooky. \:D
As was tradition "back in the day" most people named their kids after the father or grandfather and had kind of a "family first name" that got passed on from one generation to the next. I'd bet that you'll find a Robert in every generation of Crocketts same as a Davy. This is interesting stuff though. Good luck with the search. ;\)

It's a shame but it looks like I may have to go to Ken-tuk-ee to get some guys willing to fill in for re-enactors of the VOLUNTEER state because so far there are no volunteers in Tennessee!
