Think he was in North to Alaska too.
"North to Alaska, we're goin' north, the rush is on." The gold rush of course.
We didn't have a TV when the Davy Crockett series first broke, but something of the excitement rubbed off and I had a Disney-produced storybook for Christmas that year. Loved the song.
Still mystified as to the name 'Fess'. But too plain idle to look it up!!

Fess Elisha Parker was well-known to California wine addicts, he managed the family winery in California after his acting career.
The name is "family," not explained.
With degrees in history and theatre, he was well-qualified for his roles.

See www.fessparkerwinery.com/Winery. The family also operates a well-thought-of resort.

Reminds me of the old joke.
"How many ears has Davy Crocket got?
Three!
"His right ear, his left ear, and his wild front ear"

Mudcat -

If you're ever rambling the highways of East Tennessee and the winding road through the cornfields takes you here -
Birthplace of Davy Crockett (Limestone, TN)

you'll find the Plaque on the cabin door to say (paraphrase) -
"Contrary to public opinion, Davy Crockett was not 'born on a mountaintop in Tennessee...'. Instead he was born in this river valley in what was Franklin (territory). Dreams die hard and as they say "when the legend becomes fact, print the legend". Translation - I'll stick with the song and Fess Parker (who portrayed both Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone).

Fess Up - we loved this guy

Hi Keith - It would probably be a good idea to start a new thread so this question shows up in the main page of topics, where more people see it. I loved Farewell too, and could never understand why it didn't get more popular.I had a 45 of Tennessee Ernie Ford singing The Ballad of DC and that was on the flip side (there are links above to a couple of other threads about this song). Good luck on your Mindy hunt - sorry I can't help.
