The Ballad of Ira Hayes - Johnny Cash. A member of the Apache Nation, he was one of the men who raised the American Flag at Iwo Jima. Sadly, this song is about what happened to him after that.

Two featuring Fess Parker:

 

The Ballad of Davy Crockett - Tennessee Ernie Ford (and recorded first by Fess Parker, himself).

The Ballad of Daniel Boone -  Vera Matson (with her husband, Ken Darby) and Lionel Newman. And, again, recorded by Fess Parker, near as I can tell.
