DAVIS & WATSON, Pr. Geo. Co., MD

Classification: Query
In which county in Kentucky was Cornelius WATSON born? USGenWeb might have something at the county level.

Have you checked all of the censuses for the lifetime of your Cornelius WATSON, b. 1828? The 1830 KY Census should indicate which WATSON had a male of the right age. Was your inference about the mother being Elizabeth from the Pulaski Co., MO, 1850 census record?

Elizabeth WATSON, 60, b. MD; with Martha, 22; Rachael, 17, both b. KY; also Harriet RAY, 32, MD; Malinda FOSTER, 16, IL; & Thos. FOSTER, 2/12, MO.

Nearby were WATSON, Cornelius, 22, KY; Maryann, 18, MO; & Geo. W., 1, MO.

In 1840 in Miller Co., MO, there were heads of households: WATSON, Andrew, James, & John T. In 1850, Miller Co., WATSON, John, 32, MD; Sarah, 30, KY; ch. b. MO: Alexander, 11; Sarah, 9; James, 7; David, 5; & Wm., 1. {I don't see Andrew & James.}

Miller Co., MO, Marriages:
WATSON, Joab, 25 Jan. 1857, Sarah H. JOHNSON
WATSON, Cornelius, 19 N 1854, Elvina JOHNSTON
[ Elvina / Elvira JOHNSON / JOHNSTON?]
WATSON, Richard F., 27 Oct. 1854, Susanna WOOD
WATSON, Richard L., 3 Apr. 1856, Lucinda CONNER
WATSON, Wm. N., 16 Jan. 1857, Rebecca ULMAN.

RootsWeb: Cornelius WATSON m. 19 Nov. 1854, Miller Co., MO, Elvira JOHNSTON. Son Henry Franklin WATSON (Oct. 1860, MO - 17 May 1929, Mustang, OK, bu. Memorial Pk., OK City, OK) m. 25 Dec. 1883, Wise Co., TX, Rosa Jane BODINE (15 July 1866 - 29 Je. 1949). (Miller Co., MO, M. [A:175], by Reuben BURNETT, JP).

The will of Wm. BLACKWELL, made 25 July 1856, Dent Co., MO., pr. Waynesville, Pulaski Co., MO; named dau. Mary Ann WATSON. Could that mean that she and Cornelius divorced, or was that just another Mary Ann WATSON?

Have you checked whether there was a widow's pension for the Civil War service? Have you checked Camp Morton, IN, National Cemetery to see what information they might have?
