Watson Hollow outside of Rome

Surnames: Watson, Myers, Willetson
Does anyone know how Watson Hollow got its name? My wife had relatives that lived there. One was Sarah Watson, the wife of John Myers. He is buried in Wright Settlement Cemetery, and I believe she is too but never found a stone. Recently discovered that Sarah had a sister, Melita Watson who married James Cobb. Their parents were, according to Sarah's death certificate, David Watson and Lucinda Patchin. Sarah was born in Ogdensburg but moved to the Rome-Utica area when young. It could be that David Watson was the son of Ebenezer Watson and Cynthea Willetson but I haven't proved that yet. I do know that a lot of Watson's lived in that area.
