In response to Barbara: James McWatters came to America from County Down Ireland. One son that was with him was John McWatters. John married Priscilla Lott. They had 8 children, James, Nancy,Polly, John, Elizabeth, Samuel L,William and Jane. William married his first cousin Eliza Jane (first wife Nancy Wells). Thomas Douglas was my grandfather's brother, Benjamin Tillman. Hope this helps.
