I am seeking information about Phila Watson GOODWIN. She was one of my wife's great aunts. --- She and her family has lost all track of Phila and her family.
Phila was born Phila Watson some time after 1868 in Muscatine Co., IA. -- Probably near Atalissa.Her parents were Samuel Dyer & Susan DICKERSON WATSON. We know she married ??? GOODWIN, that she lived most , if not all, her adult life in the Portland, OR area and that her siblings were Isaac (my wife's grand-father) Carson, Edward and Carrie.
I have in hand a copy of a note she wrote to her cousin, Sherman WATSON in 1951, establishing the fact that she was still living at that time.
I hope this info rings a bell somewhere in someone's family tree. My wife and I, and another cousin, are desirous of remaking contact with someone in Phila's family so we might substantiate and further our knowledge of our common ancestry.
