Sampson WATSON.Sampson's family lived in St Helena Par. and several of them married there.He and his family were in Rapides Par. for the 1830 census and in Catahoula Par. for the 1840 census.They were in Newton Co., TX in 1850 and then back to Rapides in the 1860.I did not find them in the 1870 census.Sampson and Rhoda are said to have died in Beauregard Par. in 1880.
