Jim, Thank you for the info.This could be a connection. It is not certain but, Rowena was most likely born in Virgina.
Various sources give different birth and marriage locations:
Goodspeed's 1887 History of Lake County, Tennesseestates that Rowena was born in Missouri in 1802 and that Rowena and Daniel were married in Missouri.The "Lake County, Tennessee History 1870-1992" states that Dan Watson married Rowena Barlett in North Carolina.On the 1850 and the 1860 Fulton County census records, Rowena's birthplace is listed as Virginia. In "Notable Men of Tennessee" it is stated that Daniel Watson married a Miss Bartlett, a native of North Carolina and a near relative of John Randolph of Roanoke, Virginia. Rowena did name one of her sons John Randolph Watson.
Do you have any Bartlett's connect to John Randolph of Roanoke?
