Re: Anne Green Read, Danville VA
The information I have on George Alanson Watson is that he married in 1884 to Sally Ross Keen, daughter of John Thomas Keen and Mary Virginia Doe (who was descended from John Lewis of the Byrd, and his wife Catherine Fauntleroy, son of Robert Lewis of "Belvoir" and his wife Jane Merriwether). They had three children:John T. Watson III, m. Mary Boisseau; Marion Ross Watson m. Eleanor Thomas; Sally Keen Watson m. Albert Tebo.--- George was one of 3 children born to Anne G. Read, b. 1-26-1836.Anne G. Reed is one of 5 daughters born to George Whitfield Read and Charlotte A. Edmunds, m. Aug. 1832. (Both were born in Danville, VA).They are descendants of Col. Isaac Read I and Sarah Embra, m. Oct. 1771 in Brunswick Co., VA. I am a descendant of one of their children, Isaac Read II m. Anne Mayo Venable.My mom was named after Anne Mayo Venable Read.My mom's name is Anne Read Slaughter Strader. She was born in Danville, VA as was I ...Jennifer Anne Strader Faulkner.If you need anything else, just let me know. I'd be interested in knowing if you know anything else about the connection between the Read's and the Maury's.
