The Watsons of Giles County,Tn. appear to have been the progeny of Mary Brown and her husband who has been called John in some web sites and William in others. This Watson appears to have been born most likely in the 1780's in Virginia. Does anyone know who he is descended from? At least one researcher has suggested William Watson and Fannie Wilkerson/Wilkinson since they had a son William born in 1786 in Va.
