Re: Watson family of Connecticut & NY
Do you have a list of Cyprian's children?I am looking for the parents of Rufus Watson, born in NY ca. 1794.He married Elizabeth (Southworth?) by 1819 (birth of first known child); Elizabeth was born in Connecticut ca. 1795.Rufus was in Perrysburg, Cattaraugus County, NY for the 1820, 1830 and 1840 censuses, and then moved to southeastern Wisconsin. In the 1860's Rufus accompanied his only son to western Wisconsin (Elizabeth may have died; she's not mentioned in 1870 census). Census records suggest that Rufus and Elizabeth had only 2 children, David and Mary Ann, but David named a daughter Clarinda.Although all census records show Rufus's wife as Elizabeth or E., David's death records says his mother was named Abigail.
