Re: Mahulda Watson m Thomas Elms
Hi, my ggrandmothers were Mary Watson m 1st Wesley James Clark and he m 2nd Mahulda Ann Watson Elms. Eliza Jane Watson sister to Mary and Mahulda Ann m Robert Gilmore Peel. All in Independence Co. AR. Mary and Eliza Jane are my ggrandmothers.
There are those who say their Father was William Watson and or John William Watson.I have not confirmed this and could be speculation etc. I would like to know.
There are other posting about these Watson's in Independence Co. AR but I have never been able to link all of them that are listed together and some do not appear in census in the County. I consider these posting as suspect.
Recently I was posting Hulda Ann on the net and in the process I turned up a John T. Watson b. 1806 in KY living in a family of Watson's that listed Hulda A. Mary, Eliza Jane and others. He apparently was not the father of these children for the posting was in Hempstead Co. AR by Diane Bender. Apparently this family moved between Hempstead Co and Bosque Co. TX.It seemed strange that issues in this family were so similar to my Independence Co, AR family and I sensed a kinship.
