Re: Robert Leroy Watson 1829 SC in Atala Co., MS
Found this under Isaiah Josiah Watson the son of Robert Leroy and Margarete Stucky Watson:
birth:1880 tx census
death: in my notes given by iva block
Note: there is a girl born abt 1872 died abt 1874 when she was 2 years old. death in tx
Iva Block my grandmother, spoke only about william hilery, John, and Dicky.
She said Dick married a woman name Lilly, and had a daughter named Mable in Paris, tx. She also said that Uncle Dicky was william's half brother, but I have found no proof of that.
I haven't worked on this family in years. I didn't find a Voila or Vada Watson in my list of names. Re-read your post and looked for Viola or Vada Evans either.
We just received our 23andMe reports. I just started researching them lastnight. I will try to help with your post but not sure right now how much time I can give to it. We are so excited about our new information. :) One of my husband's cousins in a Watson and I will let him know of this. Maybe he can help you more than I could anyway. I didn't even have Lillie's last name, thanks for supplying that. I have never been able to connect Robert Leroy Watson with any families further back. There are a couple of families that I thought could be his but that never panned out.
I'll save your email and try to work on this. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. It's raining here and we sure need that rain. :)
