FHB Richard Watson
From Family History Book
Family History Book: Richard W Watson (1823-?)
- Richard Watson is presumed to be one of the three male children in the household of Lucinda (Holman) Watson in the 1840 US census in Coweta County, Georgia. The other two children in that census are probably Elias and Charles M Watson. Richard married Mary Ann "Polly" Cox in Carroll County, Georgia in 1849. Elias Watson, age 21, was listed in Richard's household in 1850. That year Charles was living with his mother, who had remarried to Odell Odom in 1841 after the presumed death of Richard, Elias & Charles Watson's father, the unknown Mr. Watson, between about 1837 and 1840. The names and ages of Richard and Mary Ann's children are from the 1850 and 1860 US census records. Since Mary was listed as head of household in 1860, Richard may have died before then. No other records of this family have been found so far.
Richard W Watson's known descendants are:
- daughter, Winnie A Watson (1850-?)
- daughter, Amanda Watson (1852-?)
