The Watson Surname Project
The Watson surname study has been launched to sort out all the many Watson families. Initially we set out to find relatives of Charles LeRoy Watson Sr., b. 1838 in Georgia and married to Martha Ann Smith, b. 1846 in Butts Co., Georgia. They were living in Calhoun Co., AL in the 1870 census, and in Morgan Co., AL in 1880 (with 4 children). See the website for details. However, any Watson men (or women who can persuade a male Watson relative to be tested) are welcome to join the study, as we never know from where the breakthrough may come that will tell us Charles' (or YOUR ancestor's!) origins. In the process perhaps we can help some unrelated Watsons sort out who they are related to as well.
