Looking for information on John D Watts, born about 1825 (per census information) in Tennessee. Married Frances Jane Clampett in 1848 (per family records) in Jefferson County, Illinois. Lived in area as far as we can tell especially in Morgan County. They had many children: Harriet, Sarah, James, Hester, William, Elisa, F Anna and Charles L. (my great grandfather). A bit confusing because there seems to also be a Dr. John D Watts living in the area who was from England, but could be a relative to ours.
I can trace Frances' background but just have not been able to find anything on John David. Any help appreciated. Thanks so much for your time.
