Do you have any information you could share re: African American Watkins family. My grandmother is Jessie Webb. She was born in 1927 probably in Oxford, Granville Co, NC. She is one of 13 children born of James Nathanial Webb and Mattie Watkins. Mattie's father was Richard Watkins. Jessie doesn't recall her grandmother's name. But Mattie did have siblings. Elizabeth, Adolphus, Richard Jr., Emma, Eva, Gracie, Emmitt, William McKinley and Naomi Watkins. If you have any information that would be helpful, please let me know. Perhaps I will be able to assist you as well.
