Sorry to say that your Caroline Margaret Watts of GA is not the same as Margaret Caroline Watts, daughter of Elezar Watts and Ann Edwards of Henry Co., AL and Jackson & Washington Co., FL. See below.

Isaiah Watts, son of Thomas Watts & Tabitha, was enumerated in Kershaw co., SC in 1810 & 1820 as was his brother Benjamin. Julius Alexander Watts lived in Sumpter Co., SC BUT is absent from that place in either 1800 or 1810. Neither Tabitha, Benjamin nor Isaiah Watts are enumerated in SC Census prior to 1810.

1830 Henry Co., AL Federal Census:
Isaiah Watts is enumerated here with several of his children in residence. There is also enumerated in 1830 Henry Co., AL one Edward Watts.

Elezar Watts m. 28 March 1830 Henry Co., AL Ann E. Edwards, daughter of Thomas and Barber Edwards.
Ann E. Edwards was born 28 August, 1805 in Orangeburg, SC. She removed witih her parents to Henry Co., AL in 1828, where she married Ebenezer Watts, March 28, 1830; she died January 19, 1877, Jackson County, FL
