I am looking for information on my gggreat grandfather, Nathaniel Watson. He was born about 1741and died in Tennessee after the 1840 census. I cannot find information on his spouse. I have located two children, William B. and John. There is a lot of information on William B. and his family. I cannot find anything on John. William B. is my ggreat grandfather. George B. is my great grandfather. Lola Watson Zager is my grandmother. T. G. Zager is my father. Does anyone have any information earlier than Nathaniel?
Thanks,
Jackie McKnight

Hello Jackie,
Can you tell me what information you have that verifies Nathaniel as William B Watson's father?

I am assuming that your great grandfather's middle name is Buchanan and he was born in Rusk County, Texas?

My GGgrandfather's name is John Watson b. 1808. He moved from Marion County, TN to Rusk County Texas in 1849-1850. I have been trying to find any family connection between my John and your William B.

Also, I have not been able to find any information on my John's father except 'family lore' that his name was William; (wife Elizabeth) and he died in 1814.

Do you have any more information which could clarify our family. My great grandfather was George Buchanan Watson. His father was William B. (maybe Brown) Watson.

About 1805. William B. was born about 1811. I think John migrated to Texas - I know that William B. did - he settled in Rusk County, Texas.

My John died in Gasconade MO, but his wife and children went to Texas. His son James was in Rusk Co for a while, before going to Blanco Co. Wish we could find a connection.

My John Watson was born in 1808 in Orange County N.C. He migrated with Mother (Betsy or Elizabeth) and Brother (Allen b. 1809) and possibly sister(s) to Tennessee around 1826.
He then moved his family (wife Agnes Gardenhire and, at the time, eight children) to Peatown, Rusk County Texas in 1849; and had 5 more children. Allen and his mother stayed in Tennessee.
