Surnames: WATTS, JONES,
Seeking any info on William WATTS who wrote his will in Iredell Co., NC on 11 Oct 1789. Names listed in will are:

Wife - never mentions her name
Sons: "My loving son THOMAS when he comes of age"
"My loving son JOHN"
"My loving son WILLIAM"
"All of my Daughters who choose to live unmarried"
"My son JAMES"
"My loving wife and my sons JAMES, HENRY?, JOHN, WILLIAM, my executors"

The minor son, Thomas Watts, is of great interest to me. I have a Thomas Watts b. abt. 1775-1780 in NC. He first shows up in Davidson Co., TN in the 1805 tax list. There is a William Watts that shows up early in Davidson Co., TN too but, he is gone pretty quickly. Thomas Watts married Elizabeth Betsy Jones on 27 Nov 1807 in Davidson Co., TN. They are in Robertson Co., TN abt. 1830 and Thomas Watts died there in 1837.

I wish to know if anyone has any info on this William Watts and any of his children especially Thomas.

Thank you,
Judy Lee Watts

I'm sorry I can't help!!! But...I too am searching for any information on William Watts born 1812 in NC. My first record of him is in 1840 Fed Census of Perry County Missouri where he states he was born in NC. He is living beside his widowed mother-in-law Amy Clifton from Lincoln County, NC. I show no Watts from Lincoln County but many from Iredell county NC with the same family names...

My William Watts born 1812 in NC had four sons named James, Robert, John and William Jr.

I have added your info and e-mail address to my data base just in case we match up some day!!
