Colonel Samuel Watson

+6 votes
I am a direct descendant of Colonel Samuel Watson who, from what I know, was one of 20 for SC and was part of the Continental Congress. Would love to help out where I can.

Hi Barbara, nice to meet you.  Welcome to WikiTree :)
Hi Barbara

I have a Capt Patrick Watson, born in PA in 1745  -  moved to Boone's Creek, Clark, KY in 1793   Died there in 1801.   Any chance they were related?     Thanks    Mary
Hi Barbara. Col Sam is my 3rd great grandfather so I guess that makes us related.
Wow! Well I am related this way (down the line):

Samuel Watson
John Watson
Narcissa Watson married to (direct line) Martin Forehand
Here's my line: Col Sam 3rd maternal GGF

Hugh Watson (1775-1826) 2nd GGF

Samuel M Watson (1806-2879 GGF

Rev. Harvey Hiram Watson (1849-1920) Maternal GF

Alice Belle Watson (1907-2000) - mother

I never met my grandfather since he died when my mother was 12. He was much older than my grandmother, who was his 3rd wife.

Looks like that is a yes but it is showing him in NC not Kentucky. I just looked on Ancestry and everything seems to match relations wise. I have made a copy of the tree and the information just in case.
