Biography

Henrietta was born in October of 1853 in Virginia.[1]

Virginia Bluebells

As a young adult she married Samuel Watts,[2] him also being a native of Virginia. At the age of twenty-four she had their first child, Nelson. [3] Born in the spring of 1877, it must have been a pleasure to see him blossom as the Virginia bluebells announced the change in weather. Gertrude came next, but was born in the bitter cold of winter four years later.[4] John joined the family a mere year later, another spring baby. [5] Over the next eight years they added three more to the loving family: Zelia,[6] Annie,[7][8] and Samuel. [9] In July of 1891 little Nannie Belle[10] became the last addition to the growing family. I imagine Henrietta stayed quite busy taking care of her home, and the seven children that she had been gifted with.

Virginia in the Fall

Henrietta passed away on October 2nd 1925, at the age of seventy-two.[11] She was put to rest at the Green Hill Cemetery in Buena Vista, Virginia. Predeceased by her husband Samuel, she left behind seven children and many memories. What a wonderfully full life she had led.
