Watkins-3073 and Watkins-1493 appear to represent the same person because: These two profiles are the same William Hesket II "Hart" Watkins b1831, father of William Hesket III "Bill" Watkins b1863, grandfather of Luther Watkins b1893

This is who you have as the father of Luther. It will take some doing to disconnect him as parent, but if you put me on your trusted list, I will be happy to muddle through it.

Hart is 32 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 24 degrees from Abraham Lincoln, 35 degrees from Ayn Rand, 29 degrees from Peter Roberts and 28 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
