Henry Watkins, son of Henry and Katherine was born around 1660. Both he and his father appear in Quaker records for Henrico County, Virginia, which noted that "Henry Watkins, overseer of Curles Meeting is deceased" February 7, 1715. Will records show that his wife Mary was named "to be Executrix" on a document dated November 15, 1714, and recorded February 7, 1715, which named his sons: John, Benjamin, Joseph, Henry & Stephen.
I asked Ellen Smith about it (who had added the category) and received a lengthy reply on my profile page. Bottom line - the category was added because one of the leads posted was from the Media Research Bureau. As the lead was just that - a lead and not a source - it was deleted. Problem solved :D
Considering all the different profiles, leads, and sources, I believe that this profile is as accurate as possible for the parents, birth, marriage, children, and death of this Henry Watkins. ~ Liz Shifflett
Carl Rhodes had wife as Mary Crews, married about 1680 in Henrico Co., VA
I'm not so certain about the siblings listed.

Henry Watkins, Jr. was born 1637/1638 in Charles City Co., VA. per the book, "Henry Watkins of Henrico Counry" compiled by Jane McMurtry Allen - 1985. There is a lot of confusion about Henry Watkins of Henrico Co., VA. I [author of the site] believe there were two or maybe three Henry Watkins of Henrico County born about the same time. Jane in her book has started with Henry Watkins, of South Wales. This Henry was first of the Eastern Shore, then settled in Charles City Co, VA
Ref: THE REGISTER OF THE KENTUCKY STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY; Frankfort, Kentucky, Vol 7, No. 21- 1909 states that the James Watkins that came with Capt John Smith had a son Henry; Henry I. His son, Henry II, had a son Henry Watkins III who married Mary Crisp. Henry III was a burgess and owned "Marbvern Hill" (Trabue Family).
Ref: OUR KIN by W.H. and Edna Anderson Manning states that there was a Thomas Watkins born 1600 emigrated to Virginia in 1635 on the ship "Constance" the Captain was Clement: married Faith. They had four sons: Richard born abt 1635 died 1681, Henry born 1637 moved to Henrico Co. in 1675 bought land, Turkey Island, had relationship to Senator Henry Clay (Great great grandson), William born abt 1639 died 1703, Thomas born abt 1645 died 1717. So it looks like I have three choices for a starting point.
↑ Curles Meeting Minutes in 1709 named Henry Watkins Jr. as overseer. This quote is from ENCYCLOPEDIA OF QUAKER GENEALOGY, 1750-1930; Vol VI, Henrico Monthly Meeting. The Curles Meeting minutes for "the 11th of the 12 mo 1714" (February 11, 1714/15) note the son's death. I think the date attributed to the Henrico Monthly Meeting (1714/15, 11, 7) was mistranscribed somewhere along the line.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Henry by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Henry:
