a. Note:   WATSON, Thomas J. was born 1 Jan 1818 near Richmond VA. His father, Josiah Watson, born near close of last century (1790s (?) in Va. and was of Scotch-Irish extraction. He (Josiah) was a soldier in the War of 1812 and was in the famous Battle of New Orleans. In 1814 he married Miss Martha McCormac, a native of Va., and of Irish descent. (Comment: This would eliminate Jefferson as being a son of this union, because Jefferson was born in 1811.) To this union 12 children were born, of whom our subject is the 2nd. When Thomas J. Watson was a small boy his parents moved to Montgomery County., Tn. and in a short time moved from there to Marion Co., Il. leaving our subject and a brother and sister here. The father of our subject died just before close of the late war (the book was published in 1886 - so this would refer to the Civil War, surely.) and his mother is still living, at the advanced age of 91 years. Her eyesight is so good that she does not use spectacles and she now has her 3rd set of teeth. Our subject was educated at county schools and before becoming of age he learned th cooper's trade, which business he followed for some time. He then purchased the farm where he has ever since resided. On January 15, l845 he married Miss Elizabeth Ann Rudolph (in Montgomery County) a native of this county, and a daughter of Jacob and Martha Rudolph. They had the following children: Gustavus E., Thaddeus N., Ella W., Benjamin T., William R., John M., Margaret W., and Wallace W. Mr. Watson owns a very good farm, and until recently he had an interest in the Cumberland Flouring Mills. Our subject is a democrat, and a member of the Fredonia Lodge of F. and A. M. He and family are members of Cumberland Presbyterian Church and one son is a minister of the gospel. End of quote.
