Their names were Jefferson, Joseph, Josiah, and Foster. Josiah's household is 229, Foster and Jefferson are both ion household 266, and Joseph is in household 264. This suggests, but does not prove that Foster, Jefferson, and Joseph are related to one another and not to Josiah. "An Enumeration of free white male persons in the county of Montgomery, (TN) . . . 1841" Watson, Josiah 104 Watson, Thomas 105 Watson, Taitton 106 1850 Federal Census for Montgomery County, TN - Watson, Josiah 58, Farmer VA Martha 54, Va James 23, Va Martha 20, Va Nancy 17, VA Susan 12, VA George 12, VA Sarah 7, Va, Mt-772-373. From biography of Thomas J. Watson, son of Josiah: Josiah Watson, born near close of last century 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. To this union 12 children were born, of whom our subject (Thomas J. Watson) 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 (Civil) war and his mother is still living (in 1886 at time of publication of biography), 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. Josiah Watson is probably the Jos. Watson Jr. in the following deed: 1805 - From Montgomery Co.
