       There is some question as to the date and place of birth of this William M. Watson.  Age 45 given at time of 1860 Census would put birth in about 1815, while age given for the 1870 and 1880 Census would put birth ca 1819.  Age 53 given at time of his second marriage, in Sep 1871, would put birth ca 1818.  Age 72 given at the time of his death in Feb 1890 would put birth ca 1817 or 1818.  His place of birth is given as Harrison County in the record of his second marriage, but as Mercer County in his death record.  Harrison County would seem more likely.

      

       1850 Census, Doddridge Co, Virginia (now West Virginia), enumeratd on Jul 23 1850:

       William Watson, 31, farmer; Nancy, 30; Malinda, 8; Sarah, 6; Juliet, 4; Martha, 1; Mary, 1.

       (Note:  The adjoining household reported was that of John G. Hart & his wife Malinda Ann Nutter, sister of William's wife Nancy.  Ninety-six years later, in August 1946, William & Nancy Watson's great-grandson, Armand Leon Brown, married Geneva Pauline Gaston, the great-granddaughter of John & Malinda Hart.)

      

       1860 Census, Doddridge Co, Virginia (now West Virginia):

       William Watson, 45, farmer; Nancy, 40; M. A. (female), 18; S. (female), 16; J. (female), 14; Martha, 11; Mary, 11; Jane, 9; Loyd, 8; Marion, 2.

       William Watson, 51, farmer; Nancy J, 18; William L, 15; Francis M, 12; Amanda V, 9; William E. Crichfield, 5.

       (Note:  William E. Critchfield was the grandson of William & Nancy Nutter Watson.  His father, William E. Critchfield, died in the Civil War a month before he was born, and his mother, Malinda Ann Watson Critchfield, remarried John William Wyatt in Pennsylvania two years later.)

      

       1880 Census, Roane Co, WV (Spencer District), enumerated in June 1880:

       William Watson, 61, farmer; wife Ellen J, 50; dau Amanda V, 19; granddau Eva I (?), 7.

      

       He married[47],[48] (1) Oct-22-1840 in Harrison Co, (W)VA,[49] Nancy Nutter, b. Feb-22-1818 in Barbour Co, (W)VA,18 [Don Norman reports birth date as 1820.] (daughter of Andrew Nutter and Malinda Willis), d. Jun-29-1869 in Doddridge Co, WV,[50],[51],[52] census 1850, 1860 in Doddridge Co, (W)VA.

      

       Nancy: Some researchers report the parents of Nancy Nutter, the wife of William Watson, as James Nutter (1773-1833) and Julia Ann Davisson (1775-1826), a relationship that is at variance with substantiated facts about her.  Nancy Nutter Watson's death record in Doddridge County states that she was born in Barbour Co, (W)VA, the daughter of "A. Nutter."  While Barbour County is inconsistent with the reported birthplaces (Harrison and Doddridge Counties) of her siblings and may be incorrect, we do know that her husband William Watson's family had resided for some time in Barbour County, and that her two oldest children were also born in Barbour County.  As far as can be determined, James Nutter and Julia Ann Davisson spent their entire lives in Harrison County and had no known Barbour County connections.

      

       Adding to the confusion is the Nutter genealogy compiled by Donald Norman, based on Barr Wilson's work, listing among the children of James Nutter & Julia Ann Davisson, and also among the children of Andrew Nutter & Malinda Willis, a daughter named Nancy who married a William Watson.  That there would be two Nancy Nutters who married two William Watsons in that region and time frame seems very unlikely.  However, we do know that a Nancy Nutter married a William Watson in Harrison County on Oct 22 1840 (or possibly Mar 4 1841, based on interpretation of the handwritten marriage record; a Marriage Bond was executed in Harrison County on Sep 1 1840 by Nancy Nutter's parents, Anda (sic) & Malinda Nutter, and also signed by her brother Willis Nutter and by Otha G. Watson, half-brother of William M. Watson).  There is nothing in the marriage record itself (MR Bk 3, p. 145) reflecting the parentage or exact identity of either person, leaving open the possibility that it was a different Nancy Nutter, a different William Watson, or both.  But the family members mentioned in the marriage bond should dispel any doubt.

      

       No other marriage record for William or Nancy was found in Harrison, Doddridge or Barbour Counties.  Given all the evidence and circumstances, we conclude that it was this Nancy Nutter, daughter of Andrew Nutter & Malinda Willis, who married William Watson.

      

       He married (2) Sep-25-1871 in Doddridge Co, WV,[53] Ellen Jane Stinespring, also known as Ella J. Stinespring,[54] b. May-31-1830 in Harrison Co, (W)VA,42,[55],[56],[57] (daughter of John A. Stinespring and Mary ___), d. Aug-14-1914 in Auburn, Ritchie Co, WV,[58],57 buried in Mt. Union Cemetery, Straight Fork, Doddridge Co, WV,43 census 1900 in Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV, census 1880 in Roane Co, WV.

      

       Ellen: 1900 Census of Doddridge County (Southwest District) shows Ellen J. Watson as a member of her son John Ervin Leggett's household, along with his wife and seven children.  She was listed as a widow, age 70, born May 1830, mother of 10 children, of which 2 were still living.

                                      How is Brown's health?  Is he as fat as ever?  Tell him I am as I ever was, that Army life hasn't learnt me any bad habits yet and I expect to be the same as long as I live.  Tell him hello for me and I hope to see him in the near future.

54.    Nancy Lou "Babe" Haught (22.Mary5, 6.William4, 3.Jacob3, 2.William2, 1.David1), b. Jan-19-1884 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[394] d. Sep-23-1977 in Coshocton, Coshocton Co, OH,157,197 buried in Lake Park Cemetery, Youngstown, OH,[395] resided (nursing home) in Coshocton, Coshocton Co, OH,157,[396] resided formerly in Youngstown, Mahoning Co, OH,157,197 resided originally in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV.157

        

         Nancy was always sensitive about her age, and no one in the family was ever sure exactly when she was born.  The official Jan 19 1884 birth date was provided at the time of the delayed recording of her birth record in 1944 and was based principally on the testimony of her sister Rosa.  Age 23 given at time of Dec 1910 marriage would put birth date in 1887, as would age 43 in the 1930 Census.  The SSDI reports her birth date as Jan 19 1885, while her headstone shows her birth date as Jan 19 1889, also incorrect.  A birth date of Jan 1882 was given in the 1900 Census, correctly placing her between older sister Icy Dell (listed as b. Jul 1880) and younger brother John Homer (b. Nov 1883).  An analysis of the 1900 Census data for that household leads to the conclusion that Nancy and siblings Elizabeth, Icy & Homer seem to have shifted their birthdates in later years to make themselves appear a few years younger than they were.  In Nancy's case, the shift seems to have occurred at about the time of the 1910 Census (when she was listed as being only 4 years older than in the 1900 Census), as her given age stayed fairly consistent after that.  In the end, although we list her birth date as January 1884 to conform with her official birth record,  the likelihood is that she was actually born in January 1882 as indicated in the 1900 Census.

        

          She married (2) Dec-20-1910 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[397],[398] Addison Avery Brown, b. Aug- 1-1881 in Verndale, Wadena Co, MN,[399] (son of Ammi Almanzia Brown and Almira Sanders), d. Jan-13-1954 in Youngstown, Mahoning Co, OH, buried in Lake Park Cemetery, Youngstown, OH,[400] resided in Youngstown, Mahoning Co, OH,157 resided 1910 - 1943 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,157,374,107 resided 1893 - 1910 in Chehalis County (now Grays Harbor Co), WA,[401],399 resided originally in Verndale, Wadena Co, MN, census 1910 in Montesano, Chehalis (now Grays Harbor) Co, WA, census 1900 in Satsop, Chehalis (now Grays Harbor) Co, WA, census 1885 in Aldrich Twp, Wadena Co, MN, occupation glass-blower (in WV) and steel mill worker (in OH).157

        

         Addison: Born in Minnesota in 1881, Addison Brown moved from there to the state of  Washington with his father in June 1893.  Federal Census data of Jun 5 1900 identifies Addison Y. [sic] Brown, age 19, residing in Satsop, Chehalis County (now known as Grays Harbor County), Washington as a servant and farm laborer in the household of Edward F. Foster, b. Aug 1862 in Idaho.  Addison's birthdate was given as Aug 1880 [sic], birthplace Minnesota, father's birthplace Massachusetts, mother's birthplace New York.  Edward Foster's wife Mary was shown as born in Apr 1864 in West Virginia.  The Fosters' neighbors were the family of Jasper and Virginia Mowry; they and the oldest five of their seven children were born in West Virginia, the younger two born in Washington.  We can only speculate that it was through the Fosters and/or the Mowrys that Addison was somehow introduced to Nancy "Babe" Haught and eventually came to West Virginia.  This is supported by the fact that Jasper Mowry appeared in the 1870 Census of Doddridge County (New Milton Twp) as the 9-year-old son of George & Mary Mowry, and that Jasper N. Mowry & Jennie (nickname for Virginia) Knight were married in Doddridge County on Mar 10 1856.

        

         Census data of April 19 1910 states that he was a 28-year-old laborer living in Montesano Precinct, County of Chehalis (now Grays Harbor County), Washington, with place of birth as Minnesota in 1881, residing as a "hired man" in the household of John C. Smith (age 52, born in Wisconsin) and his wife of 27 years, Jennie C. (age 47, born in West Virginia), and their children.  Addison must have come to West Virginia soon thereafter, as he and Nancy "Babe" Haught were married Dec 20 1910 in West Union, and daughter Waneta was born Oct 23, 1911.  Connection, if any, between that J.C. Smith and the J.C. Smith who operated a funeral home in West Union, is unknown.

        

         1920 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (West Union District), enumerated on Jan 3 1920 at 111 Wabash Avenue:

         A. A. Brown, 38, b. Minnesota, both parents b. Minnesota, occupation truck-dray driver; wife Babe Brown, 33; step-dau Clella Haught, 15; dau Jaunita Brown, 8; son Vernon A. Brown, 2 months.

         Stated birthplace of Addison's parents is clearly in error.

        

         1930 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (West Union District), enumerated on Apr 14 1930:

         Addison A. Brown, 47, b. Minnesota, both parents b. Minnesota, occupation salesman at feed store, age 26 at first marriage; wife Babe, 43, age 22 at first marriage, b. WV, father b. Pa., mother b. WV; dau Mabel W, 18; son Vernon A, 10; son Armond L, 7.

         Again, the stated birthplace of Addison's parents is in error.  Daughter Mabel W. Brown was better known as Waneta Brown; with her name appearing as Juanita Brown, she had been enumerated a week earlier in Harrison County in the household of half-sister Clella and her husband Lawrence Ingram.

        

         In an affidavit dated Aug 21 1935 at Clarksburg WV, regarding establishment of Addison's birthdate, Addison stated that his family had moved to Montesano, Washington when he was about nine years old, that the family Bible had been destroyed in a house fire about three years later, that his mother had died when he was about six years old, that his father had died when he was about 18 years old, and that he had no living siblings.

        

         Addison always told his son Armand that his only living relative not descended from him was a cousin, Edith Maria Weeden, whose address was 10 Guernsey Street, Norwich (Chenango County), NY.  We have since determined that Edith Weeden was the wife of Archer Lewis Weeden (b. Mar 18 1870) (married May 20 1891) and was born Edith Maria Terwilliger in New York on Feb 13 1873, daughter of Andrew Jackson Terwilliger (1829-1904) and Mary Esther Sanders (1842-1919) (married Dec 12 1871).  Census data shows that Mary Esther Sanders was a sister of Almira Sanders, Addison's mother.  It was Edith Maria Weeden who in January 1943 provided an affidavit supporting the filing of Addison's delayed birth certificate in Verndale, Wadena County, Minnesota.

                                      Armand held several jobs as a youth, including doing custodial work at the West Union Post Office and pumping gas at the local filling station.  After his 1941 graduation from Doddridge County High School, he worked at the A&P grocery store at the end of Main Street near the court house.  He had a knack for working with fresh produce, much of which was displayed outside the store to attract customers.  One person it attracted was a pretty teenager who walked by every morning on her way to school.  Armand happened to be watching one day and saw her grab an apple and continue on her way.  He rushed out of the store and demanded that she either return the apple or pay for it.  We don't know what she ended up doing, because at this point in telling the story, Armand would always say "And that's how I met my wife.  I caught her stealing apples."  That teenage girl was Geneva Gaston, and they married a few years later.  Although it was never made clear in the telling of the story, there's little doubt that far from being an apple thief, Geneva was simply trying to get the attention of someone special.

                                     

                                      He married Aug-4-1946 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[419] Geneva Pauline Gaston, b.

                                      Geneva: Graduate of Doddridge County High School (1945) and attended Salem College, Salem, WV, 1945-46.  Worked for two years in the office of the Ford garage in West Union.  Upon her marriage to Armand Brown in 1946, she moved to Youngstown, Ohio, where Armand's family had moved from West Union while he was overseas during World War II.  From 1962 to 1974, she worked as cashier and office worker for A&P food stores in Youngstown and vicinity.  In June 1974, with Armand's heart problems preventing him from continuing his job with A&P in Youngstown, they returned to Doddridge County, moving into the house on Oxford Road, at Cabin Run, where Geneva had lived with her family for about five years prior to her marriage.  From then until his death in 1985, Armand and Geneva operated what had been her parents' small grocery store adjacent to the family home, changing the name from Gaston's Grocery to Brown's Grocery.  With her brother Sam, Geneva was a driving force and principal compiler of this genealogy.
