Percy was the oldest of three children born to Stephen D. Watson and Florence G. Halstead. He came to Florida in 1912 and was a civil engineer working at the Everglades National Park for a while. He was married on 30 July 1920 to Ruby M. FRANCIS. In 1918 he was with the engineering firm of Bailey, Bliss, & Watson, but by 1923 was with Watson & Carpis, Civil and Consulting Engineers. By 1928 he was involved in the real estate business, and joined with his brother Moses to form Watson Real Estate, with office located at 6944 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. He may have served on the City Council and may have been somewhat active in politics. According to his obituary, he was a member of the Mahi Shrine, the Shrine Legion of Honor, the Mahi Patrol, and the Jesters Court, and a Masonic service would be conducted by Philbrick-Vickers Funeral Home.

Percy and Ruby had two children, born in Florida:

*William W., b. 1927
*Mary C., b. 1931

Percy's remains were cremated, and then interred next to his wife's.
