"Mary Watt was taken into the home of her father's brother and his mother and sister, James Watt the inventor of Edinburg, Scotland. She was educated in the fine arts of that day painting, needlework, etc. Two pieces of her needlework are in the possession of her descendants and in fine condition after a hundred and fifty years. One show map of Europe and the other Killarney Castle as it was in 1805. They have won numerous highest awards whenever exhibited. With reluctance she parted with her uncle's family when her own family embarked to America."
