JAN 19, 1772 Date of birth at Watkins Ferry, Frederick County, Va. (now Berkley Co., West Virginia). Date based on gravestone in Dover Cemetery, Lewis County, Mo. Location based on home of parents, and confirmed by 1880 Lewis County, Mo. Census for son Abel Reuben and 1910 Lewis County, Mo. Census for daughter Eliza F, both showing "VA" as "place of birth of father". Identified as son of Evan and Prudence by listing as brother of Stephen on 1863 settlement of Stephen's estate.

Records show that in 1755 George Washington, General Braddock and Daniel Boone crossed Watkins Ferry on the way to the battle of Fort Duquesne.

On 28 April 1815 John's Niece, Sophia Watkins daughter of Evans Watkins Jr. (records show him as a twin to John) and Sophia Wade married Lemuel Thompson, son of William Thompson and Reuhemah Boone. Reuhemah was the daughter of Josiah Noah Boone I and Hannah Hinton, making this the first Watkins and Boone Family Connection.

On 16 Mar 1834 John and Rachel's son, John Watkins married Elizabeth Karn, daughter of Christopher Karn and Leah Boone. Leah was the daughter of Josiah Noah Boone II and Hannah Ann Hite. The second Watkins and Boone Family connection

On 3 Sep 1856 Christopher Columbus Watkins, son of John and Elizabeth, married his 2nd cousin Rachel Whittaker Bristow, granddaughter of James and Hannah Ann Boone Barnhill, Leah's sister and brother-in-law. This made the descendants of these two double Boone Family Descendants.

All the descendants of these marriages hold the designation of 1st cousin to Daniel Boone, double in the case of the third marriage, only adding another times removed for each generation.
