Birth: 1764
Rockingham County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: Nov. 2, 1822
Merrimack County
New Hampshire, USA

David Watson was the son of Winthrop and Abigail Watson of Exeter, New Hampshire, and the grandson of David and Mary (Dudley) Watson of Dover, NH. He married (intention in Exeter, NH 21 Jun 1795) Elizabeth HOOK, the daughter of of Francis Hook and Mary Rand of Chichester, NH. David was living with family in Newmarket, NH as early as 1796 when his son Francis was born. He is enumerated there on the 1800 federal census, though the ages of his children on the census are incorrect from what we know of the family. He was living in Levin, Strafford Co., NH on 7 Mar 1806 when he and wife Betsey signed a deed to Dudley Watson of Newmarket, likely David's brother.

David's wife, Elizabeth Watson, was called of Chichester on 9 Mar 1808 when she was deeded property by her parents and of the same place on 15 Apr 1815 when she deeded property to her son Francis. David and his oldest son Francis were mentioned in the will of David's sister Mary in 1813. David's sons, Francis H. and Daniel Watson, signed the bond of administration on the estate of David Watson, late of Chichester, on 10 Jan 1823. The inventory, made 19 Mar 1823, amounted to $70.94. The tombstone death year of 1823 is incorrect for David; he died in November 1822 based on a family record, and this is supported by the dates of the administration of his estate.

Children, not linked below:

* Daniel, b. Lee, NH 1802, m. Ann _______, b. c. 1810. Daniel lived in Chichester until at least 1829, after which he was living in Eastport, Maine. He was living in 1837, but in 1840 his wife was enumerated on the census in Eastport with what appear to be five children.

* Mary, b. Lee, NH c. 1805, d. after 1860 census, and m. Hooksett NH 8 Feb 1829, [Thomas?] Jefferson DAVIS, b. c. 1805, apparently dead by 1850. In 1830 Jefferson Davis was in Pembroke, NH with family, and in 1840 he was in Goffstown, NH with family. In 1850 and 1860 Mary was enumerated in Hooksett, NH. They had four known children.
