Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1765, Ireland
Death: Apr. 18, 1845
Greene County
Ohio, USA

Son of Hugh Watt Sr. (1723-1771) and Mary Black (1733-1774). Brother of Andrew, John, Margaret, Mary, and Hugh Ross Watt.

Married to Barbara Menown. Father of Barbara, Mary, Hugh, James, Andrew, Elizabeth, George Menown, Margaret and Jane, all born in Scotland.

In 1820, George, his wife and children, and his sister Mary left Scotland to join his brother Hugh in Greene County, Ohio. Upon arrival in Philadelphia, Georges's wife, Barbara, and sister, Mary, both fell ill and died. Both are presumably buried in Philadelphia. A 3rd female is said to have been with them and also died, but her identity is unknown.
Church Certificate from Ireland:
"I hereby certify that the bearer George Watt and his wife are sprung from sober, respectable and religious families - that they have in all respects supported an unblemished character, and that they are entitled to be received with Christian affection by any Congregation in America to which they may join themselves. He, his wife, and their daughter, Barbara, leave their native country in full communion with the Presbyterian Congregation Lissara distinguished by the name Seceders."
Signed by order of Session
JOSEPH LOWRY, Minister Congregation of Lissara County Down, Ireland
