Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1739
Death: Jan. 15, 1815
Watsontown
Northumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA

The idea of locating a town near the month of Warrior run first occurred to John Watson, who laid it out in 1794, and in honor of whom it received its name. John was the original purchaser of the site, May 13, 1792.

John and Mary were buried in the Old Warrior Run Presbyterian Graveyard (where the Memorial Park is located today) and their remains were later removed to the new Watsontown Cemetery. Among the first transfers from the old burying ground were the remains of the Watson family.
