Lula Marguerite Daily Watkins
Hello Jim,

My name is Lisa (Watkins) Shorter and I am the great-granddaughter of Charles William Watkins. I was wondering if you have any information as to his wife Lula. One of my family members told me she was Cherokee indian. I only know where she was born and since both my grandparents and parents are no longer living I have no information.

Thanks so much!

Hello, Jim,

My great-grandfather was George Packard Brown, Jr. I remember he and my great-grandmother from our trips to West Fork, Arkansas, when I was a child.
Elvin Brown was the youngest of seven children of George P. Brown, Jr. and Mary C. Blosser Brown. I have other information if this is of interest to your wife.

Thanks for finding them. I have sent them to you. In the future just ask for a transfer. No need to send me all the info. That is time consuming for you. As long as someone wants to work on my memorials I don't care if or how they are related. To me that is what it is all about. I live real close to Hillgrove cemetery and have photographed all the old stones.

Find A Grave Memorial# 64946779
Hi Jim, I am a descendant of William Wadkins (sometimes spelled Watkins) from Find A Grave Memorial# 100837977. I have a strong hunch that my William's father - Stephen Wadkins/Watkins - was related somehow to Jonathan and Clarissa Clary Allen Watkins. I noticed that some of their children lived to Morgan County, Indiana, around the same time that Stephen would have lived there. Another reason for the hunch - I found many of the same surnames from my family in Mason County, Kentucky, mentioned along with Jonathan & Clary's family in historical books. My William (on the censuses) listed his father born in Indiana & sometimes in Ohio.

Some trees (on Ancestry.com) list a Stephen Watkins as one of Find A Grave Memorial# 64946779's children, but I do not see him listed as one of his children on the memorial. Perhaps Stephen wasn't Jonathan & Clary's son, but maybe a nephew.... Just wondering if you have any info on a Stephen Watkins born around 1820, related to that Watkins line. He married a woman named Rebecca. William lived in Morgan Co., Indiana, Jasper Co., Ill., Warren Co., Iowa, Jasper Co., Iowa, and died in Garland Co. Arkansas. He lived with a Dotson family for awhile. Any help would be appreciated.

Even if you can't help me with this, I just want to say thank you very very much for all the work you have so obviously put into the Watkins family for find a grave.

Hello again!
In the 1910 census for this couple it states they had 4 children only 2 on whom were living. Does anyone know anything about that 4th child? and does anyone know if their daughter, Mary H. ever married and to whom???

Thanks for your help! Kathy

John C. Watkins, 1826-1892
Hello!
My name is Kathy Martin and I am researching my husband's famiy. He descends directly from William Watkins and Rachel Mullens.

I am challenged with the family of Jeremiah Allen Watkins & his three wives. Currently am stuck on the children of his first wife, Susan W. Miles. According to the Find A Grave site, they had 4 children, John C. Watkins, Joseph Watkins, Matilda J. Watkins and Elizabeth Watkins. There is record on Find A Grave of John C. Watkins with 2 wives, Mary J. Hardock & Mary Jane Moyer. My problem is that there are other records which have John C. Watkins born and dying on the same day, 3 May 1826, and a 5th child for Jeremiah & Sarah by the name of Jonas Watkins, married to the two women we have record of marrying John C. I see the grave marker here and wonder how there could be such conflicing informtion. Can you enlighten me at all??? I would be grateful for any information you have. Thanks, Kathy

I am not related. The information I provided to you was was found while I was doing some "volunteer" research, or as I prefer to call it.. "random acts of genealogical kindness".
