RE: Peter Shaver of WV
I will keep looking and let you know if I come up with anything. Yes, you are correct that if she had another son by another husband, the child would not be named Shaver. My thinking was the way people sometimes just put genealogy stuff together, IF that was the case, someone might not have known that the last child wasn't a Shaver. Maybe it was. Anyway, I will research it some more and see if I can unearth anything else. Thanks for your expertise.

Peter Shaver of WV
I have recently become interested in the story of the life of Peter Shaver and am trying to figure out if I am related to him. I don't understand the discrepancy in the date of his death. It is listed as 1781 on his tombstone, yet you mentioned that we know he died in 1791 as his wife was pregnant with their last child who was born in 1791. Makes good sense to me. Except I have read in several places that he was killed by Indians in the Tygarts Valley Indian Massacre which supposedly took place in 1781. How do we reconcile those two dates? Is the Indian Massacre date wrong, or was Peter not killed at that time? Or could his wife have remarried and been pregnant by a second husband? Or is the date for Francis, the last son, incorrect? Just curious.

Mary M. Watts # 53110231
Hello again Tom,

Very interesting......I am retired from the Army. I was on active duty from 1969 - 1993. Then I worked for awhile as a contractor for the Air Force in Germany.

You did such a good job adding the info to the memorial that you established for George H. Watts, I am going to ask you to some additional info for his wife, Mary M. Watts, buried also in Worton Union ME Church, Kent County, MD.

ADD: Born - Kent County, MD
Died - Baltimore City, MD

Cut and paste the following biographic info:

Mary M. Watts (maiden name unknown) married George H. Watts of Kent County, MD, about 1865. George and Mary Watts were enumerated in the 1880 federal census living in Charlestown, Kent County, MD, with the following children: Ella J., age 11; Alphonsa "Phonnie", age 7; George W., age 2. In the 1900 census, George and Mary Watts were living in Pomona, Kent County, MD. George was farming. In 1910 census, Mary Watts, age 70, is head of house and living in Chestertown, Kent County, MD. She reports that she is a widow. In 1920, Mary M. Watts, is enumerated with her daughter, Phonnie (Watts) Toulson, living on West Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD. Her daughter, Phonnie, is also a widow. Also, living in the household is Mary Watts (Toulson) Magee (McGee), widow of Leonard Erroll McGee.

Thanks again, Tom.
