office he held till his death.
Mr. Watson was the proprietor of
"Clarks" Island in Plymouth Harbor,
where he resided for forty years; a
spot to which he was very much attached,
affording to him many antiquarian
associations, in which he delighted to
indulge, and to recount to his family
and friends.
