The following information was provided by Vonnie L Cantrell:

Jane Watson was the daughter of William Watson and Mary Johnson.

Her father, William Watson, was born in 1791 and was the son of Adam and Catherine Hughes Watson. William Watson married Mary Johnson, daughter of Elijah and Margaret Hyde Johnson and had two children: William Monroe and Jane.

The senior William Watson died in 1818. In 1824, his widow married James Withrow and had several more children.

This information was clarified in the Civil War pension case of Louisa (Culberson) Collins, widow of William Watson Collins. William Watson Collins was the eldest son of Jane Watson and Adolphus Madison Collins and the eldest brother of James M Collins. William and James had seven other siblings. Some of the key information comes from a deposition by James Withrow (1825-1917), a half-brother of Jane Watson. He was deposed about 1916.
