I am trying to discover and document the Watts ancestors of Gerard Snowden WATTS (b. 1825 in Baltimore, MD—d. 1906 in Baltimore, MD). He married (23 May 1849) Ann Elizabeth WOLVINGTON (b. 1830 in Virginia or West Virginia—d. 1914). Both are buried in Loudon Park Cemetery in Baltimore, MD.
Online, undocumented sources say the parents of Gerard Snowden Watts were Alan WATTS and Ann Elizabeth (WASHINGTON) WATTS. However, the fifth volume of Tyler’s ENCYCLOPEDIA OF VIRGINIA BIOGRAPHY (1915), which is accessible online, says the parents of Gerard Snowden Watts were “Allen and Ann (Campbell) Watts.” Tyler says Allen Watts was “ of Tidewater, Virginia.”
I would appreciate any information, clues, or leads.
