Abraham Watts
Posted by: Mary Webster (ID *****9806) Date: July 25, 2003 at 19:03:53

In a box of old pictures she came upon a land grant for a Abraham Watts dtd. 10 Jan 1851 in Dixon, Ogle Co., IL and sold. Do not know if original land grant or not as yet. I asked her this question. What we can not understand is our line is TERRY and none from Illinois. The recorder of the general land office was a E. S. Terry (he signed this document), which we do not know who he is. Our line comes from South Carolina>GA>TX.

Who is this Abraham Watts? I found on Land Records that purchased 2 land grants on that date, listed as Abraham N. Watts. Where did this WATTS and/or TERRY come from? I have been unable to find them on a census.

Can anyone help?
