Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 722, Indian Creek Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"JAMES D. WATTS was born in Cass County, Indiana, October 30, 1839, and is one of the nine children born to WILLIAM P. and ELIZABETH (DAILY) WATTS, natives of Indiana and Virginia. At the age of seventeen, WILLIAM P. WATTS accompanied his parents to Cass County, and at the age of eighteen was there married. After his father's death, he bought the home place, on which he still resides. His wife died September, 1875, a member of the Christian Church, of which sect MR. WATTS is also a member. JAMES D. WATTS, until twenty-two years of age, lived with his father; he then bought a forty-acre farm in Cass County, on which he resided three years; then sold out and bought another, and then in 1869, again sold out and came to this township, where he bought 120 acres, on which he now lives. He was married, March 2, 1862, to SARAH ROSS, a native of Brown County, Ohio. To this union there were born ten children, of whom seven are yet living. MRS. WATTS is a member of the Christian Church. In politics, MR. WATTS is a member of the National party."
