John C. Watts m. Priscilla C. Arey -1873
Posted by: John Watts Date: June 17, 2001 at 18:49:05
  of 981

My Great-Grandfather, John Craig Watts, immigrated to America from Scotland (where his surname was WATT), probably between 1840 & 1850. He eventually moved to NC, bought land there in 1868, and later married the widow Hartman (Priscilla Catherine Arey) in 1873. This was apparently the second marriage for both of them. My Grandfather, George W. Watts, farmed and operated the country store at Watts Cross Roads for many years, near the Boger Evangelical & Reformed Church.
