On the 1900 census Sallie lists 4 living children. One would be the Wamel son, one is Perry living next door, and you mentioned a daughter Mary F. Where or who is the 4th child? Maybe this 1880 census Trent, Todd Co, KY, explains 4th child:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

S. A. WATT Self D Female W 32 KY Farmer VA VA
Thos. Z. WATT Son S Male W 13 KY Works On Farm KY KY
W. P. WATT Son S Male W 12 KY Works On Farm KY KY
M. F. WATT Dau S Female W 8 KY KY KY

Note, S.A. is divorced, and it looks like Thomas Z. stayed in KY. There is one on the 1900 census Christian Co, KY with wife and children.

Watts, William, 32, b KY
" Sarah, 24, b KY
