Watson VA>IL>TX

I'm looking for information on the death and parents of David Watson Jr. Born May 1848 in VA (WVa). He was married in 1871 Brown County, IL to Martha AUSMUS. The couple had 2 children there Lucy and Ed before moving with much of Martha's family to Lamar County TX in 1875, where they had 1 more child. David died sometime between 1910 and 1920 probably in Lamar County near Direct, but there is a slight possibility he died in McCurtain or Choctaw counties in Oklahoma.

I have no info on David's parents other than there is a David Sr., and have been unable to locate David before his marriage to Martha in 1871. All the info I have for him comes from his connection to Martha and census records.

If anybody has any information on other Watsons who migrated from Virginia to Illinois I would be interested in that even if it doesn't directly pertain to my line.

I've been working on David for almost 6 years with no new info. I would love any new leads to chase down.
