Is the abandoned cabin fairly large, looks like two cabins built side by side and joined, and sits in a curve on a hill? If so, I believe there was a James Watson that lived there. Just down the hill is another farm. The cabin and the barn at the lower farm actually go together. The lower farm was owned by John F. Watson who lived in the white house on the hill. The other cabin that you mentioned I take is the smaller cabin near Jennings Creek. I have heard that the large white house between that cabin and Jennings Creek was built on the site of the "old Watson plantation". I am going to guess that this family was James F. and Cynthia Watson who apparently moved to Bedford County after 1850.
