No it is not "screwed up" you are not paying attention to details, are reading things too fast and forgeting previous information (or not having it in the first place) and not allowing for transcription mistakes. Genealogy is an adventure with many twists and turns and recording errors, lost records and leaps of faith.

This is a copy and paste from MIGenWeb page. It says Cloria, not Gloria-transcrition mistake of Clara, or could be her legal name but she went by Clara beacuse she got tired of being mistaken as Gloria, not Cloria.

"WATT,STEWART,JOSEPH A WATT,CLORIA - STEWART,BERRIEN,--,,20 AUG 1876,--,CTY REC# 0435,--"

Free to see at Ancestry and LDS FamilySearch website the 1880 census entry for Joseph A and Clara B Watt. I suggust you look at. You will find Joseph A Watt, as head of household, has a step-daughter named Margaret Stewart age 5 listed. Meaning Clara B.(nee)Wright was married to a man named Stewart before she married Watt and used her 1st married name on Watt marriage certificate since that was her legal name. Back then they were not so picky with required information. Or on actual certificate her maiden name is written.

This is a WWI message board. I suggest you move future postings to Wright, Stewart and Watt message boards, you just may find cousins.

Good Luck
