William Watson, b. 1805 NC, Nancy Ashly, b. 1823 SC

Ada, OK(Zone 7a)

I'm researching my ancestor, William Watson born around 1805 in Person Co., North Carolina. He married Nancy Ashly on 13 Dec 1836 in Person Co., NC. She was born around 1823 North (or South) Carolina.

I descend from their son George Washington Watson, born 04 Mar 1848 North Carolina, died 27 Jun 1921 in Lone Oak, Hunt Co., Texas. He married on Desdemona Yarbrough on 18 Mar 1867 in Person Co., NC. She was born 05 Dec 1848 in Oxford, Granville Co., NC and died 24 Mar 1924 in Lone Oak, Hunt Co., Texas.

William and Nancy Watson were in the 1850 Person Co., NC census:

Pg. 428, Roll #: M432 640

William Watson 44 (1806) Farmhand North Carolina
Nancy Watson 27 (1823) North Carolina

George Watson 8 (1842) North Carolina
John Watson 7 (1843) North Carolina
Henry Watson 4 (1846) North Carolina
Mary Watson 6/12 (June 1850) North Carolina

This is one of my "brick walls." Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
