Additional Information

William Henry Watson:

Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 2nd Great Grand Parent.;

!NOTES:William Henry Watson is a proven son of Joseph & Sarah as shown on his 1882 marriage record in Columbus Co., NC.
It seems likely he was named for his uncle William Henry Jenkins (c1840).;

!NOTES:William's T/S gives 1852-1902, but the death year isn't certain. This stone was placed a hundred years after his death by a descendant. If there was an original stone, it must have been removed, or eroded away.;

!CENSUS:1860 Onslow Co, NC Stump Sound, Golden Place PO # 68/68
Ann Jenkins, 50, F, Farmeress, $100/100 NC
Uzza, 22, M, Farm Laborer
Wm H. 20, M, " "
Milly A., 19, F
S. J. Watson, 30, F, Spinster
Wm H. 8, M;

!CENSUS:1870 x
no sign of him anywhere in eastern North Carolina or elsewhere in the US, and I've looked for him several times nationwide in this census.;

!CENSUS:1880 * New Hanover Co., NC Harnett Township # 69/70
John Bender 50 M Farmer NC-NC-NC
Mary J. 47 wife M Keeping House
Mary 21 dau S
Martha 20 dau S
William Watson 30 (NRS) Wd, Laborer.

* If the above is my William, then he had been married and widowed by 1880. No relationship was stated between him and the Bender family.
John Bender and family were in the same county and township back in 1870, the family consisting of John 40, Mary 30, Daniel (or David) 12, Mary 10 and Martha 8. I wasn't able to find the Benders in 1860. They were in the same county and township in 1900, John Bender July 1831, married (years not given), Mary J. wife Oct 1837, Mary E. Corbett gr-dau Feb 1890. By 1910 John was dead, Mary was still in same county, township, with gr-daughter Mary E. Pickett (wife of Isaac C.). Didn't find Mary J. in 1920, probably dead.
I wasn't able to find out much else about the Bender family, no marriage record or D/C, etc. I did find a D/C for Daniel Stephen Bender (c1858-1925) lists his father as John L. Bender, mother unknown. This is the same John Bender, but this doesn't help much.;
