I have recently found new information on my ancestor, William Calvin WATKINS
(b. 1825) that makes me question who is parents are. It is believed that he
is the son of Judith DANIEL (b. 1800 VA, daughter of James DANIEL and Ann
VENABLE) and Joel Thomas WATKINS. According to a Chancery Court record of
Williamson Co., TN W. Calvin WATKINS sued the estate of Samuel BRIDGES. In
this document it is stated that Samuels's wife Milly BRIGDES is the aunt of
William Calvin WATKINS. William took in and cared for his Aunt Milly
because she was old and basically not in her right mind. Therefore, William
was suing the estate of his uncle for compensation for his care of Milly.
William's testimony is very specific, and states that Milly is his mother's
sister. So, my question is this, where does Milly fit in. The information
I have seen so far, Judith does not have a sister Milly (or similar name).
Can anybody shed light on this?
