There was a query on the Dodge CO page that was posted in October but I had my message returned. It was a reply to Mike Thomson query #196 regarding the surname Watt in Dodge CO. I will post the information below:
In answer to your query on the Dodge CO page, I have a William Watt born 1804 in Scotland. However I have his wife as Jane Hutchinson. His son Archibald was my great grandfather and he was married to Elizabeth Greaser. Archibald's siblings were John Watt; James Watt; William Watt born June 16, 1833 m. Mary Barnard; Isabel Elizabeth Watt; David Watt; Janet Watt; Jane Watt; Thomas Hutchinson Watt; and Samuel Watt who according to family tradition died as a child. I have been in contact with a Earl Watt who seems to have some similar information but have not fully sorted it out yet. My cousin is the one who has done the research on this line. I did obtain a marriage license of Archibald and "Lizzie" because of information that I found on the Internet and that event was in Dec. 1873. Archibald disappeared after a divorce. Do you think there is a connection?
