Another source says there were eight children named Martha, Myra (Mary?), Minerva, Dora, James, Thomas, Samuel and Christopher (Lewis) There is a Microfilthe showing a Samuel and Nancy Watts Christening a Sarah Almira Watts on 9 Aug. 1835 .
Census reporting in the 1800's was never accurate. Often times the names were not correct and if they weren't always recorded if they weren't home. According to microfilm of Highland co. Ohio, Madision twsp. Samuel was 59 at this 1860 census and was born in So. Carolina. He lived with one of his daughters, Manerva, when he died. There was further evidence that a Dora Watts was married to Wm. Caldwell. Also a Martha Watts was married to a John Turner or Alex Rogers. There is evidence that Watts family migrated from So. Carolina because they were opposed to slavery and came north with the Quakers. Samuel is buried in Rocky Spring Cemetery, Madison Twshp.
