Title: Marriage records of Highland Co. Ohio, 1805-1880
Title: 1850 Fed Census Highland Co. Ohio
Note: Federal census did not match. It is my belief that the 1850 is theaccurate one because the children dates are more accurate. Further,Samuel lived with his daugher, Manerva, just before he died as wasdepicted in the 1880 census and this verified his birth as 1801in S.C.and his father being born in Ireland. The 1850 census says he was 49yrs. old which would verify his 1801 birthdate.
Note: There was confusion about the birthdate of Samuel. The 1860 and 1850
Note: In the 1860 census of Highland Co. Ohio there was this listing. WATTS, Samuel age 50, male, farmer V. 1850 census ofHighland Co. Ohio Nancy age 45, Ohio, female WATTS,Samuel age 49 James 23, male Nancy age 44 Norwood 18 male Manerva 17 female Mary 14 female Samuel 12 male Lewis 6 male Another source says there were eight children named Martha, Myra,Minerva, Dora, James, Thomas, Samuel, and Christopher.
Census reporting in the 1800's was not always accurate. Often timesnames were not correct and if they were not at home that day, theywerent counted. This information was gotten from researchers
