I am looking for the ancestry of John Watson, based on the census information his birthplace would be Rhode Island circa 1782. He lived in Brookfield, Madison co, NY from at least 1830 (when he appears on the census there) to his death sometime after 1860. He married Polly (1771- 7 May 1854) both are buried in Brookfield Rural Cemetery, although John's headstone is undated. In 1850 John and Polly were living together. On the 1855 New York Census John is living with his daughter Mercy and her husband John Marryott. In 1860 John was living with his son Caleb who is also buried in the same place.
There is a John Watson born 22 Jun 1782 in Exeter, Rhode Island son of Robert Watson and Rebecca Richmond. Robert's son Stephen and Stephen's son John removed to Greene, Chenango co, NY where they appear on the 1820 census Stephen's will dated 1828 granted his property to his son John.
Of the John Watsons I can locate in Rhode Island John son of Robert seems the most plausible but I still don't have a smoking gun document to confirm this.
George C. Davis' book The American family of John Watson of the Narragansett country, Rhode Island which I have been able to independently verify with vital and land records traces Robert Watson back to John Watson and Dorcas Gardiner of Kingston 1672 (Robert4, Samuel3, Samuel2, John1). Davis however has no record of a wife or children for John son of Robert only a brief mention of him in a few land deeds.
Does anyone have any information on this John Watson?
