Researching my grandfather's family in what is now Chesterfield Co., SC.
My grandfather Robert Lee Watts (1893-1990) married
Cornelia Alice HAMILTON (d/0 William Alexander "Billy" HAMILTON and
Louisa Flora BIVENS.of Union Co, NC and moved to Charleston, SC to look
for work during the Depression.  That is why I don't know a great deal
about his family.

Here's what I know:
Papa was born to Townley B. WATTS (ca 1862-1962) and Henny "Babe" EVANS
He had an older sister called Mayme.  Henny died of childbirth
complications and Papa was raised my his maternal grandparents Queen P.
and Henry H. EVANS.
(I'm interestd in finding out about them, also.)

Townley remarried and had about 10 more children. One of his sons from
the second marriage was called Lec or Lex. (Alexander?) Don't know other
names. Townley was a very broadshouldered man who had lots of white hair
in his old age. He ran a country store and went to work every day until
shortly before his death. He lived to be 100 years old.

Townley's father was Thomas WATTS. His siblings were Gary, Douglas,
Rhone, Mollie, and Annie.  

I do not know when they settled in the area or if they all stayed. There
were some WATTS in NC in the mid 1800's, but I am not aware of a
connection. This isn't very much to go on, but perhaps someone will
recognize some of these names and help me out.

Thanks.  chp
