††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †† Watson   English, Scottish
A patronymic form of the English and Scottish name Watt, which came from the extremely popular Middle English given name Wat or Watt, which was a pet

††††† form of the name Walter. The surname Watson thus means "son of Watt".

††††

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Much of the information I gathered on the Watson family came from census and cemetery records for Upper Musquodoboit and Colchester County. I also had help††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††† from Jane Currie Wile who has a huge database connected toThe Colchester Historical Society http://genealogynet.com/resident/genejane/home.htm I also gathered

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† much information on Deliaís family from Mae Archibald McBeth whom she had help straightening out from Earl Taylor.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† The picture of Delia and the headstone pictures came from Earl Taylor via Mae.

 

 

 

 

 

1.          Watson.I suspect the family came from Scotland, settled in Upper Musquodoboit NS. It is a total assumption on my part that John Watson b1888 and George Watson b 1891 were brothers

and that Agnes was theirsister, they may be unrelated. The information I have put together came from census records for Upper Musquodoboit yrs 1861,1871,1881,1891,1901.

Also Colchester County Census records, marriage records, birth records. Hillcrest cemetery records and genejane Website.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† 1891 census. Jessie at age 21 appears to be staying with Emily's father (Jessie's Grandparents) George in Brookfield in 1891. Jessieís brother George E. age 20 appears to be living on his own in 1891

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Upper Musquodoboit census. I had no facts on Robert or Emily however after speaking to Mae Archibald Mc Beth I was able to find out about their deaths. Mae remembered Robert was referred

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† to as ďBuggering BobĒ by Aunt Grace. Robert left his family and moved to BC Canada. I have not found a date of death yet.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† (Note: If the information I have put together is correct, Robert and his wife Emilyís father were 1st cousins making him and Emily 1st cousins once removed)
