Joseph (Joey) Watt notes:
I am a Watt researcher. I have an issue with a Thomas Watt circa 1780. Born in America. Married a Margaret Wilson born circa 1780 who is said to be from Ireland. I think it is more likely Scotland. No one can produce any evidence to prove the origin.
Do you know of any Watt/Wilson researchers that would be looking for similar information?
I know it is a long shot but any information at this point would be more than I have now.
Any help would be much appreciated,
