Sheryl Stanfill Virginia, What make you think that this picture contains some Watson ancestors. Did not the Trail of Tears take place in the 1830's? And were they not (herded) from Georgia across to Oklahoma? I have a line of Watson's from Alabama, but have not connected to any in Georgia yet. Most of mine came up from Alabama into the Arkansas and MOSTLY Missouri areas and then into the Oklahoma Territories. I never heard of any participating in the Trail of Tears. I do however have a ggggrandfather James Crowley that DID participate in the Trail of Tears. Which this picture had some Crowleys in it. But since I have no pictures from that time, I could not tell you if any of the white men are a Watson, Crowley or whoever. I would like to make a copy of your picture so that I could pass it around the families and maybe one us will find something out.
