Lillian Snavely Watson
Lizzie or Lillian as she was called, was the sixth child of Henry Hess Snavely and Rebecca Z Landis Snavely. She was only 4 years old when her father died from a farming accident. He fell from the family barn hayloft and died instantly. Henry, even in death was able to provide for Lizzie's future. She had a small inheritance. She was able to get her conservative Pennsylvania Dutch, Mennonite mother (who never remarried), to let her go to Art School in Chicago. The local paper, the Sterling Daily Gazette, gave her high praise when she went to Chicago in October of 1886: "Miss Lizzie Snavely went to Chicago on Monday, to take a course of study in painting under Prof. Baumguard in the Lakeside building. Miss Lizzie is a natural artist, and the work she has already done in china and canvas give promise of eminence in her chosen profession." Lizzie was 19 years old. The Sterling Gazette was one of those local papers that gave "mini editorials" about the local families. Praise from the paper, was a vote of trust and confidence by all who read its pages. The paper also gave out 1880's version of "facebook" like news. The paper wrote about who had a dinner party, who was there, what gifts or prizes were given out and to whom. Who was on vacation, and where. Who was in town visiting and to whom. In 1890 Sterling, Illinois had about 5,800 people, and the paper shared information like it was one big family. Lizzie became infamous through this reporting. It all started with this vocation at Art School. She left for school in October of 1886. By January 1887 she had fallen in love. She came home in January 26, 1887 with hopes to convince her mother to let her and her new man, Charles L Watson, was charismatic, and worldly in the eyes of 19 year old Lizzie. Charles was born in New York. He told wild tails to the paper about being an English M.D.- a surgeon in the British army for 8 years; he claimed to have valuable medals that he won in the service in Soudan, Egypt, the Zulu war in the bombardment of Alexandria, , Cario, India and South America. He also asserted that he studied at Cambridge, England. The paper thought he was 31 years old in 1887, he was really 22. Mom, Rebecca L Snavely, forbade Lizzie from seeing this man any further. Rebecca did not know enough about this Charles Watson: Who were his parents? where did he come from? What kind of work did he do? Who were his friends? . . Rebecca was just trying to protect Lizzie. Lizzie was nieve, she had a small inheritance, but in the eyes of someone wishing to cash in on Lizzies' inexperience and her money! Rebecca dared not think on it. Lizzie would just have to wait till this unknown "man" could be looked into. Lizzie came home again to Sterling, IL from art school, in March of 1887 under the "ruse" of going to a family event. She stepped away from the family, long enough to meet up with Charles. Lizzie and Charles were married in Sterling, by Rev. N. H. G. Fife, on the 10th of March 1887. Lizzie then went back to home, to the family festivities, never telling of her elopement. Later the next morning, Lizzie and Charles left on the train together a newly married couple. When did Mom (Rebecca) learned of the secret marriage? by the 12th of March. Shortly there after Rebecca then discovered that Lizzie has removed all of her money from her bank account (either $2,064 or $3,064, depending on which paper reported it. This would be $66,610 or $98,890 today.) Although the telephone was invented in 1876, household phones were typically "party lines" (a phone shared with 2 or more neighbors). There were no cell phones in 1887. No one had a "personal phone number". In addition to the party line phone, there were letters, and telegraphs. Mom starts trying to get a hold of Lizzie, using all the tools available to her in 1887. She writes, she calls the school, . . . When Lizzie does not does not hear from her, Mom thinks the worst. On the 18th of March, Mom reads in the paper about a young girl who turned up dead in Rahway, New Jersey, wearing what sounded like Lizzie's clothes. Rebecca, and the rest of the family in Sterling start to panic. Mom hires the local attorneys J. W. Alexander and A. A. Wolfersperger, to do some detective work; find Lizzy! This is where the rest of country starts to take an interest in Lizzie and Charles Watson. Only five days into their marriage, Charles left Lizzie behind on the 18th of March to do some "business". Lizzie, truly alone for the first time in her life, no family, she had disobeyed her mother. She was alone, suddenly a little afraid she had made a mistake, her mind imagines all kinds of possibilities. . Lizzie was left behind with 2 associates of Charles; Mr. Bell and Robert Davidson. (It should be noted, that Robert was in love with Lizzie, and Charles and bad mouthed Robert to Lizzie. Charles wanted Lizzie all for himself!) With Charles gone, Robert, jealous of Charles and still wanting to get into Lizzie's good graces, he ceases on this opportunity. Robert tells Lizzie that Charles has 2 wives and children from those other marriages. Robert is able to convince Lizzie to leave with him. Robert convinces Lizzie that he can "prove" what he was telling her, he will show her these children, he will show her these other wives! Lizzie leaves with Bell and Davidson on March 28. Mom's attorney is a few days behind when he arrives in Chicago. Charles has been found and arrested for the Rahway murder, and is in possession of some of Lizzie's jewelry and money. Charles is also in trouble for 6 aliases and forging bank notes! Shortly thereafter, it is discovered that Lizzie was not the girl from Rahway, but in fact was now on her way to Omaha, NE. This is the information on 5 April 1887 that Mr Wolfsberger telegrams Rebecca Snavely. In reply, Rebecca instructs Mr Wolfsberger, "Bring her back at all cost." Wolfsberger heads to Omaha, NE. Wolfsperger, and the world follow Lizzie's run across the united States. The papers that picked up the story were from, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Minnesota, Colorado, DC, California, Illinois, Nebraska, and Indian. They all report about the runaway girl from Sterling Illinois. Mr. Wolfsperger, hot on Lizzie's trail, followed Lizzie to Omaha, then Colorado and finally is catches up with Lizzie in Portland, Oregon. It is here in Portland where Mr. Wolfsperger is able to convince Lizzie to come back home with him, her mother (Rebecca) is not mad, she loves Lizzie, and just wants her home safe. This is only the 17th of April 1887 when Lizzie is brought back to Sterling, Illinois, just 49 days into her marriage, only a month and a half has passed! Yet, much had changed. What about Charles Watson? On 7th of May, he could be found in Chicago, IL, in jail. On the 26th April Charles had sought out Robert Davidson with an intent to shoot Robert for taking off with his wife! Charles was apprehended by the police before he could do any harm and put in jail. I had expected that I would find Lizzie divorced or her marriage annulled from Charles and a spinster somewhere a few year later. An that would have been enough story for one Lizzie Snavely . . . but no, in August of 1887 and Indiana reporter wrote a follow up story with some truth and some fabrication that Charles went back to Sterling, looking for his Lillian (Lizzie). The reporter said that Charles came up to the Snavely "mansion", and advised a "servant" that he was looking for Lizzie. (There is no mansion, nor did the Snavely's have servants) that Charles was thrown out by Rebecca, and took off for Dixon, where the "servant" said Lizzie was. Supposedly Charles was in a race at this point to get to Lizzie before the family, and Charles found Lizzie in Dixon swinging in a hammock. Where Charles told Lizzie to come away with him before the family caught up, which she did supposedly. Lillian and Charles can be found in the paper in Sterling one more time in 1889. That is the last time they are mentioned together there. She does not divorce him. He continues to have grand ideas, and spends money he does not have. She is in New York by 1900. Charles ends up in an insane asylum in Chicago, and dies in 1913. (Charles was with Lizzie initially, in New York) Lizzie, lives out much of her life in New York, as a dressmaker in Manhattan, NY. Lizzie's wild and dramatic youth, ends quietly she died in 1921. She had no children who lived to adulthood. Just this crazy romantic story, that the world was privy to in 1887. Supposedly there is a photo out there of Lizzie, Charles and Davidson, that would be a very cool find. The love triangle of 1887. There is also a couple of hand painted jugs she gave as a gift to Mr and Mrs Silas Davis and Lizzie Dillon July 1887. That would be something to see!!

William R. Watson, a farmer, married Mary E. Johnson,they were from Arkansas. William and Mary had 2 sons, John T. and James Franklin. What little records available state 4 chilren but no one in my family is aware of the other two. James Franklin and John were born near Blairsville, Clay County, Arkansas. Mary E. Watson died, (cause unknown) and William took James and John to Caddo Mills TX.(perhaps he remarried and 2 more children?). John was raised by the Johnson family. John married Carrie and they had a son Maurice. John was the pharmacist in Caddo Mills.
James Franklin, (my grandfather) was raised by the Farr or Pharr family in Caddo Mills or Greenville, Tx, in Hunt County. I have been able to trace John T. Watson but cannot find information on the Farr/Pharr family that raised James (Jim) Franklin Watson, it would have been in the late 1800's or early 1900's. I would appreciate any info. Thank you.
Confederate soldier in the Civil War.

First assignment: 3B Corporal, Company A, 8th Regiment, Georgia State Troops on November 17, 1861. He was mustered at Savannah, GA in May 1862.

He enlisted as a Private in Infantry Battalion, Company E, 65th Regiment, Georgia Infantry in March 1863.

Interesting story (unconfirmed): On June 12, 1863, Thomas Watson, Benjamin Allison, and John Young deserted at Kingstons, TN. John Young, being a good swimmer, swam the Tennessee River; stole a paddle boat; then went back for Thomas and Benjamin. The three men hid from their unit until nightfall, when they began walking. Once far enough away from their unit, they also walked during the day. When he got home to Fannin County, Thomas slept in a hollow log near his home. His wife, Elizabeth, would sneak food to him. Later, he walked through the mountains to Athens, Tennessee, and joined the Union Army for 1 year.

His Union Army assignment: Company E, 7th Regiment, Tennessee Mounted Infantry. Thomas was honorably discharged July 27, 1865 at Nashville, TN.

He lived to age 74.

The Watsons moved to Fannin County, GA from Cisco, Murray County. Cisco was in the mountains, somewhere between Chatsworth and Fannin. Thomas' mother, "Fannie", and one daughter are buried near Cisco.

Thomas settled at the foot of Watson Mountain, which was named for him. His brother, Rufus, settled at the foot of another mountain nearby... near Dyer Gap. Landmarks: Hipps Chapel, Higden Store, and the Upper and Lower Jack River.

When Thomas' father, George, died, he was to be buried at Cisco. However, the weather and road conditions were so bad at the time that they could not transport him there. He was buried at Hipps Chapel Cemetery, instead. Many Watsons are buried there.

Thomas's parents:
George William Watson and Francis "Fanny" Gribble
