    • According to a Conveyance Record CBK G P. 523, Elizabeth Watkins states that she and her husband came to Sabine County, Texas in 1825. This is dated January 15, 1878. In 1840, Green B. Watkins is listed in the 1840 Natchitoches Parish census with 6 female children and 3 male children.

      On page 87, Casagranda cites a record dated January 15, 1878 showing that "Mary A. Constable, Elizabeth, wife of John B. Carroll, Jane, wife of Nathan Cook, Matilda C. Flanakin and Susan Williams, all of Sabine Parish, Nancy Easley of Sabine County, Texas, and William W. Watkins of San Augustine County, Texas deeded Sabine Parish land to Daniel S. Watkins of Nacogdoches County, Texas, who is to take and support our sister, Amanda Watkins who is permanently diseased and helpless." All were heirs of G. B. and Elizabeth Watkins, deceased. (CBK J, P.258). This establishes who their children were.

      In December, 2010, Scott Watkins (firedogger@gmail.com) emailed that "The statement "6 female children and 3 male children" is true.  But on the 1840 census, Amanda hasn't been born yet.  She was born after the 1840 census in 1841.  By the next year, Green Berry and Elizabeth had 7 daughters and 3 sons.  The missing daughter is "Mary A." Constable listed above."
