    Notes 
    • In December, 2010, Scott Watkins (firedogger@gmail.com) emailed that "Green Berry's younger brother Alfred L, only had two daughters and no sons.  The oldest daughter was Mary Ann, who married Amon P. Morris and her younger sister Drucilla Cordelia who married 1) White and 2)  Partin.  Both Mary Ann(s) are used back in forth between the family lines as well as William W. and Nancy. I started out to prove I was a descendant of Alfred L., only to find out I belong with Green Berry instead."

      The 1840 Natchitoches Parish census shows:
      J. B. Watkins     0111001000000     222001000000     1  3  1  
      A. L. Watkins     0000010000000     002001000000
      The J. is a G. (census writers?)  Both brothers are on the same page, just 10 lines apart.   J. B. has 4 males and 7 females.  A. L. has 1 male and 3 females.  Later census shows Alfred with the same numbers and Green Berry with another daughter.

    Family Elizabeth Smith,   b. Abt 1801, North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. Aft 1870  (Age ~ 70 years) 
    Married
    • 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."
