    Notes 
    • Kathy Casagranda thinks she might be from the Easley family.William Everheart believes she is from the Smith Family of Sabine County, Texas. Scott Watkins (firedogger@gmail.com) also believes she is from Smith Family. He states that her parents were John E. and Mary Smith, the parents of three sons and one daughter. He notes that Green Berry Watkins, John E Smith, and Alfred L. Watkins are all documented having sold each other deeds of land in Louisiana. Scott further points out at that the time of the 1850 Sabine County, Texas census, the widowed Mary Smith, age 77, was living with her son, William D. Smith and his family. William was also widowed.

      The 1870 census shows her as being born in Tennessee versus North Carolina.

    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."
