In Response To: RE: WATTS BURIAL PLOT -1800'S ()
Where are these cemetary plots? In Portsmouth, VA?
Two of members of our group transcribed the tombstone inscriptions of 3 cemetaries in Portsmouth, Mt. Calvary, Mt. Olive and Potters field. They published the book its entitled Inscriptions in Triumph compiled and published by Mae Breckenridge-Haywood and Dinah Waters. There are 2 WATTS and 1 Watt interred in these cemetary:
Ida F. WATTS, Sept. 10, 1869-Dec 7, 1930
John H. WATTS died April 14, 1914
Frances WATT 1842-1899
If the family cemetary is in Portsmouth I can forward your email address to them.
