Please bear with me here.
I am Still struggling with finding my grandparents. Curiously, I found a Lulu Watson living in Sullivan County in 1910. She is listed as a step daughter to Peter Helms and Susan Mc Kane. Susan was previously married to a John Watson according to Linda Ogborn's list of obituaries and to the marriage records on the Delaware County web site. The census of 1900 in Sullivan County shows Susan married to Henry G. Watson, brother to John Watson. This John Watson was born in the same year my grandfather was supposedly born and is listed as born in NY while all the other family members are listed as being born in PA. Which is where my grandmother was supposedly born. The Watson's and Mc Kanes are from Pike County, Dingman, PA and the Helms are also from PA. They went to Fremont in Sullivan County. Josiah Mc Kane brother to Susan lived in Hancock.
Is anyone searching these families? Is it possible this John Watson is my grandfather? He seems to have disappeared from the family after 1880.
I am going to mail for the marriage and obituaries and see if I get a clue. But, if anyone knows anything about these families please email me.
