Concerning the accuracy of online family trees

This Charles is not the son of Thomas Watson and Rebecca Lewis Moorman of Tippecanoe County, Indiana. The names and proximate dates are just a coincidence. Thomas Watson was from Bedford, VA; then moved on to Washington Co., PA, then onward to Greene County, OH, then Tippecanoe Co., IN. There seems to be no indication they were ever in TN; My 2nd G-grandmother wrote an extensive genealogy about the Watson's in the 1920's. She was the grand daughter of Thomas and Rebecca (Moorman) Watson. I see alot of inaccuracies on what is linked on Rootsweb and other family trees. Unfortunately, I do not have access to my ggrandmother's genealogy papers at this time, but one of these days will try to dig them out of storage. -Tim Cook
