In 1844, he moved to Elkhart City, IN. For his military service, John Watts was issued a bounty land warrant, under the Act of 28 Sep 1850, for 40 acres at Harris Township, St. Joseph Co., IN. In the 1850 Census, he is shown living two residences from, what I believe, was his sister, Nancy (Watts) Savage. His wife's name was Mariah Chestnutwood d. 22 Oct 1879, and is buried in PA. John Watts father and grandfather both were military. James Watts, Sr., his grandfather, was killed by Indians in an attack at Fort Freeland, PA in 1779. He had served in the Revolutionary War. John's father, James Jr., died 19 Jul 1808 at Warriors Run, PA and was in the military a
