John J. Watts was born in Warren, ME, where he became a member of the Warren Baptist Church in 1858. He moved to Missouri sometime after the Civil War, and married Mary Jane Woolsey of Rolla in 1872. He began preaching the gospel in 1877, and was ordained a minister at the Beaver Creek, but traveled extensively throughout Phelps, Pulaski, and Maries counties preaching at baptisms, marriages, funerals, and organizational meetings for local churches.
