Trying to locate a marriage record for ANDERSON WATTS and HESTER
CHATMAN. Anderson's full name was Andrew Anderson Watts but he used
the "Anderson". He was born ab 1818 in Virginia and Hester ab 1820
in Tennessee. They would have married circa 1835-1837, probably in
Hawkins, Grainger or Jefferson County. They lived in District 13
Hawkins County, which became a part of Hamblen County in 1870, in and
around the Russellville, Bull's Gap, Whitesburg area.
I need the PARENTS of Hester. Some say she was a HORNER and might be
from the WILLIAM HORNER family of Jefferson, Hamblen and Hawkins
County area. William Horner I believe was connected with the Bent
Creek Church and many of my family are buried there. The Watts' and
Horners lived close to each other. Their name quite often appeared
Can anyone help me. In all my research on the WATTS' from East
Tennessee and Middle Tennessee I have never run across the name

If anyone can help me with this family mystery, I would appreciate
it. According to our records, Sarah or Sallie SMITH lived in Hawkins
Co. between 1825 and 1837 and had the following children there:
Virginia SMITH (1825), Thomas SMITH (1827), Campbell SMITH (1829),
Mary Ann (Polly) SMITH (1831), Nancy SMITH (1834), and Bryant SMITH
(1837). We have no record of her being married, as SMITH is her
maiden name. Her parents, Bryant and Dolly may have also been in the
area, as all of these Smiths moved to Alabama sometime before 1843.
I am at a loss as to how to find this family. The 1840 census that I
have reviewed does not show any of these names, so they may have
moved by this time. Any suggestions? Thank you.
