Watson to his wife, Libbie, were quoted from a book published in 1982 for the Watson descendants by the late Mildred Louise Watson, granddaughter of Charles and Libbie and Dana Adele Scott, who is their great, great granddaughter. It is to these two ladies that we give thanks that the stories of Charles's Civil War experiences have been brought forth for all of us to enjoy on this website. Many thanks to Mildred and Dana for this priceless gift!
