    Hi,
    Your site is very informative. I am researching my family Watson, and today learned there is also, or was, a Watsonville in Germany. Do you know if any of the residents in Watsonburg are from there?
    Thanks for your time and interest. I would love to find out more about the area, what it is like today.
