Tombstone Tuesday - Pelatiah and Elizabeth “Betsy” WATSON

Family history handed down from my husband’s side of the family has a Pelatiah WATSON married to “Betsy” (*maiden name was unknown), and they are parents of four children:  James, Louisa, Candace and Sally.

What I have found (still pending primary sources) is Pelatiah WATSON, born in 1776 in Vermont.  This Pelatiah was married to Elizabeth FLETCHER, who was born 1786, and was also from Vermont.  This couple had at least four children (the four previously mentioned) and two more: John and Henry. 

If this is our family (which I am almost certain), then, thanks to Find A Grave, I found Pelatiah and his wife, Elizabeth's tombstone in the Trenton Cemetery, Trenton, Dodge County, Wisconsin.
