      Description: Hello, a very impressive website. As far as Ann Watkins, goes, her name was not "Margaret". There is a Margaret Koons, in the Logan Co. Ohio marriage records, who married a Christopher Watkins a few years earlier than when Ann married Edward Watkins. Margaret and Christopher Watkins lived and died in Polk Co. Indiana and are not part of the Jacob and Martha Koons family tree. As far as Ann she was in Macon Co. Illinois from prior to 1870 u.s census, in Decatur, Illinois and in 1880 she was in Warrensburg, Illinois in Macon County, Illinois. What most proves this is, the quit claim deed (See Hardin Co. Ohio Deed Vo. 37 pg 298) that she executed to a Curtis Wilkin (Jacob Koons step son from second marriage to Mary Wilkin in Hardin County, Ohio) When Jacob wrote his will he stated that he lived at Out Lot # 14 of W. Wyckoff's addition to the town of Kenton. All of Jacob's children, except Addison eventually quit claim to Curtis. Addison had died on 15 Feb. 1864 and his wife, Betsey died shortly thereafter in March 1864. Therefore, all of Addison and Betsey's 10 Children became heirs to Addison's share of Out lot # 14 and over a period of time they quit claim to Curtis Wilkin. I have made a timeline which shows this very clearly, which I would gladly share with you. Anyway, Ann watkins owned property in Warrensburg, living within a stones throw of her nephew, Robert C. Koontz (Addison's son) Her son Jacob Franklin Watkins, AKA Frank was there as well, as well as other family members. In 1895 Ann sold he property and that is as far as I am with it. I am the GGGGgrandson of Addison and Betsey. They are buried in Woodlawn cemetery here in Clinton, Illinois. I have a FGS on them that is as complete as can be and has source citation on it. I have almost finished working on all vitals on their 54 grandkids. Jacob Franklin Watkins died in 1904 in Litchfield Illinois and is buried here in Clinton at Woodlawn. Hope to hear from you. Gary
