Mike Watson: Our grandfather, Milton Watson

Click on headline for story with photos mentioned in article

By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian

Milton Watson, our grandfather, born 1886, died 15 December 1970, 47 years ago, at Columbia, Adair County. A life-long farmer, he moved to town in 1960. He and our dear grandmother, Mary Lee "Mollie" Reeder Watson, and their youngest son, William, lived out their remaining years on Sandusky Street.


Three photos accompany this article, of Grandpa Watson, two in later life, at home in town, and the third as a young man from a family group, perhaps around 1905-1909.

This old photo was originally published on CM about three years ago by our cousin, Joyce Reeder. And a million thanks for that photo, which was a family group that we had never seen. Mike Watson
