Surnames: Watts, Resa, Urias, Carrasco
I am looking for information regarding the Watts family. My great-grandfather was James R. Watts and I understand that his family was from Marfa. He later was married to Lucresia Dominguez and moved to Van Horn. We know that they had a family however we are only aware of two Annie Watts and Virginia. Annie Watts passed away in the 1940's and Virginia married and moved to Dennison, Texas. I am also seeking information on my maternal grandfather, Conrado Resa. I understand that he was born in Redford, Texas in Feb. 1900 . If any one has any obituaries, information, or advice as to how to find out more on these individuals please contact me at mercysol@yahoo.com

Mike,
I have Anita Olivas-Watts, a daughter of a grt-uncle Martin Olivas. Anita Olivas-Watts passed away last year in Marfa at the age of 72. Unfortunately I never met my cousin Anita, so I don't know which of the Watts she was married to. I will email you direct and give you the names of her listed survivors or refer you to an online obituary that listed her death notice. I think you will find that they are related to your Watts family.
I am somewhat familiar with the Reza families from researching my Presidio County relatives for our family tree so I'll be happy to direct you to online reference sites which may provide you with the info that you are seeking.

Mike:

My great-grandfather, James M. Watts lived in Marfa Texas at one time. He owned a saloon and brothel there from 1887-1893. He then moved to neighboring Alpine Texas where he was a very successful merchant. He was married to Maria Fierro Watts who was from Chihuahua Mexico. They had seven children. She died in 1912 and James died in 1923, they are buried next to each other at Holy Angles Cemetary in Alpine Texas. Today there are still Watts decendents living in Marfa, but I lost touch with them when one of my relatives died.

Read my response to Luis Fraustro for more details and I will mail you directly.

Anita Olivas Watts was married to David Watts Sr. His uncle was my grandfather, Joe a.k.a. Jose Watts. I have been trying for many many years to to locate his final resting place.

I will e mail you directly with information I have on Anita Olivas Watts. She helped me so much in my research and was the one person who gave me so many leads.
