This house stood on the site of the large brick house to your right, from 1885 to 1935, when it was moved to this location. John S. Watson (1833-1895) was the great grandfather of John, James, & Bob Wilson. In 1864, after being wounded fighting General Sherman, he was brought home from Macon by his wife and a son.

The father of seven children, he is buried next to one of his sons-U.S. Senator Thomas E. Watson, who was the father of Rural Free Delivery-in the City Cemetery on Lumpkin Street in Thomson. Others are buried in the family cemetery to your right. There are currently six homes of John S. Watson descendants here on the John S. Watson Homeplace.

Burned August 5, 1998
