Will Watson was my great grand dad. I was hoping to find more info or tips on finding more on him. No family tree beyond him. I know he was convicted as a horse thief riding with Henry Starr and he was sentanced to One year at Huntsville at 18 yo. Relation to Edgar J. Watson?, a rather colorful individual. While in Huntsville his wife and 2 of 4 kids died of colera. Once he was released he disappeared.
In my manuscript "Man Hunter In Indian Country" I have the Watson gang in Chickasaw Nation. He was William Watson. Don't know if he was your Will Watson or not.
