Watkins GraveFrom Mt Enterprise, take Hwy 84 west about 18 miles and turn right (north) onto FM 839. In just less than 2 miles, the road makes a hard "S" curve. In the 2nd curve, turn left (south) onto CR 4271. Go just past CR 4271 A and watch on the right side of the road for the grave. The grave is on private property but can be seen from the fence.
This single grave is located on CR 4271, northeast of Reklaw and is the ancestor of my young
associate, Jud Watkins. The stone says:

November 16, 1794
