George and Margaret Watson lived in Xenia Township in Greene County, Ohio, from approximately the middle to the end of the nineteenth century. At one time, George Watson was secretary of sub-district 10 of Xenia Township. The Watson's had a child, J.W. Watson, and a niece by the name of Rebecca Bone or Rebecca Bouen. Margaret Watson also had a sister whose married name was Edith Trader.

In addition to the George Watson letters, the collection contains letters to Emily Watson whose relation to the George Watson family is not known. An envelope, which is part of file nine, shows that Emily Watson lived at 696 South Detroit Street, Xenia, Ohio, in 1925. Another correspondent was Edward Richardson who seemingly was a brother to a member of the Watson family.
