Notes for GUSTAF OTTO WATS:
To follow this family name back in time is not an easy task!
Going from the present back is the only way that I can make sense of the trail.
Gerald Watts son of Gordon Watts married Marcella Crotty
Gordon Watts son of Gustav Otto Wats - married Kristin Soderlund
(there is a variation of the spelling of the last name Watz / Wats / Wats / Vats)
Gustav Otto Wats son of Anders Vats - married Sara Lena Torn
Anders Vats son of Johannes Nyman - married Lena Jonsdotter

Gustaf:
Born in Vardnas (E). Moved from Vardnas (E) to Strafford, Iowa USA
He then moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Were he married Kristin Soderlund.

Gustav age 50, passed away from phenomena, when Gordon Watts Sr. was 12 years of age.

Volume 33 E. B. 215 Sheet 16 Line 26
1902 Pa Citizenship

He passed away, shortly after he divorced.

According to Arne Strang whom lives in Sweden = Gusto Otto Anderson Watz is the same person as Gustav Otto Wats. Possible that Anders Vats changed it after Gustav Watts was born to Wats?

Another resource states " Gustav O Watz age 26, from Vardnas parish in Ostergotland province. Emigrated via Gothenburg port 11 April 1902 to Stafford, Iowa. Most likely a misprint for Stratford in Hamilton County, Iowa.

Vardnas is 20 km SSE of town Linkoping in Ostergotland.

Quite impossible that name originally was Wattson. But Watz is an old lineage in Ostergotland.
