Yes. John S. Watts b. 1787 NC d. 1860 CA and his son John Schooling Watts b. 1827 KY d. 1901 UT. I obtained John Jr.'s Mexican War Pension file but didn't get his service record. The pension file is quite extensive as John Jr. married 3 times and all three wives were living at the time of his death. The examiners eventually determined that his first wife, Juana Ormena Watts was entitled to his pension.
I am very interested in finding out more about John and John Jr. I've recently put the Watts Hays Letters online at John S. Watts wrote Letter 1 in 1849 and John S. Watts. Jr. wrote Letter 2 in about 1850.
