Born in a Fort
🛖Davidson's Fort was a far West outpost in North Carolina back in 1770. This picture is of a recreation of a fort built 1 mile from the original homestead of the Davidson family.
My 5th Great-grandma Rachel Davidson Watts on my mom's Sellers family side was born here in 3/23/1756 after taking refuge in the fort. Rachel's brothers George and Andrew died June 20, 1780 at the Battle of Ramsour's Mill in Lincolnton, NC.
On June 11, 1776 she married William Fuller Watts. She had lots of children and lived to 102 years of age. Wow!
