This story was finally confirmed when the watch was cracked open revealing the inscription.

So interesting! And I had NO idea you were so into geneology. We miss you around these parts. I thought I'd say "these parts" in the vernacular just in case you don't understand us West Coasters anymore :) I love that I can keep up with you two crazies online :)
