1. Watson's House Marker
Inscription. W.J. Watson who was a postmaster and store manager lived in this house with his daughter, Mrs. Reston and his granddaughter Zoe.

Although Mr. Watson was an employee of high rank, and he was aware of the anti-liquor policy of the company, he liked to take a drink of beer occasionally. In order not to be involved in an embarrassing situation he would give my father a dollar and ask him to purchase four bottles of beer with it. He would reward dad by giving him one bottle and saying in Spanish, "Tres para mi, y uno para uste", which means, "Three for me and one for you."

Mr. Watson was kind and helpful to everybody.
