The marriage record of Joel G. Watkins and Cynthia in 1863 gives her surname as "Watkins". The 1850 census shows Joel and Cynthia with a 7-year-old son George. George's birth record on 18 Aug 1843, Chester, VT, gives his parents as Joel and Cynthia Watkins, as does his death record on 8 Sep 1864, Andersonville Prison, GA.
