    Does anyone have any information about Miss E. May Watson? I am trying to see if this is the same woman that moved to Milford Delaware to teach. She Lived at 208 NE Front Street in a home built by James Millechop Hall in 1885. I am attempting to find some background history about her for our web page. We are tryong to save the Hall-Watson Mansion from demolition.
    If this is the same woman that lived and taught in Milford, we really need the information! Thankyou for taking the time to help us-
