Biography of Jesse Watson
Oswego County, NY Biographies





Watson, Jesse, one of the prominent men of Fulton, was born June 23, 1814, in Schoharie county. His father, Reuben Watson, removed to Lenox. Madison county, among the pioneers of 1816. In early youth he began the study of medicine and in 1838 received a diploma from the Eclectic College of Syracuse. Four years later he established himself in Madison county, where his success in the treatment of malignant erysipelas earned widespread eminence. The disease was then epidemic at and about Cazenovia, and the old antiphlogistic treatment was of no avail. It is a recorded fact that no less than seventeen cases were within a few days, at this time, placed in the hands of Dr. Watson and that every one made a recovery; and that he has been no less successful in treatment of sporadic cases. In 1838 Dr. Watson married Louise Lansing, and their children are Eva and William J., the latter now a dispensing druggist, doing a large and lucrative business in Fulton.
