Watson on the Farm
     During Watson's career in advertising, Watson and Rosalie lived at Whippoorwill Farm in Westport, Connecticut.  Watson loved to drive his speed boat, farm, and ride horses.
     Watson and Rosalie had two sons, William Rayner Watson and James Broadus Watson.  Rosalie became critically sick and died in 1935 at the age of 35. 
     Watson eventually left Whippoorwill Farm in the 1950s and moved to a smaller farm in Woodbury, Connecticut, where he lived until his death in 1958.
