From: "A History of the Scotch Presbyterian Church, St. Gabriel Street, Montreal"
By Rev. Robert Campbell, Montreal 1887

Thomas Watson, elected a trustee [of St. Gabriel Street Church] in the room of Mr. Hood, 3rd July, 1878, is a native of Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland. He came to Canada in 1844, and joined the Laprairie Church in 1848. He was afterwards in business at Napierville. 

He had been attending St. Andrew’s Church with his mother-in-law, Mrs. Walker, prior to December, 1866; but they all cast iu their lot with St. Gabriel’s at that time. Mr. Watson was very musical, and sang in the choir until he left the city for Ottawa in 1881. He was also an active member of the different societies connected with the church. His daughter is married to George Jeffrey of Petite Cote.
