Waltus Lockett Watkins was born near Versailles, Kentucky, on October 30, 1806. In 1830, Waltus relocated to Liberty, Missouri, in order to be near the bustling western frontier. There, he purchased wool carding machines, and his business began to prosper. He married in 1 834, and eventually relocated his family to an 80acre farm 16 miles north of Liberty, which he named Bethany. By 1850, Bethany had grown to nearly 1,300 acres.
