WATTSVILLE, TEXAS. Wattsville was on Farm Road 514 seven miles northwest of Emory in northern Rains County. It was settled around the time of the Civil War. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a store, and a number of scattered dwellings. After World War II the store closed, and in the early 1990s only a cemetery and a few houses remained.
