Hey everyone! I'm looking for information on a man named Timothy Watkins. a former treasure hunter who retired to Ocala, FL, in the late '70s. His wife was named Louise and he was survived by his son, James Robert Watkins. He co-owned a company called Marine Explorations, with Olin Frick, and also owned Haitian Marble Corporation, which was located at 4000 SW 6th Ave. in Ocala. He passed away in 1988.

I really want to know about his time with Marine Explorations and aside from a quick blurb about him in Burt Webber's biography, there isn't much information out there. I am also struggling to make contact witj possible relatives of his. If you have any information, please post here or email me at [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you!
