I have a small very old pocket watch. It has Roman numerals

Customer Question

I have a small very old pocket watch. It has Roman numerals and Illinois is on the face. The word "dueber" is on the case. The name "Sallie" is engraved on the outside or flip part of the watch. This watch has been in the family for a very long time (maybe up to 100 years). This ,quite possibly, may have belonged to Sallie Chisum--A niece to John Chisum and a close friend of Billy the Kid. Is there any way of checking this out ?
