J.C. was born in the County of Aiken, Township of Chinquapin on March 10, 1925 to his parents James Clarence, Sr. and Fannie Wheeler Watkins. He was married to the late Henrietta Redfern Watkins for 57 years.

J.C. served in the Army during World War II. He retired from (DuPont) Savannah River Site of Separations Works Engineering in the E & I Department after 30 years. He also served as a board member for Aiken County Public Schools. He prided himself as being known as a farmer and a man of God. He was a member of Mt. Ebal his entire life. As an adult he continued to serve God at Mt. Ebal in many roles including deacon and Sunday school teacher up until he was no longer able to attend.
