iCloud error when unlocking Sierra with Apple Watch

in Genius Bar edited December 2016
My Mac Pro has an SSD boot drive and I've moved my Home folder to an external RAID device.  I had a bad drive in the RAID and during the repair process, at one point after a reboot/login sequence, the RAID array was not ready so OS X created a fresh ~/Library directory on the boot drive.  After getting everything fixed I deleted that ~/Library and got everything point correctly and rebooted.  OS X started using my correct Home directory with the appropriate ~/Library directory.  All customization in the ~/Library were working as normal except for two items.  Previous shortcuts in the Finder window disappeared and Apple Watch login no longer works.  When I try to tick the checkbox in System Preferences/Security, I get the following response:

"Your Apple Watch must be signed in to iCloud to allow it to unlock your Mac."

However, all iCloud settings are completed.

So - I assume the Apple Watch security setting is somewhere in ~/Library and I probably just need to delete it and re-setup.  

Anybody know where that is?

    Unlocking with Apple Watch isn't working for me, either. 

    It says "Unlocking with Apple Watch" and then requires a password or Touch ID.
