In 1892 she was married to William Waterman, and six children were born to them. One of the children preceded her in death. After the death of her first husband, Mrs. Waterman married Adolf Waterman in 1905. Four children were born to this union, all of whom survive.
In 1916 the family moved to Amherst, Colorado, in 1918 to Holyoke, and in 1933 to Haxtun, where Mrs. Waterman had since lived.
