Watters Genealogy
hi, i usually start with a county records search. many records are being archived by both the state and local counties. this is pending the fact that the county borders were not redrawn or that the state was not a territory or something. i have found a few records for james waters/watters in pendelton but have never tried to expand, as i have spent most of my time on maxeys.

since my maxey family is from virginia. i have often spent time researching the library of virginia. since you mentioned virginia i conducted a small search on james watters/waters. i found there is a ton of records for his name. a quick run of how to get started: search the lva cataloge, waters, james, and then jump to page 977. i have spent hours doing this and am waiting on some reading glasses. so it will be awhile for i get back to searching.

i am with you there are 4 buried patriots in the o waters cemetery and i can only imagine how they felt as each one passed on!. i have also learned that my grandmothers families are similiar to my dads in the fashion that several patriots families moved into a area of land and there families where joined by marriage. i have had several returns on this part of my family dna test, including the chambers and wilson families. this wont help us find james mother and father but i have a few other links i have not tried. if all else fails try footnote.

RE: James Waters of Fayette, IN
the best i can offer you is a link to my ancestry tree. this line is one of my dead ends. i have found there was 3 rev war veterans buried in the o waters cemetery. i am not 100% if one is our james. there are ways to find out but someone would have to visit the deeds office in the counties of union, fayette or franklin, keeping in mind that all early counties were reformed at sometime or another.

thanks bill

RE: James Waters - Fayette Grave
I don't have any info on James Waters. The memorial was created by William Maxey. You should probably check with him.
