son of Asa and Sarah (Goodell) Waters
married Lydia Whitmore May 24, 1792 in Sutton, MA.

He was among the early industrial leaders of the town of Millbury, which was first established as the North Parish of Sutton and incorporated as a separate town in 1813. He is the older brother of Asa Waters II, and together they followed in their father's footsteps in the gun making trade.

This memorial to Elijah Waters is almost certainly a Cenotaph. His death in 1814 preceded the founding of the cemetery. The Centennial History of the Town of Millbury indicates that the land for the cemetery was purchased by the town in December 1843. However, the land for the cemetery was purchased from the Asa Waters, Esq. estate, and therefore it is possible that it was being used as a family burial area. The town history indicates his death in 1814 after a long illness, but does not indicate his place of burial. The lists of burials at the three older cemeteries, Dwinnell, County Bridge, and West Millbury do not include his name.
