In case you didn't see it, this is an interesting article about the Rogerenes.  The Watrous/Waterhouse/Waterous family are mentioned:

It's an apt reminder that religious liberty was not always an assumption in America.  Sometimes we forget how hard-won was that right we take for granted today.
Petticrew, Pettigrew, Bedigrew, and all variants.

Thanks usaPetticrew for this extra information - I'd been reading up on the Rogerene Quakers. David SCOTT, who married Lydia WATROUS, was in all probability a Wesleyan Methodist - his first cousin was David STONER the famous Wesleyan Methodist Minister (his sermons and letters have been collected and publlished).

David STONER's sister Ellen STONER - also a 1st cousin to David SCOTT - married George CROFT (another Wesleyan Minister) and she with her husband worked for the Methodists throughout the West Indies before settling in Pike Co, Illinois. I suspect David SCOTT's family connections would have had some strong say in his being accepted by the WATROUS family.
