It did come up When inputting Bernayd Watterson. One would think it would come up when using just Watterson in Ireland in 1893.

Comes up for me by putting in just 'Watterson' and 1893 as the year.

Hello,
I have been puzzling over the family of Leonard Watterson and Eliza Martin, and wondering why he died alone and destitute. I think I may have found information on his son Joseph born Mar 5, 1844. I found a marriage of a Joseph Watterson, father Leonard, on June 24, 1869 in Arboe Church to Eliza Lapsley. Joseph was a teacher. Then I find the death of Eliza Watterson Nov 21,1882 in Ardglass, husband Joseph followed by death of Joseph Watterson July 6,1887 in Ardglass, teacher. I don't find an obit for either of them on British Newspaper Archives but maybe others will be successful. An obit might mention if Joseph's father  Leonard is still  alive which he should be if Leonard died in 1892. I have no info on Joseph's sister Mary Ann who was born 1837. Joseph's daughter Jane as per online tree went to Australia either before or after marrying Rev. Robert Henry Moore and I think before as I don't find the marriage in Ireland.

Forgot to mention in prev.posting regarding Joseph Watterson. It would be crucial to know if Joseph's mother Eliza Watterson nee Martin was alive when Joseph died in 1887. No one has been able to find Eliza's date of death which ranges all the way from 1859 in Ireland to 1902 in Idaho, neither of which I believe.

Might also be one on Derry or Ireland board but haven't looked further.

If Eliza died in Ireland before 1864 there will be no death certificate.
