Wow, another name for mother. Close to Averell but first name Lillian.
Quite the mess.

So if Julia married Roche, and Lillian married Hallowell, that leaves Jennie/Regina for Mrs. John Spencer, unless remarriage for Mrs. Spencer or a different Benjamin.
Now I see you have found a Virginia Watterson who may be different than Regina and maybe not. Husband not John Spencer.
Beginning to think we have 2 Benjamin Watterson families on the go here. Maybe one in Ohio and one in Philadelphia.
