You have done an amazing job of finding this Watterson family, amondg and Sandra. I believe you have found the right people despite the age differences and name differences and place differences.
Great to have the dates of death for Benjamin and Virginia, also Julia.
I wonder who Lillian gave as parents when she married Charles Hallowell or Julia when she married Mr. Roche. Also Benjamin.
Interesting that when Virginia married John G. Spencer, she gave her mother as Elizabeth White nee Averill but when she died her mother's maiden name was Watterman which obviously would be Watterson.
Thanks ever so much,

I found a  marriage of Benj. Watterson to Lizzie Averell in Camden, Camden, NJ on June 8, 1895 and I have ordered the marriage record although I am prepared to find no additional information on the record such as parents, ages, church, etc. But one can always hope.

I have not yet received the marriage record of Benjamin Watterson in Camden New Jersey in 1895 to see what it might reveal. Hoping to  see the names of Benjamin‘s parents among other things to see if we have two Benjamin Wattersons at the same time in Philadelphia or one. I had hoped the death certificate for the Benjamin who died in 1952 would clarify that but it didn’t so so.

Thinking of Virginia Margaret Gee's death Oct 24, 1980 in Long Beach, California. Do we know where she is buried? She is nee Watterson, last husband John George Spencer, but she doesn't seem to be buried with John. Wondering if her mother might be buried with her and we would finally find out Lizzie's date of death.
