The 1910 census shows Jennie Watterson born 1900 - perhaps she was Regina Waterson - 4 August 1900

The Benjamin in 1920 says naturalized 1898. Wonder if that would enlighten us, if we could find it.

I find a Lillian E. Watterson in 1920, age 11, in Northern Home for Friendless Children. Is this Benjamin's youngest daughter.
Also, I keep running across an Elizabeth Aber/Abed/Averill in the familysearch records in connection to Benjamin Watterson. Perhaps Lizzie Watterson, mother of the 4 children is not the 1895 Martha.
There is a Lillian Watterson born Jan 27, 1909 to Benjamin Watterson and Elizabeth Abed/Aber.
