Wow Sandra you have done a most impressive and awesome job of tracing the family and descendants of Henry Watterson and Lucinda Ellis. You even found Mamie who is only mentioned on one census. She is one of the three surviving children of Henry and Lucinda. I estimate that Henry Sr died between 1884 and 1895 when Lucinda is found as a widow on the city directory.
All of your research is thorough accurate and well documented. I can’t thank you enough.
I did find the death records for the two small children of Henry and Lucinda who are buried in Cypress Hills cemetery and why I have written to the cemetery to see if Henry might be buried with them and we would finally find his date of death.
There is certainly longevity in the Watterson family. Many of them lived till well in their 90s even 100 years of age as in the case of Isaac that we found a bit ago. My desktop computer is undergoing maintenance at the moment and I will have to wait until I get it back hopefully today to save the documents that you have found. It was plumb full of genealogy and photos so I needed a new 4 TB hard drive.
Thank you again Sandra.

So Henry Sr was deceased before the Feb 1892 census. As for city directories, they often represent the year before. Not sure what to think when it says 1889/1890 for example. Might mean 1889. anyway you have narrowed it down to between 1889 and Feb 1892 so perhaps 1891. Wonder if his name is misspelled at death and that’s why we can’t find it.
I have a second reply from Evergreens cemetery and besides Lucinda Waterson and her daughter Elizabeth W Johnston, we have S. Johnston (1910), M. Johnston (1926), Mamie Zindel (1955), Henry Waterson (1956) and Pauline Waterson (1974) interred in this lot. Thinking the Johnston burials are children of Elizabeth.

Yes those would be Elizabeth Johnston children. Also confirms that I had the right Henry Waterson death in 1956. Nice to have that confirmation.

Yes, great confirmation.
Working from memory since my computer is not at hand, Henry and Lena had a baby Henry on the 1910 census who is not on the 1940. He may have married or moved on or he may have died. Also wondering about a Raymond. I can’t find the family in either 1920 or 1930 but I think the 1920 would be most important.
