Yes, Sandra is absolutely wonderful and she did find the death of Alexander Watterson and other info about him but I don't recall his travel in  1921 with Lena and Agnes Pattison/Patterson, going to cousin Archie Pattison in New Jersey. I  am looking for parents of those Pattisons as we speak. Alexander Watterson's parents were Joseph Watterson and Margaret Jane Patterson. OK, I have found Lena and Agnes' parents as Robert Pattison and Agnes Cowan and I know Margaret Jane Watterson nee Pattison had a brother Robert John. So there's that connection. Haven't found Archie Pattison's birth.
Thanks for your help

I think the parents for Agnes Lena Archie are Samuel Pattison Sarah Jane Morris
Contact details for Agnes and Lena was mother Mrs Sarah Pattison Ballmackeheaney
Death for their father Samuel 1908 address Ballmackeheaney
Check birth for Archibald Pattison 1899 Magherafelt on Irish records although mothers maiden name is recorded as Wallace
