Death of Richard Watterson, July 15, 1910, Linn Co., Missouri
« on: Monday 14 June 21 02:07 BST (UK) »
Richard Watterson was born abt 1835/1836 in Ireland and was married to Eliza Ann McIlroy abt 1855. I can't find the marriage but presuming Ireland as their first child Mary Ann was born Ireland abt 1855, second child Thomas G. born Ohio abt 1859. It is possibly this Richard who applied for naturalization in 1868 in Belmont Co., Ohio but his parents are not listed.
Richard died July 15,1910 and I am looking for the names of his parents, thinking John Watterson and Mary Sands. Richard had a brother Gabriel who died Oct 16, 1912 also in Ohio.
I found Richard in 1870 in Belmont Co., Ohio but not after that. Presumably he moved to Missouri at some point.
Thanks for any help

Richard had a brother Gabriel who died Oct 16, 1912 also in Ohio.


 It appears you have some information that is confused. The Gabriel, who died Oct. 16, 1912, died in Missouri. Also,  Gabriel's DC indicates he had different parents then Richard.

It appears Richard and Eliza had a son William, born 1865 Ohio, who died in 1915.

Very lengthy and detailed obit for William...a ton of information!

Wow, RJ137. You are terrific. I am elated to find out that I was right about Richardís parents. Also, I did not have a brother Gabriel for him which turns out to be correct despite what findagrave says.
Williamís obit is wonderful. Thank you for sending it. It will help me a lot.
Thank you Erato as well.

Richard Watterson's wife Eliza Jane McElroy died 1918 as per findagrave in Meadville, Linn Co., Missouri. Would love to find her parents' names. There was a Becky Watterson listed as Grandma on the 1880 census but wondering if it should be Becky McElroy because I know that Richard's mother was Mary and she never went to the USA.
thanks for your help

Thank you Sandra very much. So grandma Becky is Eliza Annís mother. When I find Richard and Eliza Annís marriage record it should have the name of her father.
