Going back to the 1940 census 2321 Second Street Philadelphia - think its mentioned in a thread somewhere.

Samuel White   64   Head
Bertha White 64   Wife
Benjamin Watterson 69   Lodger. born 1871. Widowed. NA.
William Stulman 69   Lodger
Robert Wade 44   Lodger
Robert Dempster 45   Lodger
Robert Dempster Jr 16   Lodger
James McGlynn 61   Lodger
Ellen Watterson 63   Lodger. born Ireland. Widowed. NA. Age at first marriage 25 years. Had 2 children.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L9MT-18Z5?i=23&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AKQWY-1MT

Samuel White was also married in Camden NJ to Bertha Bradley 7 July 1895 - same as Benjamin and Lizzie - reply 42 other thread - your awaiting the certificate for Benjamin.  (coincidence ?)

On the death certificate for Samuel White  19 September 1945 - parents were John White and Martha Brown.  Buried N. Cedar Hill Cemetery.

Samuel naturalized 7/2/1940 - 2321 N Second. Philadelphia. PA.
Samuel was widowed.
Samuel immigrated from Co Antrim Ireland on SS Umbria arriving July 1893. ( The White surname was interesting and again coincidence - wonder if Lizzie was first married to Everall/Averill and then to Benjamin Watterson ?)
