Hi Peggy,

I have just tweaked Courtney's post so that she can reply to you via the PM function.

This is for Sandra. In reply #72, you commented on John Watterson's Civil War draft registration and I would like to find it. Would you be able to help me? I tried to PM you but it said your mailbox was full.

Lizzie was the wife of Benjamin Watterson and they are on the 1910 census in Philadelphia with their children Julia born 1897, Jennie 1897, Benjamin born 1900 and Lillie age 2. Benjamin is a fireman.
In 1920, the family can't be found but there is a Benjamin living by himself, widower, fireman. I think this is him, which means Lizzie died 1910-1920. Would like her death certificate to verify her maiden name and parents.
Later on, Julia married George Washington Roche abt 1920. Jennie aka Virginia married firstly a Mr. Gee, abt 1920, divorced him, married William Digney June 27, 1931, and lastly John George Spencer. Funnily enough, Virginia used surname Gee at death in 1980 in Long Beach, California.
Lillie married Charles Hallowell bef 1930 and is alive in 1940. Possibly died in Ohio but not sure when. Possible dod June 11, 1961 but not sure of this.
Thanks for any help
Hello -- My name is Charles Warren Hallowell, Jr.
My mother was (died Dec 13th, 1955 -(pneumonia) Lillian Elizabeth Hallowell, ne Watterson.
Julia Roche was my aunt, who visited our home in Willow Grove, Pa many times during WW2.
My dear mother was divorced from my father, and never re-married.
Mother lived at 2163 North 15th Street, Phila, when she died of pneumonia while I was in Boot Camp (USNavy) in December of 1955.
My sister Doris died, leaving 6 children: John, Kathy, Jane, Margaret, Steve, & Michael.
 Jane and Michael are now deceased.
 Doris was born November 24th, 1929, and I am 9 years her junior.
   Mother spoke of her brother Bennie, but I never met him. Her sister, Julia was my favorite aunt, (I didn't know of any others).
 My mother often spoke of a very cruel childhood -- she was placed in a "home", where she met my father, who also had been placed in the same "home".
 Mom, Dad, & Doris lived in Parma, Ohio before returning to the Philadelphia area, where they lived out their lives.
 Charles Hallowell (Dad) worked at the Hunting Park Plant of the Edward G. Budd Company until he retired.
 Lillian Hallowell (Watterson) worked for The International Resistance Corporatoin during WW2, and returned to homemaker after the war.
 She later became a cocktail waitress -- until she died at the age of 47.
 My mother's father was a fireman (not the fire engine guys), who worked 12-hour shifts shoveling coal into a hotel's boilers. In a fit of despair, he shovled one of the babies into the fire pit, so as to spare him from a life of cruel misery.
 It's kinda funny how people talk of "the good old days" -- if they only knew !!
 I'm 83 now, happily married and living in Arizona.
  I'm sorry if this is TMI -- geezers can't help themselves  ;>)
