Sarah supposedly died between 1881 and 1900 but I  don't find her in 1880 to see if she had children.
Peggy

William (single) is with his mother at 1228 East York Street in 1880 (same address as they lived at in 1870)

If this is of any help…

Not much help, but  :-\

Sarah’s address from her marriage record: 1008 Richmond Street
Witnesses: Wm. H. Yerkes and Mrs. Sarah Beard
Church of the Messiah

A marriage record for a Sarah Beard:
Sarah Beard, age 37, residence 1008 Richmond Street, married 1 June 1876, place 1008 Richmond Street (married in her residence?), spouse Gottlieb F. C. Knoblanch
Church of the Messiah

Could Sarah Beard have been a widow in 1876 and possibly an aunt to other relative of Sarah Watterson/Waterson?

That is a great observation and follow up regarding Sarah Beard. It might be useful to find Sarah’s prior marriage to Mr. Beard. Thank you Lisa in California.

That doesn't seem to be the correct William in 1900, widower, as siblings are different and his  occupation is iron moulder, instead of Boiler maker like all the other censuses.
Thanks Sandra.
Peggy

Regarding the 1900 census - those were not Williams siblings - he was a boarder.  The date given for birth was Jan 49 (coincidence  :-\)  Occupation "stove moulder"- - depends who gave the information. Might still be the same  :-\
