I couldn't find anything more positive on Helena but feel she is a good prospect for Sarah Elena
Watterson. 
Even though that private tree might have mistakes, including a death year, I thought it might still indicate there was a Hurl connection which is why I was persevering with it.
Is there a Davidson connection in Scotland anywhere in the Watterson lines that is turning up so far (Renfrewshire or Lanarkshire) ?

Sarah Elena was not on the private tree at all. But yes, there was a Davidson connection in Scotland to the Hurls and if you trace it back many generations, a possible Watterson connection.

She is listed -

Private Member Photos

Record information. Name   
Sarah Elena Watterson - Birth 13 Dec 1881
Death 1950


Granted she (the tree owner)  has a lot of branches - her mother was Anne Hurl nee Davidson from Scotland. (1939 Renfrewshire - 2018)
Out of interest - Have you read her obit to see if any names click ?

It is only possible to show you what I can see. Sarah Elena was listed on the private tree as I showed you in this reply earlier.
You would need an invite to view it but if the owner is distancing from you, that's difficult.

No obit as yet for Helena Cherry, hopefully some one else will help you out with that.

It seems that the death certificate for 9 February 1962 doesn't give first names of parents, but wonder if there is an obit.

Thanks ever so much, RJ137. Very good. This reveals that George predeceased Helena.

There is a George Cherry born 1893, which George was, who died in 1961 and is buried in Mt. Sharon Cemetery as per findagrave. Don't know if it is the correct George.

Helena's obit gave her address as 1005 Winchester Av, Rockledge.

George died in 1951. Same address on DC & his obit as is on Helena's obit.

Fantastic, RJ137. Death notice has different cemetery than findagrave.
Thank you so  very much.
