I haven't found any info on the WATTERS as yet, but I'm very perplexed with the LAKE family. I've seen your postings on findagrave, so assuming Sarah is your ancestor.I 1st find her 1870, ae 16 with Alfred, but the problem arises..... 1860 St Clairsville, Belmont Co OH LAKE Alfred 40 OH Jane 38 PA Mary C 13 OH Lathaly 21 OH [from previous marriage? sis?] Where is Sarah?She should be 6yrs old.Was she adopted?
Thought it odd Sarah's ex is a lodger next door to her 1900!
1840 Dr Wm WATTERS looks like a newlywed, but there is Andrew & Adam WATTERS who have daus right age. 1850 Wash. Twp, Belmont Co is Sarah WATTERS b 1776 MD possibly w/o Adam; she resides Union Twp 1860. Adam resided 1820 Goshen Twp.
