Thank you for your response to my posting. My interest is in Eliza Waterhouse Preble, b. 1810, d. 1/25/1883. I show the same parents of Emerson that you provided so I assume we are talking about the same folks. I show Emerson's death on 3/31/1883, and I found Eliza in the 1880 census living with her daughter Emeline and Emeline's husband Reuel Weymouth in Monmouth, Kennebec, ME.
My big question is if Eliza had a brother Andrew Jackson Waterhouse, my husband's ggrandfather. I know she is the daughter of Zenas and Apphia Sands Waterhouse, and she had sisters Olive and Ruth. Although old census data seems to indicate a brother of about the right age, I can't find any verification if he was our Andrew.
So, that's my puzzle. Thanks for your response and if you have any info that can fill in my gaps, I would appreciate your help.
