Hi I am also trying to track down a Waters family in Newberry Co SC--Thomas M Waters who shows up in the 1840 Coweta Co GA census records and 1839 marriage records. He married Julia Ann Randolph in 1839 in Coweta Co GA, but in the 1840 census records for Coweta GA there are 10 children listed. In the 1850 census records there are 6 Waters's listed but not with their parents. All of these children were born before 1839--which leaves me to believe that Thomas M Waters was married at least once before, but I've not been able to find any record of this. The names found in the 1850 Coweta Co GA census are:
William L age 15 b in GA Eliza age 18 b in GA Mariah age 19 b in SC (living with sister & brother in law?) below Mary Jane age 20 b in SC m Joshua Gorie 1849 Coweta Co GA Elam age 23 b in SC Fleming age 25 b in SC
There was a migration of the Waters and Moore families (which connect later in my line) from Newberry Co Sc to Coweta Co Ga.
If anyone has any information on any of these people, I would greatly appreciate it
