James Waters, b.1871, wife Mary West, b.1870, lived Rock Co., WI
I have two original cabinet card photographs, one of “James and Mary West”, showing them to be about age 26-27, and the other of “Mary (West) Waters” alone, taken in about 1896-7 by a photographer with studios in both Racine (Racine Co.) and Janesville (Walworth Co.) WI. I’d like to get these pictures back to descendants or family members.
1900 census for Johnstown (Rock Co.) shows James N. and Mary M. Waters living with their daughter Wilma, age 8 mo. in home of her parents Orrin and Lucy West and with Mary’s brother. Birthdates were James (July 1871) and Mary (Aug 1870). 1880 census Walworth Co. shows Mary was daughter of “Orin” and Lucy West, and Family Tree shows her to be Mary Morgan West. James and Mary were married 2 yrs. as of 1900 census. 1920 through 1940, they remained in Johnstown (Rock Co.).
