Waters Family 
So often as I have tried to trace this group, I have seen the counties lacking some basic information concerning residents in their county.  So I am posting these notes so they may perhaps help others searching the line of Waters.

Our line is Jesse S. Waters, b. in Georgia who married Amelia Ann Fisher (d/o Moses and Lucy Shaver Fisher) in Union Co., IL in 1865.  They are then found on the Bollinger Co., Mo census, the Union County, Il, and the Mississippi Co., Mo census.  One line is in Butler Co., Mo. I have often thought they might have traveled into those areas because family might have been in those areas as well.  Recent information suggests Jesse might have been in Tennessee and Kentucky before Union Co., ca 1865.  If this is true, the groups listed revealing those birth areas may indeed be linked.
