  1. Census - US Federal 1860 [See image]


Elizabeth Melinda (Nancy) Benson Waters Born "Abt 1845" During the 1860 Census was 26 so she would have been born abt 1834

There is an Elizabeth Malinda benson generally agreed to having been born 8 April 1829 but some say 26 Apr 1831

Suggestions that Elizabeth's family information is as follows Event(s) Birth: 8 Apr 1829 Marietta, Cobb, Georgia Death: 20 Oct 1906 Joseph, Sevier, Utah Parents Father: Rueben Benson Disc #47 Pin #265500 Mother: Mary Stepp Disc #47 Pin #265501

Wiel, born May 1867/Wales/Wales/Wales and Dora E., born Nov 1868 Utah/Ga/Ga; married 13 years... no children. Elizabeth was buried in Joseph Cemetery Lot 14 Blk 9.

Elizabeth's Husband is (Larkin) Tolliver (Born about 1820 in South Carolina) It appears their son Larkin Tolliver was born in 1858 and (Larkin Tolliver), then Died about 1860

(Larkin) Tolliver Waters DOB 1820's Father Robert William Waters appears to have been born in Virginia Around 1781 About 1781 The 15th Division, , Cherokee, Georgia Robert William Waters Married Elizabeth in South Carolina in 1820 Robert William's father was John Calvin Waters according to the New family search

I originally believed that Robert Waters, (Elizabeth's Father in law and husband to the other elizabeth) was born in 1794. it appears that comes from a Mortality schedule in Warner Kentucky District 15 showing that in June 1850 Robert Waters age 56 died of Cholera. Well, Cherokee County Georgia Shows Robert Waters, Elizabeth Waters, and (Larkin) Toliver Waters on the same census and he was alive and well in November 1850 at age 69 It appears that the correct date for Larkin Tolliver's Father Robert's birth is 1781 in Virginia, not 1794

I'm a little dissappointed today. I discovered that Robert Waters born in 1794 in Virginia is a different Robert William Waters that was born in 1781 in Virginia. Also Someone had tied Robert Waters born in 1794 as being the brother of William Aris Waters born in 1792, I think that was the only connection, because William Aris and all his siblings were born in North Carolina with the exception of one and Robert Waters died in Kentucky. I don't think they link up, but I'm happy to be proven wrong. We thought we had broken through a line because John Calvin Waters and Mary Elizabeth Leigh looked like the next link up that went back a couple generations. The good news is i did find this which was very intriguing and think it has potential to tie in the "Born in Virginia" line
