Waters/Watters - sorry, don't have website but got a story.
Familiar naming customs run the gamut. Always been curious who, what, where folks came up with middle names. My great uncle was Cleveland Greenberry Boles.- the Green- Berry part always fascinated me. There were Greens and Berrys but no Greenberrys. Always wanted to know if it was one or two people that inspired his given name. Waters/Watters always perked my ears up too. No others kinfolks known to have that name on lengthy reports. Some years ago found possible answer - seems there was a local doctor by the name and held in such high esteem that namesakes appeared far and near. So when you are out looking, might help to use "Dr." or "MD" in the search.
Talking out loud - Marsha
