What We Know


Thomas Waters, a mariner born in Marblehead, first married Alice Bartoll, the granddaughter of our direct ancestors 1105 John Bartoll and Parnell Hodder.

Thomas's daughter Jane Waters, who I knew had married John Oliver, was a frustrating genealogical brick wall for awhile. General searches for "Jane Waters, Marblehead" resulted in several finds for the Jane Waters who was the daughter of William Waters and Elizabeth Latimer. Further investigation resulted in the record of her death as a child in the 1690s.



Discovery that Thomas had moved to Salem after the early death of his first wife, Alice, led to the Salem Vital Records for Thomas "Walters" and his second wife, Mary Roundee (Roundy).

Confirmation that Thomas Walters and Thomas Waters were the same individual was aided by the listing of his first son's baptism in both Marblehead and in Salem (along with all his half siblings).

We know that Thomas was a mariner. I could find no information for his sons Thomas and William after their births, but his remaining children survived childhood and married. Although his children by Mary were all born in Salem, all those who married except one settled in Marblehead.

I coild not find a probate record for Thomas nor a death record for his wife, Mary; thereforeI'm not sure when he died. Thomas himseld was buried back in Marblehead.
