What We Know About This Family

Thomas Waters, a mariner, married as his first wife Alice Bartoll, the granddaughter of our direct ancestors John Bartoll and Parnell Holder with whom he had one son. After her death, he removed to Salem where his second family with Mary Roundy was born. Three of their children married ancestors of this Tree.

More About Some of the Children

  • Anna married Norden Pederick and had four daughters, one of whom died young. Norden died before 11 Feb 1723 when Ann had guardianship papers signed for her daughters Jane, 10; Susannah, 4 years and 11 months,; and Mary, 2. Norden Pederick was the son of John Pederick (also spelled Petherick) and Suzanne Latimer. I cannot determine if and how he might be related to our direct ancestors John and Miriam Pedrick. I suspect he is the other Pederick or Petherick I've seen mentioned. The Latimer Waters who signed the guardianship papers was the son of Susanne's sister Elizabeth and her husband William Waters, son of William and Hannah Peach Waters. If Norden was not related to us through our Pedrick ancestor, he was related by blood to our Waters and Peach ancestors, and was a "cousin" to Ann through their mothers. There is a marriage record of an Ann Pedrick to Valentine Vaughn in 1726. The timing would be correct for a second marriage, although I cannot find verification that she is Norden's widow.

  • Jane Waters and her husband John Oliver are our direct descendants and have their own family group page.

  • Elias Waters married Mary Diamond, the brother of Aholiab Diamond. Aholiab and his wife Lydia Silsbee were the parents of a Marblehead legend, "Moll Pitcher" (Mary Diamond Pitcher), a world famous fortune teller. The Silsbees were descended from our our ancestor William Bassett through their daughter Rachel.

  • John Waters married Bethiah Martin, who was probably the daughter of Robert Martin (son of John and Sarah Northy Martin) and Bethia Bartlett (granddaughter of William Bartlett and John Devereux.

The genealogical and vital records are our best proof of relationship.

What Else We Need to Learn

The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.

The research on this family is basically complete. A later re-check might reveal some of the missing dates.
