The 1930 census is interesting for this family. William Woodson Waters was born in Georgia. He was about 10 years older than his wife. His parents were both from Georgia.
Ella was from NC along with her parents. Elizabeth age 2 was born in NC, Mae was age 10 born in NC, son William age 8 was born in VIRGINIA, Calvin and son James both born in NC.
In 1920 the Waters family had a stepson living with them by the name of James T. Brown age 8. In 1900 ED 81 Militia District 1073, Buncombe, Polk, Georgia, I found William Waters, son of William Waters. His siblings were Henry, Tatum and James.
