Surnames: Waters, Watters
Elias Waters or Watters was born in May 22 1797. He married Mary Clapper, they had 3 children in German township, Fayette county. There names were John P. born 1818 P. Simon also born 1818 P. and Jane born in 1821 P. Elias moved to Ohio in 1820s then moved to Allen county Indiana in 1830s. He was a very prosperous land owner and farmer. He died February 20 1855 in Allen county Ind. He is buried in Waters cemetary. Elias had bought land in German township in 1816 then sold land in 1821 and it was removed from the rolls in 1822. Elias was married to Mary Clapper, in Clapper book it shows Mary Clapper being born around 1794 in York Co. Pa. Hopewell township. It has Elias name as Walters. I do not know if this is a mistake or not. I was always told that family used to fight over whather name was Waters or Watters. Two of Elias sons would use Watters name sometimes. The Clapper name was originally Klopfer. I would appreciate any help I can get to find out who Elias parents are or who family members are. Elias had 3 more children in Ohio names are George 1824 O. Betsey 1825 O. Stephan 1833 O. Then 3 more children in Indiana Ann 1835 I. James 1837 I. Oliver 1840 I. His parents or family was never mentioned. But story was told they were from England.
