From "Columbia County History Book 1982", page 330, under a listing "Waterman Family" :
Andrew Shepherd WATERMAN, like many settlers coming to this area was a Yankee, born in Baldwinsville, NY in 1827. His wife, Almira GOFF, was from St. Albans, NY.
Andrew Shepard was the first of many Watermans to open a business in Kilbourn. He and his son, Andrew Seth (Drute) purchased the Rose House in 1895 and renamed it the Hotel Waterman.... Drute and his wife Vinnie, operated the hotel... Drute and Vinnie had 6 children, all born at the hotel; Vera, Iness, Andrew III, Charlotte, Harriet, and Mary. Many ancestors of this family still live in the Wis Dells area.
