Hi Gina.
I am interested in the Waterman family - my great great aunt was a musichall and cinema performer, Cissie Loftus. Her second husband was Dr Alonzo Higbee Waterman ( there has to be a connection with a name like that !)They divorced rather acrimoniously I understand but I would be interested in any info you might have ?
Mary.

I married into the Waterman family (43 yrs ago). Our granddaughter & I have been doing Waterman research for the past couple of years. We had a head start from some family papers left to my husband. Anyway, my husband's great grandfather was named Franklin ALONZO Waterman. He was born in Johnston, RI 02/16/1844 and died in Providence, RI 04/06/1886. He married Hannah EDDY in Providence on 05/30/1867. We have not found the ALONZO name in any of our other research. I know it was common at the time to sometimes use the family Doctor's name as a middle name for a child, and I am wondering if that is the case here.
