Waterman, Frank (dates unknown)

Word has been received here of the death of Frank Waterman at the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Waterman, Richland Center.

Mr. Waterman, a former Town of Fremont resident, was married to Mattie Austin March 20, 1878, at Neillsville, and for several years after their marriage they lived at Neillsville and Marshfield, after which they purchased a farm west of the Village of Chili, where they resided for many years before retiring and moving to Chili.

The past few years were spent with their children, principally their son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Clark Waterman, Mosinee, and with the Wayne Watermans. Mrs. Waterman died at the Wayne Waterman home October 18, 1940.

Surviving besides Wayne, are Clark of Mosinee, Frank of Minneapolis, the Rev. Jay Waterman of Center, Iowa, and Mrs. Lottie Gibson, Abbotsford, 32 grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

I was interested to read your message re: Frank Waterman. My father (Horace Guildford) and my Grandfather (Frederick Guildford) both worked for The Waterman Pen Company1920s, 1930s and 40s. Frank Waterman was my Godfather. Over the years we lost touch. If it is the same Frank Waterman I have some very interesting photos etc. of the good old days of The Waterman Pen Company. The last I heard was when Frank was living in Connecticut,

Any information you have I would find most interesting.
