Waters, John (26 DEC 1847 - 23 DEC 1915)
Mr. John Waters was born in Eshborn, England, Dec. 26, 1847, and died at the home of S. H. Jones south of Humbird, Clark County, Wis., Dec. 23, 1915, lacking four days of being 68 years of age. Pneumonia was the cause of his death.
Mr. Waters was brought to America with his parents in infancy, and lived in Walworth until about thirty years of age. He then became a settler in Jackson Co., making his home in this neighborhood ever since, with the exception of a few years spent in South Dakota.
