Hello, I`m looking for a complete list of the children of Jabez & Hester (Jones) Watrous. Jabez was born 1717/18 in Connecticut, probably Old Lyme/Saybrook area, the son of Jabez & Sarah (Richards) Watrous.
His wife, Hester (Jones) Watrous, was born October 11, 1726, at Saybrook, Connecticut, the daughter of Isaac & Deborah (___) Jones.
Recently, on a trip to Albany, New York State Library, I discovered a cemetery inscription of a "Hester Watrous" buried at the Old Cemetery, Waterford, Saratoga County, New York, saying she died October 12, 1800, age 71 years, & one day---which would match her up as the wife of Jabez Watrous, & the daughter of Isaac & Deborah Jones, of Saybrook.
At the same cemetery is a listing for "infant, child of "E. & P. Watrous"---this infant would be the child of Elisha & Martha ("Patsy")(Griswold) Watrous, & this infant would be a grandchild of Hester (Jones) Watrous.
I am descended from an Elisha Waters, b) 1795 at Saratoga County, New York---I don`t think he is a child of Elisha & Martha (Griswold) Watrous, but I do think there is a connection here somewhere, to this family.
If anyone has a complete list of the children of Jabez & Hester (Jones) Watrous, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
