Someone recently referred me to your website and I thank you for it. It has helped clarify a number of things for me.
I am descended from Asa Waters, the presumed son of Archer and Edy Walters/Waters.
Asa married first Tabitha Grant, daughter or Charles and Mary R. Bradshaw Grant of Halifax co. VA.She was the mother of all his children. She died in Montgomery co. TN after the 1850 census, but before the 1860. Asa then married Lucy Jane Buckley of Montgomery county. He died in 1869 and Lucy lived another thirty years.
I descend from Asa and Tabitha's son Edwin Cincinnatus Waters, a confederate soldier and longtime member of the Montgomery County court (1895 until his death in 1907).
The children of Asa and Tabitha from the records of Montgomery county Tennessee are:
Charles (1823-1871) m. Nancy Ford
Abner (1824- before 1865) m. Sarah Ann Yarbrough
Mary (1825) m. Edmund P. Halay
Asa J. (1832-1859) m. Henny (Henrietta) Parrish
Joseph H. (b. 1836) m. Emily J. Epperson
Edwin C. (b. 1838-1907) m. Sarah Ann Meacham
Robert (b. further information
Sarah b. 1848- 1920 m. James E. Pegram-they relocated to McCracken Co. (Paducah) Kentucky
These children were born over a period of 25 years!!

From Montgomery County, TN compiled by the Montgomery Co. Historical Society, Turner Publishing Co, 2000; p.328
Article on Asa Walters/Waters with dates of b. 1795, d. 1868. Said to have been born Pittsylvania Co, VA, moved to Montgomery Co, TN settling in the Port Royal neighborhood. Prior to 1850, he sold that farm and moved to the Liberty Community.
His will dated 4 Feb 1868, was presented for probate in September of the same year.
