Waters family, Cherokee heritage, Alton Illinois
My name is Brandon Waters, I’m the son of Ronnie Waters born April 5, 1946 and Sharon (Clinton) Waters born December 14, 1951. My grandfather Mr. Leo Waters worked at the old Shell Oil refinery in Alton, Illinois and lived in Brown County Illinois. He had a twin brother named Cleo Waters who I don’t know much about.
My grandma Mrs. Eva Waters was the granddaughter of an circuit court judge with the last name Crabtree who I believe was full blooded Cherokee Indian.
My father Ronnie Waters has an uncle and cousin who live in Texas, surprisingly his cousins name is also Ronnie Waters and I’ve been told could be my fathers twin, only about a foot taller than my father.
I know very little about my family heritage, family origin, history, and location of living relatives. I am hopeful to connect with family members or anyone with information or knowledge of the Waters family genealogy, or location of living Waters family members.
