About Philemon Waters, Jr.

Cited by The Waters DNA Project as having a father Philemon, born c. 1685, and a mother Mary (birth name unknown). http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/waters/pats

Negative evidence, to the effect that he is no descendant of William Waters and Dorothy Marriott, is provided by a Chancery lawsuit that ran from 1717 to 1747, enumerating said descendants. The name "Philemon" is nowhere found. http://jeanday1.tripod.com/Waters_William_Sons_Lawsuit.htm

Further evidence, both positive and negative, was provided by Y-DNA testing which showed that the Philemon Waters line is *not* a match to the John Waters of Anne Arundel line (and by extension probably not to the Edward Waters line of the Eastern Shore either - the John and Edward lines are believed to be related).

He served in the French and Indian Wars and is credited with firing the first shot at Fort Necessity at Great Meadows, near Pittsburgh, in the French and Indian War when he served under George Washington fighting with the British. He was one of South Carolina's most illustrious statesmen. An uncle of James Head. (Added by Fran De Gasta)
