"Cousin John Waters" would be John Waters of "Waters Lotte", Anne Arundel County, MD, who named his first son (born 1721) Richard. This is evidence that the Somerset County Waters family was in contact with the Anne Arundel family and at least considered themselves to be, if they were not in fact, related.
