Dear Mr. Watters,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a digitized file unit for a Private William Watters - 2nd Virginia Regiment from the Compiled Service Records of Soldiers Who Served in the American Army During the Revolutionary War, 1894-1912 in War Department Collection of Revolutionary War Records (Record Group 93). Plus, we located a William Watters who was a Corporal in an artillery unit on the Revolutionary War Rolls, 1894 - 1913 (also in RG 93) via Ancestry. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via a NARA PC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on Family Search at https://www.familysearch.org/en/.
The originals of both the Compiled Service Records and the Rolls are in the custody of the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1). Please contact RDT1 via email at email@example.com for more information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
I understand there is a supply tax receipt in Fold3 for William waters with one T in Amwell, Hunderdon County, NJ in 1779. William was resident in Hunderdon county 1776 thru 1780 when his son John Watters was born, after which he moved to Tell Township PA. Do you have a record for this supply tax payment ? Any other records for William Watters with one or two Ts in Hunderdon county NJ?
