- Thomas Cornell Waters was born 1793 in New York, the son of Thomas Waters and Bridget Mathews. As a young man he removed to Sussex county New Jersey, where he met and married Emeline Darrah in 1823. She was the daughter of William Darrah and Elizabeth Edsel of the town of Hamburg, in Sussex county New Jersey. There is some confusion as to when and where Thomas Cornell Waters died. Some researchers have recorded his death as 1 Dec 1834, which is clearly the death date of his father, Thomas Waters. Records and family insights suggest that Thomas Cornell Waters and Emeline Darrah were the parents of one son, William Henry Waters born in 1831. Members of the Darrah family removed to Missouri about 1837. They appear to have gone first to Palmyra in Marion county Missouri, and then on to St Louis. It is not clear whether Thomas C Waters was still living at that time and went with them, but by the 1850 census Emeline Darrah Waters, widow, and her son Henry Williams Waters are living in St Louis Missouri.
