Waters, Harrison P., Aurora, p. o. West Falls, born in Aurora, N. Y., November 6, 1813, is a son of Thurston and Julia (Henshaw) Waters, who came from Rutland county, Vt., to Hamburg in 1803. His father was a farmer and came to Aurora in 1810 and settled on a farm near where West Falls now stands; he was killed by the falling of a tree in 1834, and his wife died in 1838. Harrison P. Waters was reared on a farm and educated in the common school. He learned the shoemaker's trade and carried on the boot, shoe and grocery business at West Falls for over thirty years. He has owned several farms which he has sold and now leads a retired life. He married, March 18, 1841, Angeline Cutter, and she died in October, 1888; they had four children: Julia (wife of James M. Francis of West Falls), Angeline, (wife of Albert Haight, judge of the Court of Appeals of Buffalo, N. Y.), Henry H. (of Buffalo, N. Y., engaged in the manufacture of metallic bedsteads), and Lucius W. (died in December, 1893). Mr. Waters was a Whig and is now a Democrat. He has been justice about twenty years, postmaster for three years, and was constable and deputy sheriff; he was also a member of the Board of Excise of the town of Aurora for nine years; has voted at every election since 1834, including sixteen presidential elections; his last presidential vote was for Palmer & Buckner and honest money.
