Which Thomas Willoughby Walters (1736-1810)
Is The Right Walters?
As the reader can see around this period of time the world is suddenly full of persons named Williams Walters and his son Thomas Walters. While it is known that Thomas Willoughby Walters is the right ancestor for the rest of my family tree exactly which of these lines is the right line? Missing family or partial records and 2 major wars fought in Virginia and South Carolina which destroyied many civil records may leave the question open of which line is the right line.

Which Family Line is Correct?
1. A leap of faith is that the correct Walters was married toEllen Schoppert (1744-1820) and in fact the Decendents of John Waters family line may be the right one. The person Thomas Willoughby Waters changed his name to Walters because he was decendenat of Birtish Military Officers and would have upon capture been hung as an outright traitor

2. Another family line might be William Walters B 1682 from Camenshire Wales who moved to South Carolina and as a decendent of nobility would have both the financial resources and training to operate a planatation. No record has been found yet that he had a son Thomas.

3. Walters family tradiiton held that the Walters came from Archibald Watters, to William Walters B 1699. Unfortunately William Walters who was a blacksmith died and is buried in Scotland in 1737 next to his wife and of course cannot be the William Walters cited so often in Halifax County Virginia.

The Old Walters Family Bible
Cites First Walters in America

According to the Walters Family Bible at Daughters of American Revolution Mrs.Louis Walters of Duram, NC which states: "The first Walters in this country of "our clan" was William Waltes. He was born about 1680 either in Wales or Holland. My best guess is that William Walters Oct 11, 1682 Married Bef 1677 (Carmarthenshire ,Wales 1680) who disappeared off the family chart.
