William & Esther Watzman on lines 65 & 66 of this page. I'm specifically interested

their parents. I also can't read William's occupation in Column 19."

It appears to me that all three birth columns for William show Russia Yiddish and
for Esther they are Russia Polish (which is lined out) and Yiddish. The
Enumerator's J's and Y's seem interchangeable throughout this page.

As for his occupation it looks like he was the proprietor of a Gents Furnishings

Hope this helps.
