From town and private records, and from papers carefully collected by 

JUDGE LOREN P. WALDO, (deceased) of Hartford, Ct., 
CHARLES E. WALDO, of Canon City, Col., 
MRS. S. G. WATERS, of E. Randolph, Vt. 





In this genealogy and biography perfection is not claimed, 
for the means at hand did not warrant a thorough work, such 
as we should have been glad to issue. Nevertheless, we be- 
lieve it sufficient to show the direct lineage of any descendant 
of the first Waldo of America, if the name should have been 
overlooked. So far as possible each branch has been completed, 
some reaching to the last, the tenth generation, others only to 
the sixth and seventh generations. A work of this kind, 
though incomplete, forms a sure basis for a more perfect one 
some time in the future, when the interest of the whole family 
is more awakened on the subject. Biographical sketches have 
been sought for, and as many as could be procured have been 
inserted, that we might acquaint ourselves with the acquisi- 
tions of our ancestors, for such knowledge generally establishes 
a foundation upon which posterity builds, and improves if pos- 
sible. Though the past generations have shown a record that 
kindles pride in the hearts of their descendants, and we have 
perfect faith in those yet to come, keeping in mind the facts 
concerning the family that animate and merit pride will do no 
harm, but rather tend to a still stronger growth, for man is 
but man no matter whatever blood courses his veins. Gold- 
smith says, " Man seems the only growth that dwindles here," 
and then reiterates the fact that there must be either advance- 
ment or retrogression : 

" For, as refinement stops from sire to son, 
Unalter'd, unimprov'd the manners run." 

The late Judge Loren P. Waldo, who, previous to the war, 
had thought of publishing a work similar to this one, had col- 
lected papers giving the descendants of Edward Waldo, Jr., 
for several generations, besides other information. Charles E. 
Waldo gave the descendants of Jesse Waldo, and Mrs. S. G. 
Waters the descendants of Abner Waldo. 


To prevent confusion, if the reader will note each chapter, 
excepting the first, begins with one of the children of Corne- 
lius Waldo, the first generation in America, and that the de- 
scendants of each follow in a direct line, beginning with the 
first born of each family and continuing to his or her last de- 
scedant, then returning to the next younger and repeat the 
same, there will be no misunderstanding. In the case where 
several bear the same name, their wives maiden names will 
help to distinguish them, outside of the generation, which will 
generally be found sufficient. 


The Waldo Family. 

The name Waldo, which has figured in history for six hun- 
dred years, originated with a family of France, one member of 
which was the noted Pierre de Vaax, or Peter Waldo, of 
Lyons. Hence the established belief that he was the first 
recorded ancestor of this great family that has come down to 
the present day, retaining many of the striking qualities that 
characterized him and his people. He received his sur-name 
from the place of his nativity, the town of Waldum or Vaux, 
near the city of Lyons. He was the leader of the sect of Wal- 
denses which had existed, for some time previous to his uniting 
with them, in quiet opposition to the Roman church, but after 
he joined them gained the reputation as the first founder of that 
body, and it may be truly said that he spread new life among 
them, for they came out openly and renounced papal power, 
he being their strong advocate and protector. He lost no op- 
portunity to oppose the pope openly, and though warned to 
cease his preaching continued the same. In preaching he took 
pains to prove his doctrines, always avoiding all unnatural 
form, and asserted boldly that the i " church of Rome was in a 
state of apostasy from the true faith of the gospel ; that she 


was the harlot of Babylon, and the barren fig-tree which our 
Lord cursed ; that we are not bound to obey the pope, who is 
not the true head of the church ; that monasticism is like cor- 
rupt carrion, and has the mark of the beast; and that masses 
and purgatory, the dedication of temples, and the worship of 
the saints are inventions of the devil." He was a rich mer- 
chant, and distributed his goods freely to the poor. William 
Hodgson's "History of Martys, etc.," contains an extended 
account of the Waldenses and their leader. 

The following is evidence that Thomas and not Peter, was 
the first known ancestor of the Waldos. He was probably a 
brother of Peter, and was also identified with the Waldenses : 

According to Hasted, in his history of Kent, " this family 
is said to be descended from Thomas Waldo, of Lyons, in 
the Kingdom of France, one of the first who publicly renounced 
the doctrines of the Court of Rome. One of his descendants, 
in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, to escape the persecutions of 
the Duke D'Alva, came over from the Netherlands to England, 
where his descendants afterwards settled." In a house belong- 
ing to one of the representatives of the Waldo family, situated 
at Mitchans, in Surrey, England, there still exists a handsome 
carved oak wainscotting, with a curious oak chimney-piece, 
the cornice of the wainscot being a broad border of oak, richly 
carved with acorns, oak leaves and grapes, with the name 
"Peter Waldo" cut thereon, with the date 1575 or 1573, the 
last figure being dim, making it uncertain. The mistake about 
Peter Waldo being the first known ancestor may have originated 
from this second Peter, who was evidently a descendant of 
Thomas Waldo. It appears the celebrated Peter Waldo was 
never married, but he left at least two brothers, one of whom 
died a galley slave, and the other on his way to Bohemia, 
where, also, Peter died in 1179. (Letter dated March 3, 1863^ 
from Rev. J. C. Goussier, British Chaplin at Lyons.) From 
1575 to 1654 no records have been found relative to the family. 



Cornelius Waldo, the first by that name permanently located 
in this country, came from England and settled in Ipswich, 
Mass., according to " Savage's Genealogy of Early Settlers", 
in 1654. Married Hannah, daughter of John and Eliza Coggs- 
well. Children : John, Cornelius, Daniel, Rebecca, Jona- 

Dea. Waldo removed, in 1655 or 1657, to Chelmsford, 
Mass. The records refer to him constantly as deacon. He 
was deacon of a church there during his life, of which Rev. 
Mr. Fiske was pastor. He owned considerable real estate in 
Chelmsford, and was at one time an inn-keeper there ; and 
the spacious, comfortable old tavern, with its hospitable land- 
lard, was a favorite among the traveling public of that remote 
day, when, instead of the steam coach, the "four-in-hand" 
came rolling up to the door at regular intervals, when the gen- 
eral overturning of baggage and turning out of passengers 
indicated a short respite and a few hours or night's rest for the 
weary traveler. Many prominent personages stopped at the 
inn. It is quite probable the Rev. Edward Bulkley died there. 
He also owned a farm in North Chelmsford, Mass., where he 
settled his son Daniel, who built a grist mill on it in 1695, at 
the mouth of Stony Brook, below the way that leads to Dun- 
stable, Mass. A grist mill and saw mill were standing upon 
this spot as late as 1820. The deacon was a leading man in 
Chelmsford. He died in 1701, June or Jan. 3. His property 
was divided among his children. 




John Waldo, son of Dea. Cornelius, was born, probably, 
in Chelmsford ; married Rebecca, the daughter of Samuel 
Adams, about 1676, who was of the same line as that of John 
Adams, the President of the United States. Mr. Adams was 
a man of wealth, owning 600 acres of land in Chelmsford, 
Mass. Children, 3rd generation: John, Edward, Rebecca, 
Catherine, Ruth, Sarah, Abigail. 

John was representative from Dunstable, Mass., in 1689 — 
short session. He removed at the u time of the Indian war" 
to Windham, Conn., and there died in 1700. His will of the 
14th of April, 1700, names Rebecca, his wife, son John, and 
refers to other children not named. His inventory was £290, 
07s., besides the estate at Chelmsford. A deed, signed by one 
Larabee, Jan. 2, 1699, to John Waldo, of Windham, is evidence 
that he was living there at that time. Another deed to him 
from Richard Edgarton, dated Jan. 4, 1698, gives his residence 
as Boston. Probably settled in Windham during that year. 
His residence in town of Windham was between Windham 


village and Willimantic, on the east side of the river, on the 
place afterwards owned by Roger Bingham and descendants. 
Joh.ll Waldo, Jr., son of John Waldo and Rebecca 
Adams, was born in Chelmsford, Mass., May 19, 1678. We 
have been unable to secure anything of value concerning John, 
Jr. Probably had no descendants. Removed to Boston after 
the death of his father. 

Dea. Edward ^Waldo? son of John Waldo and 
Rebecca Adams, born 16S3, died 1767; married Thankful, 
daughter of Shubael Dimock, of Mansfield, Conn., June 28. 
1706. She was born 16S5, died 1 757- Children, 4th genera- 
tion : Shubael, Edward, Jr., Cornelius, Ann, John, Bethuel, 
Thankful, Joanna, Zacheus, John. Edward was deacon of 
the Congregational church in Scotland. The towns of Wind- 
ham and Scotland were one for many years. After the town 
was divided the part containing Windham village and Willi- 
mantic retained the original name of Windham. 

There is a document in Hartford, Conn., the original appli- 
cation of sundry citizens of the town of Windham, Conn., for 
a new county, under date of May, 1 723, signed by the above- 
named Edward Waldo. He was an extensive farmer of that 
town. Edward and his wife, Thankful Dimock, w T ere buried 
in Scotland, Conn., in what is known as the "Pahnertown 
Burying-ground." He built a house in the town of Scotland, 
near the county line, about the year 1J14- The house is 
still standing, and owned by a descendant. 

Shubael Waldo* son of Edward Waldo and Thank- 
ful Dimock, married Abigail Allen, of Mansfield, Conn., Oct. 
14, 1730. Children, 5th generation : Samuel, Shubael, Abia- 
thar, Jesse, Jonathan, Thankful, Edward, Daniel, Mary, 
Abigail, Beulah, Ruth, Rebecca, Calvin. 

Shubael removed, from Windham to Alstead, N. H., in 
1768, where many of his descendants now live.

This Jesse was a farmer, and lived on a farm about a mile 
from the old homestead, and three miles from the village of 
Prattsburg, in Pulteney township, Steuben county, N. Y. 
His brothers, with the exception of Edmund, all lived on farms 
in the immediate vicinity, and at one time there were nearly 
seventy of their children all living at home, near Prattsburg. 

Rev. Levi F- YV^aldo, son of Jesse Waldo and Mary 
Fay, married Aug. 22, 1844, at Keene, N. H., to Lucy Eliza- 
beth, daughter of Calvin and Sophia (Dickey) Fay, who was 



born Nov. 17, 1816, at Prattsburg, N. Y., died March 3, 1877, 
Frankfort, Mich. Children, 9th generation : Charles Edward,

Levi married for his second wife, July 23, 1878, Silence 
Paddock (Hard) Cady, daughter of Rev. J. H. and Matilda 
H. (Barker) Hard, widow of James F. Cady, who was born 
Aug. 20, 1829, Sardinia, N. Y. She had ten children by her 
first husband. 

Levi is a graduate of Union College, N. Y., and went 
through a course of study for the ministry in a theological sem- 
inary in New York city. He was first settled over a Congre- 
gational church in Poughkeepsie, N. Y. He is now preach- 
ing for the Congregational church of Shelby, Mich. 

Charles Edward, son of Levi, is a lawyer in Canon City, 
Col., and County Judge of Fremont county. He is interested 
in the genealogy of his people, and collected a good deal of 
material for this part of the work, which was kindly furnished 
us by his brother Edmund, who had the papers. 

Edmund Hovey ^Waldo, son of Rev. Levi Wal- 
do and Lucy Fay, telegraph operator, of Boston, married Nov. 
17, 1880, at Keene, N. H., to Mary Ida, daughter of George

1859, Walpole, N. H. Children, 10th generation : Charles 
Elmon, born Sept. 7, 1881, at Keene, N. H. ; George How- 
ard, born May 6, '83, Charlestown, Mass., died June 22, same 

This branch of the family, the descendants of Jesse and 
Mary, have lost one very distinguishing^ characteristic of the 
Waldos — the dark features, hair and eyes. This is due to 
the infusion of the Fay blood, the last three generations having 
each married Fays, or descendants of them.

" Otis graduated at Union College, Schenectady, N. Y., in 
1843. In 1844 took the stump for Henry Clay and whig party. 
After election went South and studied law with Gen. John A. 
Quitman of Natchez, Miss. In 1849 moved to Milwaukee, 
Wis., and began to practice law. He was a candidate for 
mayor later on, but was defeated as the city was of adverse 
politics. Several years after he was a candidate for the U. S. 
Senate, but was beaten by Matt Carpenter. He was for many 
years President of the Wisconsin Central Railroad, and much 
of its prosperity is due to his efforts. When he received the 
news of his mother's death, the telegram announcing the sad 
fact to him was placed in his hands as he was about to begin a 
two hour's plea before a jury in Madison, Wis., Friday after- 
noon. He finished his plea and took the first train east, reach- 
ing Buffalo too late Saturday night to get a train for Corning, the 
nearest railroad station. He jumped aboard a starting train on 
the N. Y. Central, alighting at Palmyra, Wayne Co., about 35 
miles from Prattsburg. A driving snow storm was raging but 
he chartered a livery team and undertook to reach home in 
time for the funeral. It was a terrible drive, and so formida- 
ble were the obstacles, so frequent the capsizes that they only 
reached the village as the people were returning from the cem- 


eteiy. Grevious to him was the mishap. This midwinter 
journey evinced a characteristic affection for his mother, and 
showed with what energy he performed all duties of this life."

" Abner Waldo at the age of fourteen years, as was cus- 
tomary in those days, was bound out to a man in Walpole, N. 
H., to learn the tailor's trade. He was to serve an apprentice- 
ship of seven years, or until he should become twenty-one 
years of age, but he bought one year of his time of his master, 
(an appelation that was given the man of whom he learned his 
trade). He then started on foot to seek his fortune in Ver- 
mont, taking with him all the treasures that he possessed, 
which consisted of a change of linen tied up in a pocket hand- 


kerchief, and a pair of shears in his pocket. On his way to 
Vermont he stopped at a farm house where he found an op- 
portunity to make a suit of clothes, for which he received as a 
compensation twenty shillings. To express it in his own 
words, he said ' no nabob ever felt richer than he did at that 
time with the first money he had ever earned for himself.' 
Subsequently, he came to East Randolph, Vt., where he made 
a permanent settlement. The town was then in its infancy, 
and the state nearly a wilderness. Here he worked at his 
trade a few years with success, and as the town grew, he grew 
with it. He then relinquished his trade, bought him a farm 
on which he lived until nearly the close of his earthly life. He 
had many hardships to encounter and battle with in the new 
country, but he conquered them all and worked his way up 
step by step, until he rose to eminence, and was one of the 
staunch and prominent men of the town. For nearly forty 
years he held many public offices of trust in the town of Ran- 
dolph. He owed his success to his own exertions, good judg- 
ment and ability. At the age of twenty-one he married Sally 
Goss, of East Randolph, and fifteen children were born to 
them, all of whom lived to be men and women."

Daniel was a blacksmith and farmer. His grandson, Rev. 
J. C. Waldo, states, " He was low in stature, thick-set, broad 
in chest and shoulders, very muscular, quick in understanding, 
scrupulously honest, and very orthodox. He would mount 
his horse by the stirrup from the ground as nimbly as a boy a 
month before his death, which was caused by an epidemic 


fever. His wife was unusually large, weighing 240 pounds, 
and not over-burdened with flesh. I have seen her take a bar- 
rel of cider from the rear of the cart and place it, quietly, upon 
the ground. She had the advantage of her husband in height, 
and had they ever come to blows (which I trust was never 
true of them) my grandfather, though a giant in strength, 
would certainly have had the worst of it. There is an anec- 
dote about mv grandmother Hannah, which I recollect, when 
a mere child, to have heard the old folks (Edward and his 
wife, when on a visit to my grandparents) make themselves 
merry over. There was an unlucky Wight living near to 
grandfather, who occasionally indulged too freely with the 
bottle. In a state of partial intoxication he called at the house. 
Grandfather being away, he expressed himself in a rather rude 
manner to my grandmother, whereupon she seized the offender 
(a man of average size) by the back of his neck and panta- 
loons, and extending him at arms length, ran with him over 
the road and plunged him into a goose-pond." Daniel and 
his wife both lived and died in Chesterfield, N. H. 

Eunice Waldo, daughter of Daniel and Hannah, 
born Aug. 20, 1769. 

Roswell Waldo, son of Daniel and Hannah, born 
April 20, i77 3 ' married and lived in Rutland, Vt., but later 
settled near Cleveland, O. He had four children, 7th genera- 
tion. He resembled his father in countenance, and adhered to 
his father's politics and Presbyterian ideas. 

Diantha Waldo, daughter of Daniel and Hannah, 
born March 13, 1775. 

Sliubael Waldo, son of Daniel Waldo and Hannah 
Carlton, born May 2, 1777; married Rebecca Crosby, of Al- 
stead, N. II. Children, 7th generation : Daniel, Josiah Cros- 
by, James Elliot, George Curtis, Albeit Carlton, Rosalie Mel- 
vina. Shubael died Oct. 6, 1S59. 


'• He was a farmer of steady habits, strong common sense, 
and naturally of a very cheerful and happy disposition. ' Un- 
cle Snub.,' as he was familiarly called was a favorite with 
young and old, for his humor and inexhaustable fund of stories 
and anecdotes. His death was occasioned by being thrown 
from his carriage, as was supposed. He never had a physi- 
cian until that time." 

Daniel Waldo, son of Shubael Waldo and Rebecca 
Crosby, born in Alstead, N. H., Jan. 6, 1S02 ; married Maria 
Mabel Baker, resides at Morgan Co., 111. ; was married three 
times. Children, 8th generation : Mabel, Maria Elmina, Eva, 
James, too other sons. 

u Daniel was a man of his own mind. In mere boyhood 
he repudiated his family's politics and religion, and became a 
warm Democrat and Universalist. He was appointed Post- 
master by Jackson, and held the place until he removed to Illi- 
nois. His ambition was to become the largest farmer in his 
county. He owned 5,000 acres, chiefly of bottom land on the 
Illinois river, and mostly improved. Rev. J. C. Waldo states 
the year he visited his brother Daniel he had under his own 
care 1000 acres of corn, 200 of wheat, and 75 of rye. The 
year before he raised 45,000 bushels of corn." 

Rev. Josiah. Crosby Waldo, son of Shubael 
Waldo and Rebecca Crosby, born Dec. 5, 1803, or '04; mar- 
ried Elmira Ruth Ballou, 4th daughter of Rev. Hosea Ballon 
of Boston, Oct., 1830. Children, 8th generation : Ella Fidu- 
cia, Oliver, George Curtis, C. Grace, Frances Rebecca, Matu- 
rin Ballou. 

Rev. J. C. Waldo, to whom we are indebted for nearly all 
the quotations concerning Shubael Waldo's descendants, was 
educated in the Presbyterian faith. He had been contemplat- 
ing a change in religious matters for some time, but had not 
quite decided everything in his own mind, when the sudden 


death of his mother ended the controversy. He says: " My 
mother, though one of the best of that hallowed name, and 
universally beloved, had never made a profession of religion, 
and for that cause, the Presbyterian minister, Rev. John Wal- 
ker, who attended her funeral, very charitably consigned her 

to — ! This day's work settled the fate of orthodoxy for 

me. It was standing by her grave that day, while the wound 
the priest had inflicted was fresh and bleeding, that I made a 
vow to be revenged by devoting my life to blowing the obnox- 
ious creed sky-high. I have kept the vow to this hour." He 
studied under Rev. Hosea Ballon. He preached in Boston 
and vicinity for two years, then went to Cincinnati, O. He 
found the leading men of that city ready to aid in establishing 
a liberal church. A meeting-house was built for him the first 
year. The same year he commenced the publication of a 
weekly paper, " The Sentinel and Star in the West," which 
is published to this day. His work was extensive there. 
"During his five years' stay in Cincinnati, he preached in all 
the large cities and principal towns in Ohio, Indiana, Ken- 
tucky, and to some extent in Virginia and Tennessee. He 
published over one hundred controversial sermons, held a 
number of public debates, and planted the seeds of the new 
faith, first, and generally in the West." It was not unusual 
for him to preach four times in a day. While in Lynn, Mass., 
where he established two flourishing societies, he was attacked, 
from excessive speaking, with a disease of the throat and 
lungs, which threatened, for three years, as he says, " to end 
my war of words at least against orthodoxy, and for Univer- 
salism." He afterward recovered, and accepted a call for the 
third society in Cambridge, Mass.,- where he remained eight 
years. Then went to Troy, N. Y., and there remained and 
labored six years. On account of his wife's health he then 
removed to New London. His wife was accustomed to 
write poetical articles for the periodicals of the day. The last 

4 6 


she ever attempted was a few weeks before her death, which 
happened on the 29th of June, 1850. The following is her 
last poem : 

The Ideal of the Spiritual. 

The lofty walls are tapestried superbly 

With scenes of glory, changing evermore; 
And light, not of the sun or moon, is streaming 

O'er golden dome and tesselated floor. 

Far-reaching aisles, with everlasting pillars, 
And jewelled pavement mortal foot ne'er prest; 

Such is the inner temple, at whose altar 
My weary spirit folds her wings to rest. 

It is a haunted spot — a spell is o'er it. 

And all around, on terrace, lake and tree, 
Enchanting bird-notes mingle with the perfume 

Of flowers, that bloom to live eternally! 

I said 'twas haunted — not in the old fashion, 
By restless spirits, whose coming I shall fear — 

But by angel forms of the true-hearted, 
Who seek my earthly pilgrimage to cheer. 

I see their radiant smiles, and hear their voices, 

In dear familiar tones, repeat my name; 
Fond arms encircle me, and joy ecstatic 

Pervades my soul, and thrills my trembling frame! 

Some smile, when I describe this habitation, 

And say I am deceived — but well I know, 
That He who gave me powers for such creation, 

Would never mock my yearning spirit so! 

Not half so real is my outward being, 

Wearing itself away in earthly strife ; 
While stronger, brighter, grows this blest ideal — 

The sacred earnest of eternal life.

Bud of promise, precious flower, 
Thou art withered in an hour; 
Early call'd to yield thy breath, 
Thou art lovely e'en in death. 

Jesus gave, he took away; 
Bore thee hence to realms of dav; 
Where thy beauties may expand, 
Nurtured by his tender hand. 

In his glorious, happy home, 
Evermore in freshness bloom ; 
Bud of promise, precious gem, 
Deck thy Saviour's diadem.

gregational pulpit. All through his long public life he has 
been a continuous worker, and his aim to always make works 
practical and beneficial, deserves the highest praise. In 1882, 
in his eightieth year, he began the publication of a new method 
of studying the English Grammar, which is considered by 
teachers as eclipsing anything of the kind known. He remov-

Doa. Enoch Wight A^aldo, son of John Elder- 
kin Waldo and Benlah Foster was born in Hampton, Conn., 
July 14, 1S05 ; married Sophronia, daughter of James and 
Sarah (Downing) Bingham, Oct. 10, 1831, who was born in 
Canterbury, Conn., April 27, 1S09. Children, 8th generation : 
Sarah Cornelia, Amelia Ann, Marietta, Seth Harden, Sophro- 
nia Elizabeth, Lucinda, Enoch Wight, Adaliza. 

Dea. Waldo followed farming the greater part of his life on 
the old homestead farm in Waldo district, at the Waldo four- 
corners in town of Canterbury, Conn. He taught school there 
a number of years ; held many town offices, and was represen- 
tative from Canterbury in 1856. He was deacon of the Con- 
gregational church of Westminster, and was a leading man in 
the town. While a member of the State militia, he nearly 
lost his life at a general training by the premature discharge of 
a field piece. He was a strong Republican, and a staunch 
patriot. He delighted in Revolutionary history, which he read 
with the deepest feeling. At the warmest period of the civil 
war, when the subject was freely discussed by enthusiastic 
Northerners in both town and country, its necessities, success, 
prospects, etc., he by chance was forced into a conversation 
with a neighbor who had been advancing rather unpatriotic 
sentiments, and in course of the talk, declared the "Northern- 
ers had no right to proceed South and destroy their neighbors 
and brothers, but should allow them to do as they pleased, so 
far as they had agreed by legislation, and their public senti- 
ment," and in that strain he continued until the debate waxed 
strong and warm, when the deacon, who seldom allowed his 
temper to rise, could stand it no larger, declared " if he, 
though a friend and neighbor, should take arms to destroy this 
glorious union, bought by the sacred blood of the fathers, and 
established in the name of Jehovah as a free and independent 
country that their posterity might enjoy union and liberty 


thenceforth, he would shoot him as he would a dog." Senti- 
ments like this were only characteristic of his nature. He died 
in Canterbury, March 2, 1877. Hewas a man of massive form 
but of average height, of even temper, strong personal charac- 
ter, and just in all his dealings. He had a wonderful retentive 
memory, and could quote Scripture, in which he was well read, 
to apply to most any subject to more successfully enforce a 
point. Both young and old delighted in listening to his ever 
ready anecdote or story. Frequently, in the absence of the 
pastor at Westminster, he would take the lead of the service, 
and preach a goodly sermon after his own sound ideas. 


In imagination we see him now, 
With his massive form and manly brow, 
As, at the breaking of the dawn, 
He plods along from house to barn. 

He has crossed the highway that intervenes, 
And passed the knoll with its dress of green; 
Now the murmur of the stock we hear, 
Expressing impatience as feast-time draws near. 

As we watch him steadily on his return, 
Laden with the product for the churn, 
Is it a break in his walk that we discern? 
Yes, but his step is strong and firm. 

Later, we see him at the sacred board, 
Asking a blessing on the bounties of God ; 
Reading the Bible, offering prayer, 
All in the circle receiving their share. 

Again we behold him a man among men, 
Ready always to rise but never descend — 
Now, bidding farewell to this domain, 
He leaves with us all a golden name.

the assistance she could in helping her son complete the book. 
She possesses many of the good qualities of her father, being 
duly resolute in all ways that she believes just ; a strong tem-

same sentiment. She is a member of the Methodist Church 
of Danielsonville, which she joined while a young woman.

The Stearns house, now owned and occupied by Joseph 
Hall, in which his children all lived during their young days, 
was built during the early part of the u hundred years Indian 
war," or about 1696, according to Isaac T. Hutch ins, an old 
resident of Danielsonville, who claims to know its history. 
It was built in that place by a Dea. Stearns, of Mansfield, Ct. 
He sold it to Dr. Walton, a wealthy, hot-headed Tory, who 
was obliged to abscond to Canada during the Revolutionary 
war, to escape the wrath of the " sons of liberty." He sold 
all his possessions, and the house then became the property of 
Dr. Fuller, who became wealthy by being a surgeon on board 
of a privateer during the war. He sold the house to Dr. 
Penuel Hutchins, and finally died a pauper in Attleboro', 
Mass., losing his property by extravagant living. After the 
death of Dr. Hutchins, the house was owned by his son Isaac, 
who sold it to Joseph Bates, he disposing of it to Dea. Leonard 
Burgess, who moved it from the original site on Main street, 
to its present location on Hutchins street, when Mr. Hall 
bought it, and beautified it by enclosing it with trees. The 
house is the same in shape as when first built, with the excep- 
tion of an addition of a few feet on the west end, and jets 
which were not built in those days. The frame is of enor- 
mous oak timbers, seemingly as sound to-day as ever. A 
view within shows its antiquity more than without, from the 
beams projecting into the rooms.

After her public profession of religion in her nineteenth year, 
when she united with the Congregational church, her earnest- 
ness Tbecame more intense to obtain a higher education, in or- 
der "that site might be able to be more useful to the world. 
She 'left home and attended an academy in eastern New York,

school she received, with two others, a certificate of extraor- 
dinary merit in scholarship and proper demeanor. She then 
went to Amherst, Mass., where she studied the classics under 
her brother's instruction, he being a student in the college 
there, and attended two courses of lectures delivered by Prof.

Hon. Loren Waldo's life was an eventful one. k ' His edu- 
cation, so far as it was obtained from schools and instructors, 
(except while studying law) was completed when he was 
fourteen years of age. From that time until he was twenty- 
one he taught school every winter, devoting the rest of the 
time to labor on his father's farm. His zeal for knowledge 
could not be quenched, and all this while he applied himself 
in every leisure hour, to study, and in this way mastered the 
higher branches of mathematics, and acquired a good knowl- 
edge of Latin. He carried Hodge's Logic with him into the 
fields, and in the brief intervals of labor mastered its contents. 




He left home when twenty-one and entered upon the study of 
law with his uncle in the town of Tolland, at the same time 
earning his living. At the age of 23 he was admitted to the 
bar by the county court of Tolland county at the September 
term in 1825. Beginning life under most discouraging aus- 
pices, with his courage and persistence he surmounted all ob- 
stacles, and rose to fill places of trust and honor. He was 
postmaster in Somers two years, and held town offices. 
He was Representative from the town of Tolland for 6 years, 
1832, '33, '34, 39, 47, 48. In 1 849 he was elected to represent 
his district in the 31st Congress of the United States. He was 
chairman on the committee on revolutionary pensions. Dur- 
ing President Pierce's administration he was appointed Com- 
missioner of Pensions at Washington, in which service he 
continued until elected Judge of the Superior Court of Con- 
necticut for a term of eight years. About the year 1863 Judge 
Waldo removed from Tolland to Hartford, where he pursued 
the practice of his profession, at first in partnership with his 
son-in-law, A. P. Hyde, Esq., and more recently in the well- 
known firm of Waldo, Hubbard & Hyde." In politics he 
was a Democrat, and gave its candidates and measures his cor- 
dial and generous support. He wrote, in 1861, a history of 
Tolland. After his death the Hartford County Bar introduced 
resolutions highly applauding his life-work and lamenting the 
loss of so great a friend and public benefactor. He gathered a 
great deal of material some time before his death for the gene- 
alogy of this great family, and promised to prepare all he had 
for the press, but soon after died. His daughter kindly fur- 
nished all his papers for our perusal relative to this subject.

Gen. GofF has led an almost continuous public life. At the 
time of the war he, with his whole family, took sides with the 
Union, and in May, 1861, enlisted as a private in company G, 
Third Virginia Union Infantry. His regiment participated in 
many severe engagements. He soon became Second Lieuten- 
ant, and in 1864 he was made Major of his regiment, having 
been advanced through all the intermediate grades. In an en- 
gagement at Moorefield, Goffs horse was shot from under him, 
and he was taken prisoner and sent to Libby. While in prison 
a confederate Major Armsey, who lived in the adjoining coun- 
ty to GofF, was captured by the Federals and condemned to 
death as a spy, with others. Then the Confederates choose 
Goff as the person to put to death as an act of reprisal with 
others, as soon as the spies were executed. In his letter to 
President Lincoln in relation to his confinement he says: " If 
Major Armsey is guilty he should be executed, regardless of 
its consequences to me. The life of a single soldier, no matter 
who he may be, should not stand in the way of adherence to a 
great principle." Armsey was finally exchanged for Goff, 


and he again returned to his regiment. He was the means 
afterwards of saving Armsey's life ; he having been captured 
and placed in the jail at Clarksburg, where the people threat- 
ened his life, and but for GofFs interposition would probably 
have carried their threats into execution. He left the army as 
a Brevet Brigadier General of Volunteers. He was admitted 
to the bar in 1 865 . He has been practicing law since that 
time with good success. He represented his town in the Leg- 
islature in 1S67. and '68, when he was appointed U. S. Dis- 
trict Attorney. In 1 88 1 he was appointed Secretary of the 
Navy by President Hayes. In 1882 he was elected to the 
Forts -eighth congress. The Wheeling Sunday Register of 
Oct. 15, 1SS2, contains an extended biographical sketch of 
Gen. Goff.

Extract from a letter written in 1S11, relative to this mem- 
ber of the family : 

London, Oct. 20, 181 J. 
" One tiny, while we were viewing the public buildings at 
Chittenham, the following very extraordinary inscription, on 
an elegant marble monument erected in a church-yard, arrested 
our attention : 

Here lies the mortal remains of 

An American Merchant, born in the town of Boston, 

In America, in the year of our Lord, 1723, 

From whence he came to England. 

After residing at Bristol a number of years, traveling 
through various parts of the kingdom, he retired to 
this town, where, after a patient endurance of the 
infirmaties of old age, he departed this life 

Like autumn fruit mellowed long, 
Even wondered at that he fell not sooner; 
Fate seemed to wind him up for fourscore 
Years, yet freely ran he on ten winters more; 
'Till, like a clock worn out with eating time, 
The wearied wheels of life at last stood still. 

Upon inquiry I found that he was alive in / lat town ; that 
it was indited and erected under his inspectioy to be fitted up 
with dates, after his decease, by his son, wLo was living in 
Bristol. I visited him ; found him in a very inferior state of 
health ; faculties impaired ; related to me his leaving America : 
expressed great sorrow for having so done, mentioning his 


having been a hardware merchant, copartner with his brother. 
He was then in the ninetieth year of his age, in good spirits, 
and had a good appetite."

Dr. Albigence W^aldo, son of Zachariah Waldo 

and Abigail , born in Pomfret, Conn., Feb. 27, 1750;

tion : Elisha Hurlbut, Ralph, Harriet, Thos. Fanning, Nancy, 
Albigence, Jr. ; by bis second wife Lucy Cargill, bad Lucy, 
and Laura. 

We are indebted to Mr. John M. Cargill, of Providence, 
R. I., a nephew of Dr. Waldo's second wife, for papers fur- 
nished from which we gathered the following, the papers 
being found by him in an old house at the foot of Mount Tom, 
near the Connecticut river, where they were placed by the 
Doctor's wife, she having taken up her residence there soon 
after his death : i; On the breaking out of the Revolution, Dr. 
Waldo proceeded with the neighbors around about Pomfret, 
to Boston, immediately after receiving news of the battle of 
Lexington, their leader probably l}eing Gen. Putnam. He re- 
mained at Cambridge and Roxbury until honorably discharged, 
his health having failed him. On Dec. 14th, 1JJ6, he was ap- 
pointed by Gov. Trumbull, surgeon of the ship Cromwell. 
The ship not sailing, he, by the Governor's permission, attached 
himself to Gol. Huntington's newly raised regiment as sur- 
geon. This happened April 3d, 1777, in New Jersey, and 
he continued to do his duty with fidelity, and to the satisfac- 
tion of the officers and soldiers, and was discharged in Oct., 
1779. He was in the winter quarters at Valley Forge, and 
the following spring was with the jubilant Yankees as they 
gave chase to the Red Coats, then riving for safety over the 
plains of Monmouth. The war made him a poor man. The 
continental money amounting to but little for the support of 
his family, and consequently, after the war petitioned the Con- 
necticut Legislature to be ' exonorated from his past debts, have 
an equal share in the bounty of his country for real losses and 
services, and that he may have the privileges of a free citizen 
during the little remainder of life,' etc. He was a great ad- 
mirer of Washington, as is shown by the many letters he sent 
home from the front containing glowing sentiments about him. 



That Washington respected him highly is shown by his hav- 
ing employed him to copy many of his military orders, and 
presented him with a sword, which is still in the possession of 
Mr. Cargill, who also has the Doctor's iron-bound chest which 
he carried with him through the war, which now only con- 
tains the old sword, brass scales, by which he weighed his 
medicines, old papers, books, records, etc., his surgical outfit 
having been removed." Mr. Waldo received his early train- 
ing in the schools of his native town. He acquired his great 
skill and eminence as a physician and surgeon by study and 
practice at home, by extensive observations in the army, and 
by intercourse with the best of physicians. He had an extend- 
ed practice, was well known in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, 
and Connecticut. Three of his day-books, bound in hog-skin, 
contain the names of some 6000 patients treated by him, cov- 
ering a period of seventeen years, which included only those 
who had their accounts charged. Gen. Putnam's name ap- 
pears several times as one of his patients. He was a neighbor 
and intimate friend of the General. His brother Samuel was 
the General's son-in-law. 

He gave the eulogium at Putnam's grave, also at the grave 
of Capt. Asa Lyon, 1785. Being an able man he was often 
called upon on such occasions, He was so highly esteemed in 
Pomfret that many children were given his name. He died 
in 1794- Gen. McClellan delivered the funeral address in be- 
half of the Masonic fraternity. Moriah Lodge erected a mon- 
ument to his memory in the principal cemetery of Pomfret. 
The following is the inscription upon the monument : — 

" The Master Wardens and Brethren 

of Moriah Lodge 

In testimony of their esteem and respect 

For the virtues, talents and usefulness 

Of their late worthy Brother, 

Erect this Monument 


To the Memory 


Who, attentively studying the works of God 

In the admirable frame of man, 

Rose to eminent distinction 

In the noble art of healing. 

His name is Charity ; 

His actions, Humanity ; 

His intercourse with men, benevolence and love. 

Born in Pomfret, Feb. 27, 1750; 

Died 29th Jan., 1794." 

Dr. Waldo's book-mark, which he was accustomed to 
place in books loaned, was 

" The wicked borroweth and returneth not." 

The righteous borrow, read with care, and speedily return 
to the owner. 

Dr. Waldo kept a diary while he was at Valley Forge, 
which is full of interest from beginning to end. We give a 
few extracts only. The contents of the diary was published in 
the Historical Magazine in 1861, and in 1S63 it contained the 
poem that the Doctor wrote while in camp, a part of which 
will be found below, which was addressed to his wife, whom 
he called Celia. He began his diary Dec. 10, 1777. 


Dec. 28th.— Yesterday upwards of fifty Officers in Genl. 
Green's Division resigned their commissions.— Six or seven of our 
Regiment are doing the like to-day. All this is occation'd by 
Officers' families being so much neglected at home on account of 

The present circumstances of the Soldier is better by far than 
the Officer— for the families of the Soldier is provided for at public 
expense if the Articles they want are above the common price — 
but the Officers family are obliged not only to be™ in the most humble 
manner for the necessities of Life,— but to pay Sta these. a,ftex wards 
at the most exorbitant rates 


Dec. 28— Building Hutts. 

Dec. 29th. — Continued the work. Snow'd all day pretty brisk- 
ly.— The party of the 22d returned— lost 18 men, who were taken 
prisoners by being decoyed by the Enemies Light Horse who 
brought up the rear, as they passed the Schuylkill to the city. 

Our party took 13 or 14 of their Horsemen Our party 

were several times mixed with the enemies 1 horse — not knowing 
them from our Connecticut Light Horse— their clonks being the 

Dec. 30th. — Eleven deserters came in to-day — some Hessians 
& some English— one of the Hessins took an ax in his hand & 
cut away the Ice of the Schuylkill which was 1 1-2 inches thick 
&. -40 Rod wide and waded through to our camp— he was 1-2 an 
hour in the Water 

Sir Win. Askins commanded the 8000 who were out over the 
Schuylkill the otber Day — but part of two Brigades were left in 
the city. Cold Weather. Hutts go on moderately— very cold 
lying in Tents beyond what one can think. 

Dec. 31st.— Ajutaut Selden leain'd me how to Darn Stock- 
ings -to make them look like knit work 

Valley Forge, Dec. ;31st., 1777. 

Doct. Waldo, Surgeon of Col. Prentices Kegt., is recommended 
for a Furlow. 


In the Evening 1 j.iyfully received a letter from my good & 
loving Wife. The pleasure and satisfaction a man enjoys upon 
hearing of the health & peace of a Friend and more especially of 
a Wife, on whose affection & peace his own happiness depends, 
is a greater pleasure. * * * 

1778. January 1st.-— New Year. I am alive. I am well. 

Hutts go on briskly, and our camp begins to appear like a 

spacious city 

Bought an embroidered jacket 

Jan. 3d.— Our Hutts or rather our Hermits' cell goes on briskly 
— having a short allowance of Bread this morning we divided it 
with great precision -eat our Breakfast with thankful hearts for 
the little we had 

Another ship was taken from the enemy this Week— the lad- 
ing takeu out and the Ship burnt. The other ship mentioned 
New Year's day was loaded with Officers Baggage and Medicines 
—with other valuable matters— & clothing for 2000 men compleat. 



The bint taken from the following line of Pope : 

"Gun, Drum, Trumpet, Blunderbus & Thunder." 

Soldiers! would you acquire a lasting fame; 

Would you be pleased with a Hero's name, 

Have you a wish to be a Martial Wonder ? 

Rush furious on your foes— & fearless blunder, 

Thro 1 Gun, Drum, Trumpet, Blunderbuss and Thunder! 

Fresh Beef and Flour ruak" me perfectly Sick— especially ai 
we have no spirits to drink with it; but others stand it and so 
must I 

Sunday, Jan. 4th I was call'd to relieve a Soldier 

tho't to be dying— he expired before I reach'd the Hutt. He wns 
an Indian — an excellent Soldier — and an obedient good-natur'd 
fellow, hie engaged for money doubtless as others do;— but he 
has serv'd his country faithfully —he has fought for those very peo- 
ple who disinherited his forefathers— having finished his pilgrim- 
age, he was discharged from the War of Life & Death. . . . 

What a frail-dying creature is Man. We are certainly not 
made for this world — daily evidences demonstrate the contrary. 

Ah! frail— vain man — ye jest of fortune Here. 

Riches thy bane — and Poveity thy curse. 

All pleasures glutt thee— pain afflicts thy heart, 

Thy Body only food for death & Worms. 

Look upward then— O Man — the God of Worlds 

Has formed another World for the — by far 

Superior to this Orb on which we d .veil. 

The Marquis De la Fayette, a Volunteer in Our Array— & he 
who gave three ships to Congress, is very agreeable in his person 
and great in his character; being made a Major General— Briga- 
dier Conway, an Irish Colonel from France, took umbrage thereat, 
and resigned — but is now made Inspector General of the army — he 
is a great character— he were a commission in the French Service 
when he was but ten years old. Major General Lord Sterling, is 
a man of a very noble presence. . . . . . 

Count Polaski — General of the Horse is a Man of hardly mid- 
dling Statue — sharp countenance— and lively air; He contended 
a long time with his Uncle the present King of Poland for the 
crown— but being overcome he tied to France — and has now 
joined the American Army, where he is greatly respected & ad- 
mired for his Martial Skill, Courage & Intrepidity. Genl. Green 
& Genl. Sullivan are greatly esteemed. Baron De Kalb, a Major 
General is another very remarkable character, and a Gentleman 
much esteemed. 


Jan. 5th.— Apply VI for a Fnrlow, Surgn. Genl. not at home 
— came back mumping & Sulkcy. 

Jap. 6th. — Apply'd again— was deny'd by reason of Inocula- 
tions being set on foot 

8th. — Unexpectedly got a Fnrlow. Set out for home. The 
very worst of Riding— Mud & Mire. 

We had gone thro' Inoculation before this fuiiow.

Valley Forge, Apiil 26, 1778. 


1 sing in Hudebrastic strains, 

Of huts, encampments, and campaigns. 

O Celia! listen to my lays, 
For my ambition is thy praise: 
Inspired by Him who formed thee, 
I catched friendship's first idea. 
The happy knot, I fondly own, 
Confirmed my love for you alone — 
Be then my muse, and smooth along 
This rugged medley of a song. 


My humble hut demands a right 

To have its matter, birth, and site 

Described first! Of pond'rous logs 

Whose bulk disdains the winds or fogs. 

The sides and ends are fitly raised, 

And by dove-tail each corner's brae'd; 

Athwart the roof young saplings lie. 

Which fire and smoke has now made dry — 

Next, straw wraps o'er the tender pole. 

Next earth, then splints o'erlay the whole; 

Although it leaks when show'rs are o'er 

It didn't leak two hours before. 

Two chimneys plac'd at op'site angles 

Keep smoke from causing oaths and wrangles, 

(Which some philosophers have swore 

Will turn us as quick out of th' door, 

And is the second plague in life 

To what is called the scolding wife; 


But I know nothing of this matter, 
Being never plagu'd with female clatter; 
Peace to all such who know that, too. 
While happy I am blessed with you :) 
Our floors of sturdy timber made, 
Cleav'd from the oak and level laid ; 
Those cracks where zephyrs oft would play 
Are tightly closed with plastic clay ; 
Three windows, placed all in Right, 
Through oiled paper give us light ; 
One door, on wooden hinges hung, 
Lets in the friend, or sickly throng ; 
By wedge and beetle's splitting force 
The oaken planks are made, though coarse, 
By which is formed a strong partition 
That keeps us in a snug condition ; 
Divides the kitchen from the hall, 
Though both are equal, and both email, 
Yet there the cook prepares the board, 
There serves it up as to a lord, 
There knives and spoons and kettles rattle 
While here we talk of war and battle ; 
There is the chat and fun of boys 
Here pensive thoughts or friendship's J03S, 
Thore flights of fancy ycuth puisne 
While here I set and think of you. 


'Tis not each high aspiring dome 
That graced the streets of ancient Rome, — 
Not Troy's high walls, that rais'd the eyes 
With tow'ring spires toward the skies, — 
Not London's pride-that painted Doll, 
Though once our happy Capitol- 
Can equal, as the world must own, 
This ppaeious Camp of Washington ! 

But here to sing the General's praise, 
With Washington to grace my lays, 
Would strain my muse beyond its pow'r 
And ev'n true praise itself devour, 
Yet still I must and will impart 
A verse or two to show my heart. 

Oh Washington ! what soul like thine, 
If aught below can be divine, — 
'Tis thou !— " in every instance try'd 
Above all passsion, pain, or pride, 
Or power or rage of public breath, 
Vile Lucre," or the dread of Death, 
Not one that knows thee but must love — 
Those that but see thee will approve ! 
The World and Angels do command 
The heav'n born Universal Friend. 
Oh, could I reach the true sublime ! 
Transmit his worth to latest time ! 


In son'rous verse sublimely raise 
His virtues and deserved praise, 
Quartos and folios I'd write upon 
And shew the world a Washington ! 

But let ine shrink into myself. 

Least from Parnassus some vile Elf 

From tall Pegassus tumble me 

And make me but too plainly see 

I ne'er was born nor made a Poet 

Make all that know me, and Celia know it, 

Therefore I'll softly walk along 

And humbly sing my narrative song.

who sometime since was one of the most considerable shop-

In 1794 David Ripley Waldo removed to Hudson, N. Y., 
and died there Oct. 16, 1815. David R. Waldo was hard- 
working, conscientious and scrupulously honest ; and by these 
means at the age of 37, when he died, he had succeeded in 
amassing a large fortune. His business was that of general 
merchandise and freighting. 

George Clark Waldo, son of David Ripley Waldo and 
Deborah Clark, was born in Hudson, N. Y., Sept. 1, 1798, 
and died in Boston, Mass., April 20, 1826. We have been 
unable to secure anything of value concerning George Clark 
Waldo. It is known that he followed the sea. 

Charles Waldo, son of David Ripley Waldo and Deborah 
Clark, was born in Hudson, N. Y., Sept. 20, 1800, and died 
at Hudson, N. Y., Oct. 17, 1838. He graduated at Union 
College. He was by profession a lawyer of considerable prom- 
inence ; held various positions of trust and responsibility ; a 


brilliant conversationalist and ready debater. Among his inti- 
mate friends were numbered many of the learned and influen- 
tial men of his time. His preferences were the society of re- 
fined and literary gentlemen. He never married. 

Henry Waldo was born in Hudson, N. Y., Feb. 18, 1805. 
He was the son of David R. Waldo aid Deborah Clark. On 
Feb. 10, 1845, he married Sarah Heath, of Hudson, a daugh- 
ter of John Heath and Maria Webb. They had four children, 
8th generation : Jane Eliza. George Clark, Deborah, Hattie. 

Henry Waldo was of a roving disposition, fond of adventure, 
brave and hearty, and at the age of fifteen he ran away from 
his home and embarked on a sailing vessel as a sailor. His 
elder brother Charles, not caring to have Henry follow the sea, 
pursued him and endeavored to induce him to remain at home, 
but he had his labor for his pains. Henry was determined to 
see the world, and despite all the persuasions of his friends re- 
mained a sailor. Among the many reminiscences of his rov- 
ing life are the following : 

One day during a fearful gale of wind an English brig was 
sighted ; signals of distress were flying from her mast-head, 
and to all appearances her situation was a desperate one. The 
vessel upon which young Waldo was sailing ran down toward 
the unfortunate vessel, only to find that she was water-logged 
and sinking. The waves ran so high that to reach the sinking 
ship seemed almost impossible. Young Waldo, who was then 
mate of his vessel, was not daunted by the outlook ; he went 
forward among his men and asked if any of them would go 
with him to the wreck. Four volunteered to go at the risk of 
their lives. After great difficulties they reached the brig, but 
the wind was so high that they found it impossible to make fast 
to her. Two or three times their light boat became near being 
swamped. Taking advantage of moments when the boat would 
approach the brig, a man and his wife and three children were 


rescued. Not satisfied with this, young Waldo made two more 
trips to the sinking vessel and succeeded in saving the rest of 
the crew. About four hours previous to the rescue an English 
vessel had "spoken the brig," but instead of laying by had left 
her to her fate. For this service the British Board of Admi- 
ralty presented Henry Waldo and the crew of his vessel with 
£100 sterling. 

On another occasion Henry Waldo was wrecked in the At- 
lantic ocean ; for two days and three nights he and seven com- 
panions sat on the taffrail of his ship, with difficulty keeping 
their heads out of water, the sea washing over them all the time. 
On the third morning they were rescued from their perilous 
position by a Charleston packet. 

Henry Waldo followed the sea until he was forty years of 
age. About this time he was made captain of the ship "Or- 
bit." A short time afterwards he retired, married, and settled 
down in Hudson, N. Y. He engaged in mercantile pursuits, 
but the quiet life of Hudson did not agree with his roving tem- 
perament. In 1 849, when the California gold fever was raging, a 
company of volunteers was organized in Hudson for the purpose 
of buying a vessel in which to sail to the coveted gold fields. 
Fifty-four men composed the party, and $27,000 was invested 
in the enterprise. The bark tk Mousam" was purchased, and 
Henry Waldo was unanimously elected captain of the vessel 
and treasurer of the company. After a successful voyage the 
party reached San Francisco, where the vessel was sold and 
the balance of cash and provisions distributed pro rata among 
them. To enumerate the different pursuits of this gallant army 
of explorers is not our purpose. Their lives are a part of the 
history of California. Henry Waldo remained about eighteen 
months ; during his short stay he was elected associate judge 
of Eldorado county, and opened the first court there. He was 
prominently connected and identified with this now thriving 


county. At this time his health not being good he determined 
to return to the east. Every effort was made to persuade him 
to remain, but to no purpose. On his way home on. board 
•ship he was stricken with shagrus fever and came near dying. 
His determination not to die then, to use his own words, saved 
his life. He succeeded in reaching safely his old home in Hud- 
son, N. Y., where, under careful nursing, he soon recovered his 
health. About this time political party contests were running 
high. Captain Waldo was offered and accepted the nomina- 
tion for Sheriff of Columbia county, New York state, and he 
was the only republican elected on the ticket, his majority being 
eighty-three votes. The contest was the closest ever known in 
Columbia county. In 1865 Captain Waldo was given an ap- 
pointment in the customs service in New York City. He is 
now in the eightieth year of his age, is well and hearty, and 
able to attend to his business.

cided ability, correct and methodical in his habits, a firm friend, 
strong in his likes and dislikes. A small portion of his life 
was spent in New York City, where he was employed as an 
accountant with a firm whose place of business adjoined that 
of the old firm of Waldo, Barry & Co. He was also in New 
Orleans for a short time. William Waldo was never satisfied 
away from home ; he was devotedly attached to his mother, 
and lived but one year after her death.
