Genealogy of the Waldo Family, a Record of The Descendants of Cornelius Waldo of Ipswich, Mass., From 1647 to 1900, by Waldo Lincoln, A. B. (Worcester Mass., 1902), vii + 1121 pages in two volumes. The Digital Edition published on CD-ROM, © February 2007
Cornelius Waldo was born about 1624, probably in England, of unknown parentage. He died at Chelmsford, Massachusetts, Jan. 3, 1700-1. He came to New England along with this brother, Thomas, some time before 1647. Thomas returned to Europe, but Cornelius remained to become the immigrant ancestor of the American branch of the Waldo family. He had twelve children. Three died in infancy. Another two (daughters) left no records, and probably died early and unmarried. Seven remained -- four sons and three daughters. Their children (Cornelius’s grandchildren) died in Bridgewater, Braintree, Dedham, Newton, and Boston, Massachusetts; Windham, Pomfret, and Canterbury, Connecticut; and Bangor, Maine. By 1900, descendants (in the eighth, ninth, and tenth generations) were found in every state and territory of the Union, except Nevada and Hawaii, with the largest concentrations in Connecticut, Vermont, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois and, especially, Michigan and New York. There was also a large contingent of Waldo descendants in Canada, especially Ontario.
The Genealogy of the Waldo Family opens with an eleven-page “introduction” largely concerning early origins of the Waldos. It ends with an eleven-page “appendix” of Waldos, “possibly descended from Cornelius of Ipswich, whose place in the family has not been ascertained.” There are three indexes (240 pages), including a useful “index of places.”
