Children, 4th generation: Shubael, Edward, Jr., Cornelius, Ann, John , Bethuel, Thankful, Joanna, Zacheus, John. Edward was deacon of the Congregational church in Scotland. The towns of Windham and Scotland were one for many years. After the town was divided the part containing Windham village and Willimantic retained the original name of Windham.
There is a document in Hartford, Conn., the original application of sundry citizens of the town of Windham, Conn., for a new county, under date of May, 1723, signed by the above-named Edward Waldo. He was an extensive farmer of that town. Edward and his wife, Thankful Dimock, were buried in Scotland, Conn., in what is known as the "Palmertown Burying-ground." He built a house in the town of Scotland, near the county line, about the year 1714. The house is still standing, and owned by a descendant.".
