"Cornelius Waldo, it is claimed, was in the line of decent from Peter Waldo, a merchant of Lyons, who lived in the 12th c. & became the founder of the Waldenses, who occupied the valley of Piedmont, to which Peter Waldo had retired. These Waldenses were distinguished both for their industrious, upright, Christian lives and for the cruel persecutions they suffered. Cornelius is a decendent of Peter. "
---from The Coggswells in Eng. 1883."
