Re: Samuel Lovett Waldo's wife Deliverance

Thanks for the complement, but I'm afraid it's quite untrue; I'm just a beginner myself.

Samuel Lovett Waldo was my great-great-great-great-grandfather, which should make you and me third cousins twice removed (it sounds like he was your great-great-grandfather).

You are also related to George Washington (I'll have to look it up again, but it's something like sixth cousin a few times removed). And you're a ninth cousin twice removed from Princess Diana (she had an American ancestor on the Waldo side). I'll look those lines up and post them here if you're interested. That info comes from the book American Ancestors and Cousins of the Princess of Wales.

One nice thing about establishing a royal ancestry (you're descended from Edward III through 19 generations) is that you get that royal person's genealogy (of which there is usually quite a bit) as your own, so the lines then reach very, very far back.

The royal line of Samuel Lovett Waldo comes through the early settler Thomas Dimmock, from a book establishing the royal lines of many early American colonists.

I don't yet have the Waldo books, but I am planning on getting them.
