Saw your inquiry on William J. Waldo and Elizabeth Ely Vail. You probably have the info you wish by now, but I can furnish a little bit. William Waldo, b.1-16-1812,Clarksburg, Harrison Co, VA. d. 11-2-1881 at his ranch near Sutherland Springs, TX (killed by Indians of Ulzana's band when they left the reservation.) He was the 10th child of Jedediah Waldo (10-19-1772,Albany,NY to 1-20-1820 Harrison County,VA) and Polly Porter.
Wm.Waldo married Elizabeth Vail 1-23-1834 at Union Mission, near Ft. Gibson, I.T. She was the daughter of the missionary there, and she died 12-20-1879, Sutherland Springs, TX. He wrote an article about his life on the frontier, published in the Mo. Historical Society some years ago. I think Victor Waldo has quite a bit on him, and if I may be of assistance, email me.
