In the July/August issued of "American Spirit" magazine put out by the D.A.R. is an article on "The Last Men of the Revolution" from a book written in 1864 by Rev. Elias Brewster Hillard.

"Daniel Waldo (1763-1864) enlisted in 1778 at about age 16 for what was initially only a month's service. He decided to re-enlist in 1779. He was held at one of the 'sugar house' prisons in New York City until February 1780. These prisons were named for their original function as sugar refineries. Upon release, he returned to his native Windham, Conn., entering Yale College to become a minister in 1788. He eventually married and had five children, moving to New York State in 1835."

I am not related to this man and have no further information.
