You are my 6th cousin, once removed. Edward Waldo and Thankful Dimmock are your 5th GGrandparents and they are my 6th. Their son Zacheus is your 4th GGrandfather, his brother John is your 5th Great Uncle and my 5th GGrandfather. I am intrigued by the fact that you have Edward's commission and a contemporary sketch of him. Were you ever able to scan those so that others like myself could enjoy seeing them?
I thought you would like to know, if you don't already, that my 5th GGrandparents, John Waldo (born in Windham, Connecticut 18 Oct 1728, died in Bridgeport Va [present day West Virginia] 23 Aug 1814) and Jemima Abbot (born in Boston 18 Dec 1729, died in Bridgeport Va [present day West Virginia] 18 Dec 1815, are buried side by side in the Bridgeport West Virginia cemetery. You can see their grave stones at findagrave.com. I'm sure you know that Edward built a home in Scotland Connecticut in 1715 that still stands today, I would think that the six youngest of his children were born in that home.
