Waldo/Lincoln/Woods/Lewis MA1700's

My grgrgrandmother's sibling was Daniel Waldo Woods, son of Mary Lewis and Daniel Woods b. MA ca 1805 - 1815. This family has connections to Lincoln family of Hingham, MA.
I have found a Martha Waldo married to a Levi Lincoln, but am looking for direct connection. Martha was dau of Daniel Waldo and Rebecca Salisbury. My Hellen Louisa Woods, dau of Mary Lewis and Daniel Woods named her daughters: Mary, Anna Marie, Elizabeth, Martha and Charlotte. I am Martha's grgranddau.

I have also seen an Abigail Austin m. to a John Lewis ca 1750. Since Daniel Waldo Lewis has a sister by the name of Abigail Austin Woods, there most likely is a connection. It seems that all of these English families are tightly interwoven.

Also, what connection is there to Ralph Waldo Emerson, the poet? This is a point of curiosity that came to mind when I first found the Waldo name in my family tree a few months ago.
