(The following is from the book, "Genealogy of the Waldo family- a record of the descendants of Cornelius Waldo of Ipswich, Mass., from 1647 to 1900," by Waldo Lincoln A.B.):

bda in Waldo Genealogy

After his marriage, he - appears to have lived in that part of Norwich, Conn., which is now Lisbon; for, in February, 1735, Edward Waldo of Windham (his father) conveyed to "Shubal Waldo of Norwich" land in Windham, (Windham Deeds, vol. G., p. 270: Norwich Deeds, vol. v., p. 200.) and --- ye 18, 1738 (acknowledged May 18, 1738), " Shubael Waldo of Norwich" conveyed to John French of Norwich, a house and " 60 or 70 acres " of land in Norwich, on " east side of Shautucket River near Pottenauge," and also land in Windham (Norwich Deeds, vol. ix., p. 16: Windham Deeds, vol. H., p. 298.)

He was chosen "lister" at a town meeting at Norwich, Dec. 31, 1736, but his name appears no more in the town records, and he probably left Norwich in 1738, when he sold his farm there. Mch. 19, 1738-9, " Shubael Waldo of Norwich" bought an estate in the northeast corner of Mansfield, Conn., and must have, soon after, removed to that town, as, Sept. 21,1739, he, then of Mansfield, bought twenty-five acres of land in Mansfield. He again bought land in the same town July 29,1745, and Aug. 22,1753; and conveyed, Nov. 27, 1754, to his son, Samuel Waldo, thirty-eight and a half acres of land in Mansfield, and, Dec. 8, 1763, conveyed other land to his son, Edward Waldo of Mansfield-in all these deeds being described as of Mansfield (Mansfield Deeds, vols. iii., pp. 890,924; iv., p. 360; v., pp. 520,610; vii., p. 173.)

He and his wife Abigail were admitted into the First Church of Mansfield in 1739 (Records of the First Church.) About 1769 he removed, with most of his family, to Alstead, N. H., and there passed the remainder of his life. May 22, 1769, " Shubael Waldo of Mansfield, Conn., yeoman," bought of "Timothy Delano of Alstead, N. H., yeoman," for £300, "Lott No. 4 in the 5th range " and " that part of Lott No. 3 and No. 4 in the 2nd range not sold to Simeon Baker and Joel Chandler," all in Alstead. Aug. 25, 1769, "Shubael Waldo of Mansfield, Conn.," conveyed " for Love good will and Natural affection I bear to my Son Edward Waldo of said Mansfield, one half of that farm in Alstead, N. H., throughout for quality and quantity to witt the Lott No. four in the 5th range with the one Half of the buildings thereon standing." This latter deed was acknowledged in Tolland, Conn. (Cheshire County, N. H., Deeds, vol. ii., pp. 149, 150.) Sept. 18, 1770, "Shubael Waldo of Alstead, N. H., yeoman," " for Love good will and Natural affection which I Bear To my Son Daniel Waldo of said Alstead, Blacksmith," conveyed to said Daniel "eighty acres in Alstead. . . . Bounding Northerly on the highway or Road near said house of the said Daniel takeing the width of that Land which I bought of Timo Delano." (Ibid., vol. iii., p. 466.) Apr. 24, 1775, "Shubal Waldo of Alstead, N. H.," conveyed "for Love and good will and affection to my son Calvin Waldo of Alstead that part of Lots No. 3 and 4 in the 2nd Range which I bought of

Capt. Tim Delano, except eighty acres which is conveyed to my son Daniel." (Ibid., vol. v., p. 525.) Having thus disposed of most of his property daring his life, Shubael Waldo died intestate; and, Sept. 13, 1776, Beulah Waldo of Alstead in the county of Cheshire, N. H., husbandman, as principal, and Barnabas Delano of Walpole, yeoman, and Jonathan Shepard, Jr., of Alstead, cordwainer, as sureties, gave bonds for £100 as

administrator on the estate of Shubael Waldo, late of Alstead, yeoman, deceased. The estate was inventoried at £23 : 6 : 8, all personal.4

Shubael Waldo was selectman of Alstead in 1772. The town meetings were frequently held at his house, and it was voted, June 30, 1773, " to hold the Town meetings Still at mr Shubael Waldos." 5

He married, Oct. 14, 1730, at Bridgewater, Mass.,6 Abigail, daughter of Samuel (Samuel, Samuel) and Mary (Alden) Allen of Bridgewater; born, 1712, at East Bridgewater; died Sept. 6, 1799, at the home of her son, Abiather, at Shaftsbury, Vt., and was there buried. The

following is the inscription on her gravestone:-

"In memory | of Mrs Abigail | wife of | Mr Shubcl Waldo |

who | died Sep 6 1799 | in the | 88 year of her | age."

That her mother, the second wife of Samuel Allen, was Mary Alden has not been positively proved, but is considered likely by good authorities. In "Four Generations of the Waldo Family in America"

the writer erroneously called Abigail the daughter of Samuel Allen's first wife, Rebecca Gary.
