The burial was from the undertaking parlors there, conducted by the I. O. O. F. The Presbyterian clergyman officiated. A profusion of flowers on and around the casket testified to the love and esteem of his many friends. The relatives he left there were his wife, two daughters, Jennie and Clara, three sons, Walter, Ben and Bert, one brother, B. F. Waldo. In 1904 his youngest child, Pearl, a daughter of eight years, died in Fort Bragg, where they resided. This side the continent he leaves one brother, C. F. Waldo, and one sister, Jennie Bigelow, in Vermont; Mrs. Mary Vesper in New Hampshire, and Mrs. Flora Dunbar in Massachusetts to mourn his loss. He served his country in the Civil war, enlisting as a cavalryman in a Vermont regiment in 1863, serving through the war. He has been a resident of California since 1875, visiting his native state but once since.
