Brian, thank you for the information. Our family has been looking for his fathers name for years. I don't have any information on the names you posted, sorry. I did send an email to a cousin (Marvin & Connie Waid) who has done extensive Waid research. I'm hoping that Connie will be able to help you out. I'm sure that if she has something she will let you know. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . We have lots of Waid info from Benj. C. to current, but have never gotten back past him. Thanks again.
