Hello Tabitha, I do not know if there is a connection or not but my Grandmother had a Uncle with the name Develar Waldo. The first name could be misspelled. But they came from Mississippi but they also moved into Arkansas. Heading to Marianna Ark. from MS ending in the Fort Smith Ar area. This Delmer Waldo could be a son. But this is just guessing. May not be anything but thought I would give you this information just in case.
