We are trying to locate where the Waldron Family came from to North America. The Waldron's first came to the United States of America 1700's. Then to Upper Canada circa 1799 to the Quinte area. The original Waldron's to Upper Canada were Philip and /or Joseph Waldron. We cannot find their burial place or where they came from originally.

Where would we locate their origin please, and if they were Irish Palatines? We did not find them in the Irish Palatine Pioneers in Upper Canada: Commemorating 300 Years 1709-2009.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. We have been researching our Family Histories since 1967. Our Canadian Centennial Project.

Thank you for your consideration of our request. Mrs. R. Simpson
