Cornelis Waldron was born in November 1705. He was the second son of Albany newcomers Pieter and Catharina Vandenbergh Waldron. He was an older son in the large family of an aspiring trader who died in 1725 - just shy of his fiftieth birthday. Cornelis then was twenty years old.
Beyond church-based family information, his name seems to have eluded community-based reference following his marriage. However, children and their offspring have been tracked to Halfmoon. .
Perhaps he had served as an attorney in a land transaction in May 1754.
Cornelis Waldron died in May 1756 and was buried from his Albany church. Like his father, he had lived but fifty years. Perhaps, his widow was the "Mrs Waldrum" who was identified as "mantuamaker" on a census of Albany householders made by the British army in June of 1756.
Sources: The life of Cornelis Waldron is CAP biography number 649. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
A family-based resource holds that he previously had married one "Cornelia Vanderpoel." No children of that marriage have been found to date.
