  • Notes 
    • The earliest known residence of Oliver Waldron was Bryan County where he was married and living in the 1820 census. He and his brother, David Waldron, moved to Ware County (now Pierce) soon after Ware was formed out of Appling County. Oliver Waldron's home was located about two miles northeastward from where Blackshear now is. About 1845 he moved to Columbia County, Florida, and afterwards about 1853 to Marion County, Florida. He died November 6, 1867, at his home at Suwannee Shoals, Florida. His wife survived and made her home with her son, Jesse, spending her last years in Manatee County, Florida.

      Oliver Waldron served as Justice of Peace, 584th district of Ware County, 1831-33, and as Justice of Ware Inferior Court, 1837-1841. He served in the War of 1812 and the Indian War. He enlisted January 18, 1815 in Bryan County, as private under Captain James Bird in Col. Mann's regiment, Georgia militia, and served until March 2, 1815 when he was honorably discharged. He served as private in Captain James A. Sweat's company of the Ware County militia, June 9th to August 19, 1838 in the Indian War. His widow was granted a pension for this service, in 1870.
