Wald Family Genealogy Forum
Wow! It's great to find the name "Wald" actually listed somewhere! I sure hope there are other of you out there looking.
Wald is my maiden name; therefore, one of my lines that I am most interested in. About as far back as I know is my gggrandfather Joe Wald. He is listed on the Grant County, OK, homesteaders memorial. I am pretty sure he made the land run in 1889, or homesteaded in the area very soon after (I think I actually even know where!) He had at least 2 sons. My ggrandfather, John, and his brother Bias. I have birth and death dates on these buried in my notes somewhere. I am having a really hard time finding where my ggrandfather came from before OK. (Don't we all wish we had the 1890 census.) From what I know about the family, it is pretty small. None of the people I know of had more than 3 children. It makes things even harder. If anyone knows anything or has run across these names anywhere, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.
Good luck to all you other "Wald" folks out there.
