Waldron, Ferdinand. Samuel Waidron, the great great grandfather of Ferdinand, came from England in 1729 to Dighton and at one time owned all the land from Rehoboth to the Taunton River. Billings Waldron, Mr. Waldron's grandfather, was born in North Dighton in the old homestead where his father, Francis, and himself were born, and where his father now resides at the age of eighty eight years. There were five sisters and three brothers in Mr. Waldron's father's family: Francis, Mr. Waidron's twin brother; Clarence: Alvira, wife of Francis Thatcher of Chicago; Georgianna, wife of Stephen H. Leonard; Estelle L., widow of Charles H. Kingsly; Augusta M. and Ella L., who reside at home. Mr. Waldron's father was a baker by trade and continued the business for upwards of fifty years. Mr. Waidron early learned the trade of his father and worked with him until he reached his twentyfourth year, when he started out for himself and for six years was engaged in this line at Somerset, when he came to Dighton and built a shop where the post office now stands. This building was destroyed by fire, was rebuilt, and again destroyed by fire in 1893 and rebuilt again. Mr. Waldron married Annie J. Perry, and they have two children: Hope P. and Edward F. In politics Mr. Waidron has always been a Democrat. He has been for five years a member of the School Committee of the town of Dighton, was appointed postmaster in October, 1893, by President Cleveland, and still retains the position, which he holds to the eminent satisfaction of the government and the citizens.
