Thayer's Note:

a In Album of Genealogy and Biography Cook County, Illinois with Portraits (8th ed., 1897), the dates are given as 1845‑49. The passage is of interest: "Politically Mr. Waller was a conservative Democrat. He served two terms in the Kentucky Legislature before leaving that State, from 1845 to 1849. In Illinois he was the firm friend and co‑laborer of Stephen A. Douglas, at whose funeral he was an honorary pall-bearer. They stumped the State together in several campaigns."
