Gardiner Waite was listed as a Cooper; I believe he made barrel for the salt company/companies.
He married Phoebe Shepard in about 1815, possibly in Cicero, if not most likely in Onondaga County.
He bought property in Cicero, Onondaga, New York. Lot 9 in 1822 from Jonathan Emmons and lot 10 in 1828 from John and Matilda Ramsay. I first fine him living in Manlius, Onondaga, County in 1820. In 1830 and 1840 he is listed in Cicero, Onondaga County, New York.
He is listed on the 1820 Census in Manlius, Onondaga, New York
1830 in Cicero, Onondaga, New York
1840 in Cicero, Onondaga, New York
I cannot find him on 1850 census, but I find Phoebe listed twice. It appears to me that all the younger children are staying with older siblings or other relatives. Maybe Gardiner was working somewhere, by this time they had lost their property.
The last time I can find Gardiner is on the 1855 Census, he and Phoebe are both living with Russell in Altmar, Oswego, New York
I believe the following are children of Gardiner and Phoebe;
Harvey A Waite born 1816 in Cicero, Onondaga, New York
Susannah Waite born 1817 in Cicero, Onondaga, New York
Polly Waite born 05 Dec 1818 in Cicero, Onondaga, New York
Maria Waite born 30 Jul 1822
Harriet Waite born 1825
Jeremiah W Wait born 1826
Sophia Waite born 1831
Russell Waite born 21 Feb 1834 in Onondaga, New York
Charles Waite born 1838
A Possible child – G Addison Wait, listed in Civil War documents as being from Cicero, Onondaga, New York.
