From looking for the names of the brothers of this ancestor - came up with a Nathan, Daniel and Ashbel, some of the sons of Phinehas Waller and Rhoda Taylor of CT.

The birth records are from - as are the birth records of their other children, not included here.

Also included are excerpts on this branch of the Waller line which can be read further on googlebooks. 

I don't know if this is the correct ancestor you are searching for your friend, but this Ashbel was b. in CT and the text indicates he then moved to Oh which some of his brothers. 

It appears that this Ashel has Revolutionary War Records on some pay sites.
