Notes for Joseph R. Baldwin:

Found among family relics a copy of the minutes of the 57th Annual session of the center District
Primitive Baptist Church Association. The 57th was held with the River View Church Ashe Co.,N.C.
Sept.28, 29 & Oct. 1911 On the back side appeared:

"Elder Joseph Baldwin son of William D. Baldwin and Margaret Baldwin, was born Aug.20, 1831.
deceased Feb.19, 1909, making his stay on earth 77 years 6 months and 29 days. He was born and
raised in the mountain part of Va. Grayson County. Between the age of 20 and 21 he was married to
Marilda Jones from which union were born 9 children. 5 boys and 4 girls, seven are still surviving their

"He professed and claimed a hope in Christ about the year 48 or 49 and joined the Primitive Baptist
Church shortly afterwards at Big Helton and remained a faithful member until his death. Shortly after the
Civil War he was licensed to exercise a public gift. Then soon after was ordained to preach the gospel of
our Lord Jesus Christ and officiate in all offices of Christ's Church, and in the division of the church he
stood firm, and done much good in keeping the church together.

"In the death of Brother Baldwin, the church has lost a useful member, the community a good and
worthy neighbor, and his family a kind and affectionate father, and we as the church extend our heartfelt
sympathies to the bereaved, and we pray that our Heavenly Father may lighten their sad and deep
affliction by His abundant Grace and Mercy. May God take care of us all and send another to take up
Brother Baldwin's mantle."

Brother Baldwin may be gone, but he's not forgotten. Regular readers of this column will recall last
week we printed Elder Joseph Baldwtn's obituary in this apace. On Monday Brother Baldwin's grandson
walked into the office. It was a complete surprise, since we had no idea Brother Baldwin had surviving
relatives living here.

John M. Baldwin, 72, of 104 Grove Street, offered additional information about his somewhat famous
relative Elder Baldwin, a circuit-riding Primitive Baptist preacher who grew a beard to his waist and had
only one leg, as the other was shot off during the Civil War, descended from a most interesting family.
According to John Baldwin, the founder of the ancient English family is said to have been Bawdewyn
de Brugge, who came to England with the Army of William the Conqueror (1066).

It was reported that after the country had been conquered, Bawdewyn was appointed governor of the
royal castle at Montgomery, south of Wales.

From him the many families, who write their name several ways; Baldwin, Baidwyn and Baldewin
claim to be descendants. The chief families were located in the north and west of England.
The family which located In Yorkshire prior to the 15th century during the reign of Henry VIII
(1509-1547) acquired the lease of Ingthrope Grange for 300 years. It was not relinquished to the crown
until 1827.

The western branch of the family was located at Diddlebury in Shropahire in the 14th century. Of this
family was Thomas Baldwin, agent of the Earl of Shrewaberry, the custodian of Mary1 Queen of Scots
during her captivity in England by Elizabeth I (1558-1603).

Suspected of plotting the escape of the Scottish Queen, Thomas was confined to the Tower of
London for several years, but he later was vindicated.

The Irish branch of the family settled in the west, Cork County. The family was established in the U.S.
in 1639, when a John Baldwin came from England to settle at Milford, Conn.. The following year another
member of the clan, Samuel Baldwin, settled at Windsor, Mass.

Ben Baldwin

Rockport,Texas. July 24, 1921

My Dear Brother Lee,

Yesterday was my 72 birth day. My recollection is you are my senior by two years. We have both lived to a pretty good old age. But alas, how short, how short seems the time since we were boys together. Do you remember in 61, I suppose it was, we were working in the cors on Cats Fork; you were plowing old doc, the gray horse, when we discovered a terrible looking snake coiled on a stump not far from where we were. We threw rocks and whatever we could get, and finnally the thing looked as if it were going to spring on to the horse, which was pretty near it. A tremendously dark cloud was coming up and we took
advantage of its approach as an excuse for giving up the battle with the snake, and all of us retreated toward the house in good order. And do you remember when a red steer about one or two years old belonging to us broke his neck some way in or at the straw stack up above the house there on that same Cats Fork? Of course you remember well when the yankees came and took our little chestnut squrel house and a big lot of things from the house, there at the same place. Oh ! these terrible times and the experience of our dear old mother. Of course I did not appreciate the situation then. Do you remember Bill Goins, Butler Roberts and Little Sink Roberts, and how the latter could drive oxen? Old man Sink Roberts was a smart fellow. His son Bill was also smart. And do you remember Sam, I have forgotten his other name, Old Man Sink Roberts ox driver. I think he loved oxen. And do you remember one old mule of "Old Sink" that would almost always bray when the dinner horn blowed? Well I am thankful for God's kindness to me and you. I try to love him more and more. Whatever comes to me, I shall implictetly trust
him. Give my regards to all the family. God bless you and yours.
