I am trying to find futher information on LEWIS BALDWIN
born about 1825 in New York. He died about 1870, place and circumstances unknown.

Lewis Baldwin married Mary Jane McCook Guard circa
1855-1858.
Mary Jane McCook was the daughter of Maj. Daniel McCook b. 1798 (PA) and Martha Latimer.

Lewis and Mary had one daughter, Martha "Mattie" Baldwin born about 1859 in Havana, Mason County, Illinios.

Found this census record:
1860 Illinois, Mason County, Havana P. O.
(Series: M653, Roll 210, Page: 495)
Sheet/Page on image: 138
enumeration date: 14 August 1860
