William H Baldwin inquiry
Posted by: Jere Baldwin (ID *****0439) Date: September 05, 2006 at 18:01:31

I am looking for information on the following Baldwin Family. I believe I may be a descendant of The Listed Harry Baldwin son of William H Baldwin, of Philadelphia PA. I do not know this family is mine positively, but what is known of my family i will post here.

My Great Grandfather was William Harry Baldwin listed as being born in 1863 or 64 in Marietta Lancaster County PA. All I Know is that his family was said to have come originally from Connecticut or Massachussetts, and his mothers name was Ann J. Dunbar. I believe the family was Episcopalian.

He married Ida L. Elder of Marietta, Lancaster county, in 1882. The family moved to Ohio, New Jersey, then settled in Springs City Pennsylvania. He was a Forgeman and like the gentlemen listed as Harry Below of the proper age, a Moulder. He died while working at a job in Port Deposit MD.

I have yet to find my ancestor on Any census other than after marriage. I believe this is his family. Any Help or Direction on my ancestor or this family listed below would be greatly appreciated.

Most of these were buried in Spring City Montgomery County Pa.

The Family of William and Ida lived for a time in Ohio and New Jersey during the 1890's. And moved back to Pennsylvania by 1900 to Royersford, Montgomery county.

I believe the attended Churh at some point upto their marriage in Columbia, Lancaster County.

My Grandfather was Jeremiah Elder Baldwin who married Inez Dearolf

There were 5 children to this line:

John David (Jack)

My Father was Jere

Any help with this question would be greatly appreciated. William H Baldwins father was listed born in Connecticut, in the 1910 census.

Thank You,

Jere Baldwin
