Birth: May 3, 1777
Essex County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Apr. 10, 1868

Cass County
Michigan, USA

Sarah Baldwin (in some sources called "Sally") was born in Essex Co., NJ to Gabriel Baldwin and Rebecca Little. Sarah Baldwin married William Wright and they moved from Essex Co., NJ to Butler Co., OH, to Cass Co., Michigan.

They were one of the original settling families of Cass County. The family was known for their fine breed of horses. Sarah and William are buried on their son-in-law's farm, which since was sold. The story of their first year as pioneers, including the tragic death of their young son shortly after their arrival in Cass Co. in 1828, is told in History of Cass County, MI.

Stephen D. Wright, their son, inherited the family farm. He died April 25, 1898. Other children are Susannah (Webster); Clarissa (Ball); David L.; Mary "Polly" (Shurte); Dennis; Elizabeth (Bonnell); Lucinda (Lord); John Miller Wright; and Rachel Wright.
