From Annual Bradford County Historical Society Reports, Issue 11:

Mrs. Lucy Augusta Baldwin died December 11, 1917 at the Sayre hospital in her 77th year. She was a daughter of Daniel and Eliza (Lewis) Lyon and was born May 28, 1841 in Monroe township, the youngest of eight children. In early life Mrs. Baldwin came to Towanda as a teacher in the public schools and here was her home until her death. November 5, 1868 she married Orson A. Baldwin, a prominent and successful Towanda business man, who died in 1911. Mrs. Baldwin’s life was a busy one and her activities in educational, musical, social and church circles gave her an acquaintance which extended far beyond the confines of Towanda and Bradford county. As a teacher in our public schools and as superintendent of the Infant Department of the Presbyterian Sunday school, she was a much beloved and successful instructor. In all the activities of her church and of the community she was leader, and this she was by the native force of her character. She was a singer of unusual gifts. Towanda never had a more capable and unselfish worker in its civic and social life than this good woman, whose “little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love endeared her to all our people.” She leaves one son, Hon. Geo. L. Baldwin of Syracuse, N. Y. Interment was in Oak Hill cemetery, Towanda.
