LDS Biographical Encyclopedia, Andrew Jenson, Vol. 2, p. 589:

Caleb Baldwin was one of the early Elders of the Church, was born Sept. 2, 1791, at Nobletown, Orange co., New York. He served as an ensign under Captain Chas. Parker in the war of 1812. Becoming a convert to "Mormonism" he was baptized Nov. 14, 1830, by Parley P. Pratt. Soon afterwards he gathered with the early saint to Jackson county, Mo., and took part in the so-called battle on the Big Blue. In 1833 he was driven out of Jackson county with the rest of the saints, and subsequently settled in Caldwell County, Missouri. In the fall of 1838 he was arrested on a trumped up charge and shared a prison cell with the Prophet Joseph Smith and others for 5 months at Liberty, Clay, Missouri, during the winter of 183839. When the prisoners were detected in trying to make their escape by cutting a hole through the wall of the goal, and Judge Tillery was about to have them ironed and chained to the floor of their cells, Bro. Baldwin said to the judge: "Judge Tillery! If you put these chains on me, I will kill you, so help me God." The judge left without putting on the chains. Bro. Baldwin emigrated to Great Salt Lake Valley in the year 1848 and died in Salt Lake City June 11, 1849.
