Joseph Baldwin

Birth: unknown
North Carolina, USA
Death: unknown
Wilkes County
North Carolina, USA

Joseph married about December 12, 1810 (date of bond) at Reddies River, Wilkes Co., North Carolina to Sarah "Sally" McQuary, daughter of John and Nancy (Shepherd) McQuary. Joseph signed his signature and her father, John McQuary placed an "X" by his name.

It is believed Joseph died before 1830 in Wilkes Co., NC, which is evident by several facts. First, in 1830 only his wife and older daughter, Nancy, withdrew membership from Reddies River Church. Second, in the history of Brown Twp., Hancock Co., Indiana, among the first settlers is listed "...Sarah Baldwin and her seven children, Morgan McQuary..." No mention of Joseph. Third, Sarah Baldwin alone, purchased land from her brother, Morgan.

Seven known children were born to Joseph and Sarah: Eli, John Henderson, Nancy, Elisha, Elizabeth, Lucinda, and Thomas.

NOTE: New information has come to light. While searching for more on daughter Elizabeth in Monroe Co., Iowa, a Thomas Baldwin was found and I was directed to a 1916 "History of Butler County, Kansas," a bio of Jackson Baldwin. "Jackson Baldwin, a prominent farmer and stockman of Plum Grove township, was born in Hancock Co., Indiana, Feb 25, 1853, and is son of Thomas and Nancy (Dillard) Baldwin. The mother was a native of Indiana, her parents being pioneers of that state. Thomas Baldwin was a native of North Carolina, born in 1819. His parents were North Carolinians. His father was killed, while serving as constable of his native county. He was called to the door of his house one night, and when he opened the door, was shot. In 1829, his widow, with her family moved to Indiana, and settled in Hancock County, which was then a wilderness. Here Thomas Baldwin, the father of Jackson, grew to manhood, and was married. In 1854, he migrated to Monroe County, Iowa, with his family..."

In view of the above, we now have the seventh child, Thomas, and know what happened to the father. Joseph was murdered prior to 1829 while serving as a constable in Wilkes County, North Carolina. (lt 4/6/2013)

PLEASE: You are welcome to use this bio (in part or in whole), but if you do, give credit to me (the author) with reference also to Find A Grave. Thanks, Louise Taraba in Missouri.
