Birth: Apr. 24, 1839
Crawford County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 8, 1915
Clay County
Kansas, USA

Ira Baldwin was the son of Joseph and Dorcas (King) Baldwin. He married Susan Vivian Cantonwine October 18, 1860 in Vinton, Benton county, IA. Susan was the daughter of Michael and Catherine (Myers/Myres) Cantonwine and the granddaughter of Charles and Mary Magdalena (Scholl) Cantonwine.

Charles, the patriarch of the Cantonwine family, immigrated to America from Prussia in 1806, arriving in Philadelphia, Penn., aboard the ship Orlando. The ship's passenger list shows "Chr. Kuntentwine, single man." The name Kuntentwine later evolved to Cantonwine, and Charles appears to be the only surnamed Kuntentwine/Cantonwine to immigrate to America. Eight or so years after his arrival in Philadelphia, in about 1814, Charles married Mary Magdalena Scholl, daughter of Charles Jacob & Margaret (Fuhr) Scholl, in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.
