Jeremiah Wallace Baldock Chilton Times December 13, 1919

VETERAN IS CALLED Was A Pioneer of Chilton Town
Calumet County deeply mourns the death of Jeremiah W. Baldock which occurred at his home in Brant on Friday morning, Dec. 5th, following a stroke of apoplexy. Mr. Baldock had been suffering from heart affection for about two years, and at times was quiet sick, but immediately preceding his death he was in excellent health for him, giving no premonition of his passing. On Wednesday, following his custom he walked to his mail box, a distance of about a half mile, for his daily paper and on Thursday forenoon he was able to do light work about the house. At the noon hour Thursday he suffered a stroke of apoplexy and at eight o'clock the next morning passed away, completing a life work that was remarkable in many respects.

Jeremiah Wallace Baldock, son of Edward and Ruth Baldock, was a native of Parma, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, where he was born March 11, 1842. He came with his parents to Wisconsin in 1852 locating at Hayton, this county. The following year they moved to the town of Chilton where he received a common school education and later engaged in farming. Always extremely patriotic his blood was at boiling heat when Fort Sumter was fired upon precipitating the Civil War, and although but a boy in his teens he enlisted in Company A, 18th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry in 1861 and was transferred to Co. K in March 1862. He was a fighter from the moment he entered Uncle Sam's service. His courage was undaunted and his good spirits helped in a great measure to keep up the morale of his comrades. In the winter of 1863-64 he re-enlisted as a veteran at Huntsville, Ala., and took active part in many of the hardest fought battles of the civil war. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Shiloh on April 6, 1862 and was among the number of Wisconsin paroled prisoners sent to quell the Indian disturbances of 1862 in this state. Rejoining his regiment at Vicksburg in May 1863 he was in time to take part in the siege of that city as well as in the battles around Chatanooga in the fall of the year. He was also with the regiment in guarding the railroads and skirmishing at Allatoona, Ga., and took part in the memorable chase after Gen. Wheeler through east and middle Tennessee in August 1864. He served in the battles of Allatoona, and Kingston, N. C., was present at the surrender of Johnson and review at Washington, D. C. He earned three promotions from private to corporal, sergeant and lieutenant.

After an honorable discharge from the army Mr. Baldock returned to Chilton Town where he resumed the work of farming and steadily advanced to a prominent place in the community, county and state. On March 10, 1868 he was married to Miss Lavantia Chapin of Chilton town who survives him

He is survived by his widow, two sons, Jay W. Baldock of Hilbert, Arthur Baldock on the homestead and two daughters, Mrs. Math. Brill of South Kaukauna and Mrs. John Davis, Jr., of Chilton. He is also survived by four grand children. (edited for length)
