Edward Lee "Ed" Baldwin
Birth: Mar. 23, 1880
Missouri, USA
Death: Feb. 5, 1960
Atoka County
Oklahoma, USA

Edward was the son of Sarah Catherine Collins, born in Arkansas. William Baldwin was Ed's adoptive father, and was from Iowa.

In Ed's teens, he worked as a farm laborer for his mother's brothers on The Collins Farm in Arch, Oklahoma.

He was married to a lady that I don't know the name of, and he had a few children, though all but one died of a Tuberculosis epidemic, as did his wife. I don't know what the child's name was that survived, but I believe it was a son. He later remarried after the child was of about adult age.

In 1925, Ed married Bessie McCutchan.

Ed's children with Bessie were: Dorothy Nadine "Nadine" Baldwin, and Edward Benjamin "Bud" Baldwin.

He worked for awhile as a lawman, but stopped doing that type of work, and started working as a farmer and blacksmith. Though he would volunteer as police when needed in the area.

Ed was friends with farming families in the area, and they'd help eachother farm during the season, then at the end, they would all get together and have a big feast.

Ed was always known for being very friendly and fun-loving; he never met a stranger. He liked to sing, dance, fish with his kids, smoke his pipe, and on occasion, have a bit of whiskey.

Ed had seven siblings: Anna "Annie" Baldwin-Wilcox, Maud Lenora Baldwin-McDaniel, William Luther "Doc" Baldwin, Lula Virginia "Lou" Baldwin-Ivey, Ethel Mae Baldwin-Giraudo, Irene "Rinie" Baldwin-Mosteller, and Frank James Baldwin

He passed away at the age of 79, and is buried next to his wife, Bessie.
