RE: Hi
Hi, April.

I'm not familiar with the Baldwin family, other than an Everett L. Baldwin married a cousin of mine named Frances "Fannie" L. Kidd Baldwin.

Yes, I'm related to several members of the Kidd family, but am not directly descended from a Kidd line itself. The Kidds married into several different branches of my family in Kentucky, including the Oaks family, which is how I'm related to Frances "Fannie." She is descended from Rebecca Oaks Kidd, and I'm descended from Rebecca's brother Lodowick Oaks.

Kidds also married into other branches of my Oaks family, as well as branches of my Harris family.

Runion connection
(Sorry about that, I hit a wrong key)
James and Sarah's children: Mary (Runion) Ashcraft, Amanda Louise "Mandy" (Runion) Smith/Cole/Tanner, Susan (Runion) Albertson, Isabel (Runion) Stewart, Sarah Jane (Runion) McCloud/Dickerson, Margaret Catherine (Runion) Albertson (my grandmother), William Newton "Will" Runion, George Runion, James "Jim" Runion,, John Runion, Hiram Runion, Nelson Alva Theodore "Nells" Runion, and Darius Runion.

My Mom's parents, Margaret Catherine and Joseph Bartley Albertson's children were: "Little" Eddie Albertson , Sarah Ellen (Albertson)Runion,(married her 1st cousin Clarence Runion s/o Uncle Hiram Runion, Erastus Ellsworth "Razz" Albertson, Charles Franklin "Charlie" Albertson, Retta Mae (Albertson) Runion, married her 1st cousin
Charles Edgar Runion, son of Uncle Will Runion, Homer Albertson, Mary Miralda Albertson (died at 6 months), Clara Bell (Albertson) Merritt (my Mom), and Minnie Marie Albertson (died young)

So in short....I think your husband descends from Aunt Rettie's son, Raymond, which would be my Mom's nephew and my 1st cousin. This is how I connect to the Runion. I know Mom mentioned Raymond a lot, and I believe was her favorite. She didn't say so, but he was born the same year
as my sister, and was probably the closest to my little brother, (my Mom's son) that died at 18 months.

Well that's part of the family history.

My great,great grandparents were Susannah Harrison
Leach) Hinesand John Hines, whose daughter was Sarah Ann (Hines) Runion, wife of James Eugene Runion. (I have a document that states he sometimes was called "Gene". I don't know who his parents were, however my Mom told me that she thought his father could have been James Sr. She did not know this for certain.
I do know who Susannh Harrison (Leach) Hines parents were. They were John and Mary (Hall) Leach. John Hines' parents were James and Sarah (Prichard) Hines, which would be my great,grea, great grandparents. Further done the line for you.

James and Sarah (Hines) Runion's children were:
