Elisha was the son of Jabez Baldwin and Judith Brace. Elisha and his younger sister, Charlotte, were the only children born in Stratford. The older ones were born in Connecticut. His father had moved the family to Stratford in March 1788.

On March 10, 1818 in Stratford he married Huldah Alger, daughter of Edmund Alger and Huldah Lothrop.

Their children were Elisa Alger, William Lothrop, John Brace, Edmund Willis, Jedediah Miller, Lucinda Annette, and Annie Lucia.

Elisha, an excellent farmer, started with a farm stripped of tools and stock by the settlement of his father's estate. By his hard work and foresight he was able, in later years, to help his sons materially with their various business enterprises. Respected by his fellow townsmen he was generous, hospitable, a kind neighbor and lived a long and blameless life.
