My sister and I are researching our paternal side of the family, but have hit a roadblock. If anyone can help us get beyond it we would be grateful. Here's what we have so far:
2x great grandfather - Benjamin F Baldwin, b. 10 Jun 1834 Griggsville, Pike, Illinois, married Mary Bloomfield
3x great grandfather - Sheldon Baldwin b. 20 Mar 1800 Litchfield, Litchfield, CT, married Adaline Elledge in Harrison Cty, IN, d. 20 Jun 1862 Griggsville, Pike, Illinois
4x great grandfather - John Baldwin, b. abt 1775 in CT / d. abt 1834, married Sarah Ann Hawkins b. abt 1774 in CT / d. abt 1822 in Milford, New Haven, CT.
We have John's children listed as: Sheldon, Lewis H, Catherine S, Elizabeth, Samuel G.
Beyond that, we don't have anything. There are a ton of Baldwins in the Connecticut area, and we haven't been able to tie John to one specific line. Nor can we find any information on Sarah Ann Hawkins.
If anyone can help us to further our search with both his and her parentage and back, we would appreciate it. Thanks!
Tracy and Jennifer Baldwin
