Baldwin, David

I am looking for any info I can find on a David Baldwin born abt 1810 Massachusetts
who married a Sarah Darling born abt 1810 Rhode Island. They had a daughter
Sarah Darling Baldwin born 20 Nov 1839 in Rockford, winnebago, Illinois. They
also had a son, name unknown, born abt 1835 in rockford, winnebago, Illinolis.
I do not know where and when they married, possibly rockford, winnebago, Ill.
They only info I can find on them is a 1840 federal census, which puts four
people in the household, two adults 30-39 and two childred under the age of
five. I also found an 1841 land record in Rockford, Winnebago, Ill for a David
Baldwin. Any info you have on them, or can find, would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance.

On the Winnebago side of "The Pioneer's of Winnebago and Boone Counties,
Illinois who came before 1841" I have 3 Baldwins pg 20

DAVID BALDWIN was aged 30-40 in 1840 and had a household of one female 30-40,
one male and one female under 5. He bought land 23 Oct. 1839 in New Milford

1840 p. 434; FD V 706 p. 19.

The other Baldwin is a Thomas Baldwin who doesn't appear to be connected to
the family, however, if he is in your family tree, please don't hesitate to
let me know and I will send you that info also.

Checking the Boone county side of the book, I didn't find any Baldwins.


Winnebago Blog

The blog is a new feature here and will be used as a device to share info, answer queries and generally just communicate. I am hoping that it will increase the number of submissions to the site, without putting a lot of extra load on myself. I stay plenty busy and I love every minute of it. Believe me, if I didn't, I wouldn't do it. I'm sort of stubborn that way. We can learn so much more by interaction than we can by keeping everything a secret, so feel free to flap your jaw about your ancestors. Let's see how many families we can connect.
