Biography of Charles L. Baldwin
Howard County, IN Biographies





CHARLES L. BALDWIN, son of George W. and Margaret Baldwin, was born in Fayette County, Ind., July 14, 1843, and is one of a family of four children, he and a sister, Dora, being the only survivors. In 1849, the parents moved to Tipton County, this State, and settled on 420 acres of land in Prairie Township, where they led the life of pioneers. Deer were abundant and wheat had to be taken to Logansport to be milled. There Mr. Baldwin received a common school education, and there he worked on the home farm until his enlistment, August 19, 1861, in the Seventy fifth Indiana Volunteer Infantry. He took part in several battles, and was wounded at Chickamanga, but after a furlough of twenty days returned to the front and marched with Sherman to the sea. He was mustered out at Washington, June 8, 18651 and then engaged in farming, and then in the butchering and grocery business at Russiaville, this county. He was burned out in 1881, and he then purchased and moved upon a farm northwest of Middleton. In 1867, he married Miss Lizzie Hopkins, of Clinton County, and to this union have been born two children-William F. and Jennie H. Mr. Baldwin is now Secretary of Neri Lodge, No. 358, I. O. O. F.; in politics he has always been a Republican, and is now Justice of the Peace of Harrison Township.
