'It is noted that census and LDS records list him as Edward Baldwin, husband of Josephine D. Baldwin from 1870 to 1900 and also that his middle initial goes from S to L...which is understandable with script. The 1910 census, however, DOES list him as Edwin S. and all this data corresponds with the prior census information. I deduce that Edward=Edwin, and deduce that he went by Ed; which was misinterpreted as Edward. Further, the 1900 states that Josephine has been married 37 years (1900-37=1863, the year Josephine D. Black m. Edwin S. Baldwin.'
