About Hannah Baldwin

This person is interesting in that she is the start of a line that includes us (descendants of his daughter Sarah) as well as the 43rd president of the United States (descendant of her son Benjamin).

Apparently she and her husband came over on the ship with no children circa 1639. Joseph's wife Hannah joined the Church June 23,1644, and their first four children were there baptised. About 1663, he removed to Hadley,Mass., was made a freeman there, with his son Joseph in 1666.

Hannah Whitlock married Joseph Baldwin in High Wycombe, Bucks, England in 1636, and they came over to New England on the ship Martin with about 25 other Baldwin relations including Joseph's brothers Timothy and Nathaniel..

Concerning John Whitlock who died in 1659 in Fairfield,CT - some he was a brother to Hannah and came over with her on the ship Martin in 1638. I have him listed as her father, just a guess.

Joseph and Hannah had the following children:

i. Joseph BALDWIN, born 1640

ii. Benjamin BALDWIN, born 1642 (GW Bush's line)

iii. Hannah BALDWIN, born 1644, married Jeremiah HULL of New Haven

iv. Mary BALDWIN, born 1645, married John CATLIN of Arthur Kill, NJ

v. Elizabeth BALDWIN, born 1646, married James WARRINER of Springfield

vi. Martha BALDWIN, born 1647, died before 1680? married

John HAWKES of Hatfield MA

vii. Jonathan BALDWIN, born 1649, ancestor of Thomas Edison

viii. David BALDWIN, born 1651

ix. Sarah BALDWIN (our line), born 6 Nov 1653, Milford CT, died 16 Jan 1716, Northampton MA
