About Eleanor Ward

We have searched in historical records for the Dodd, Ward, and Baldwin families and cannot find any evidence for the parents of Eleanor Ward. She may be a Baldwin, but other than one Ancestry family tree, none of the family histories - including CC Baldwin - links her to a Baldwin father.

Therefore we are showing her without parents, but would be happy to connect her to parents, should someone have evidence as to her parents.

The Ancestry tree has her as the daughter of Benjamin Baldwin of Bloomfield and Rebecca Dodd. She is not listed with Benjamin Baldwin's children elsewhere. Rebecca Dodd is also problematic.

'She is NOT daughter of Jonathan Baldwin and Susannah Kitchell... #32

Married Lawrence Ward, her first cousin; see Lawrence Ward's profile.

Children of Lawrence Ward and Eleanor Baldwin:

  1. Samuel Lawrence - b. 1748
  2. Jacob - b. 1750
  3. Jonathan (Jonas) - b. abt. 1752
  4. Stephen - b. abt. 1754
  5. Cornelius - b. abt. 1756
  6. Margaret - b. abt. 1758
  7. Phebe - b. about 1760

Note that Stephen and Phebe are Dodd family names. If Rebecca Dodd was the mother of Eleanor Baldwin apparently, this would make sense.
