From CC Baldwin, the most authoritative source on Baldwin descendants (out of copyright)

  • CC Baldwin has, on page 406...

Married Abigail Camp: Children were John (bpt 1644), Daniel (bpt 1644), Nathaniel (bpt 1645), and Abigail (bpt. 3/19/1648; d. in 1668 per Dr. Talcott.)

Married 2nd Joanna Westcoat, wifow of Richard Westcoat of Fairfiield, Conn. Children by her were: Sarah (b 1650), Deborah (b 1652), and Samuel (b 1655).

Thus had I written before the report of Mr. Chester, from England, which leaves no reasonable doubt that Nathaniel was the 2nd son of Richard, of Parish Cholesbury, Buckinghamshire, England and brother of Timothy and Joseph.

Mr. Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary, makes his widow Joanna marry Thomas Skidmore; but Mr. Byron A. Baldwin, a careful genealogist, descended of this line, states that she made a contract with Skidmore in regard to marriage, which was recorded, but DID NOT MARRY HIM. She married 3rd. George Abbott, of Fairfield, and died in 1682. She was a witness in a 'witch's' trial which is recounted on pg 407.

There is further reference to a Byron A. Baldwin, Esq. of Chicago, who printed in the "New England Historical and Genealogical Register" for April 1873, a partial Genealogy entitled: "Nathaniel Baldwin and one line of his Descendants."
