About Mary Catlin

MARY2, Joseph1

Mary Baldwin is a great personage in my ancestry. John Catlin and wife Mary (Baldwin) Catlin

Mary Baldwin, dau. of Joseph Baldwin and Hannah Whitlock, was b. c1644 in Milford Ct. and bapt there June 23, 1644. She m. with JOHN CATLIN. They rem. to Hadley, Mass. before rem. again to Deerfield, Mass. It was there that the family suffered terribly during the Indian raid on that community.

No family suffered more than his in the destruction of the town on 29 February 1704. He was killed trying to defend their house. Their sons Joseph and Jonathan were also killed. Their married daughters Mary French and Elizabeth Corse were killed during the subsequent march to Canada.

Mary (Baldwin) Catlin, "being held with the other prisoners in John Sheldon's house, gave a cup of water to a young French officer who was dying. He was perhaps a brother of Hertel de Rouville. May it not have been gratitude for this act that she was left behind when the order came to march? She died of grief a few weeks later."
