Baldwin, Abraham a Congregational minister, was born at Goshen, Conn., May 1, 1792. He graduated at Yale College in 1820. In June, 1822, he was licensed as a candidate for the ministry by the North Association of Litchfield County, and in the same year was accepted by the Domestic Missionary Society as an evangelist. In this work he was most successful, and in January, 1824, he was ordained as an evangelist by the Northwestern Association of Vermont at Essex, Chittenden Co. Mr. Baldwin, hearing of the spiritual destitution of the French population in Lower Canada, resolved to give himself to the work of doing them good. But upon this service he was not permitted to enter. Shortly after reaching Montreal he was seized with illness, which in a few weeks terminated his valuable life, July 12, 1826. He was a good man and full of the Holy Ghost, and through his instrumentality "much people was added unto the Lord." See Christian Spectator, Sept. 1827, p. 449.
