Baldwin, Jeremiah

Baldwin, Jeremiah a Free-will Baptist minister, was born in Strafford, Vt., in 1798, and while a child removed to Bethany, N. Y. His early life was one of hardship and self-denial. While keeping a public-house in Ellington, he was converted in 1832, and at once began to hold meetings and exhort others to become Christians. He was licensed in 1833, and for many years preached in Ellington and the surrounding towns. He was ordained in 1840. Being diffident about receiving anything for his ministerial services, it is said that not so much as ten dollars were paid to him during all his term of service for preaching. He removed. to Hillsdale, Mich., in 1861, where he resided during nearly all the remainder of his life. At that time Rev. Dr. E. B. Fairfield, his son-in-law, was president of Hillsdale College. Mr. Baldwin died in Byron, Shiawasse Co., Mich., March 8, 1878. See Morning Star, May 22, 1878. (J. C. S.)
