Baldwin, Thomas

Baldwin, Thomas D.D., a Baptist minister, was born at Bozrah, Conn., Dec. 23, 1753, and died at Waterville, Me., Aug. 29, 1826. Though educated among Pedobaptists, he adopted Baptist views, and was baptized by immersion in 1781. In the following year he began to preach, and was ordained in 1783 pastor of the Baptist church in Canaan, N. H., where he was residing. In 1790 he removed to Boston, taking charge of the Second Baptist Church in that place. In 1794 he received the degree of A.M. from Brown University, and in 1803 that of D.D. from Union College. From the latter year till his death he was the chief editor of the "Mass. Bapt. Miss. Magazine," published in Boston. Dr. Baldwin published several pamphlets on baptism and communion, besides "A Series of Letters in Answer to the Rev. Samuel Worcester," published in 1810, and various tracts and sermons. — Sprague, Annals, 6:208; Mass. Bapt. Miss. Mag. v.
