Baldwin, Truman

Baldwin, Truman a Presbyterian minister, was born at East Granville, Mass., Sept. 27, 1780. He fitted for college in his native town, and graduated at New Haven in 1802. He then studied theology for three years. The Hampshire South Association licensed him in 1804, and, full of the missionary spirit, he went to a vacant field in Vermont, and then, in 1807, undertook a pastorate at Charlotte in that state. His'seven years there were highly prosperous. hI 1815 he accepted the invitation to the recently organized Church at Pompey East Hollow, N.Y. Here he labored thirteen years, and then, in 1829, took charge at Cicero. During his residence in both of these places, he did much mission work. established several churches, and helped four candidates for the ministry to enter college. Ill-health caused him to suspend his activity for a time. He resumed labor at East Aurora for one year and at Darien Centre for another year, and then accepted a call to Somerset, Niagara Co., where he spent four years. Unable to continue the pastoral work, he opened a classical school at Middlefort, and promoted religion in the community so that a flourishing Presbyterian Church sprang up. He died at Cicero, N. Y., July 27, 1865. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Amanac, 1867, p. 272; Presbyterianism in Central New York, p. 456.
