Benjamin Franklin Baldwin was an older brother to our ancestor, Francis Marion Baldwin. He was born in Illinois a couple years before the family moved to Texas in 1838. He lived in Limestone & Walker Counties in Texas. He married Maggie Mosely Guerrant on 18 Feb 1859. They had one son, Benjamin Franklin Baldwin, Jr.
B.F. Baldwin was sheriff of Walker county Texas the year before he died (1868-1869).
Below are copies of the B.F. Baldwin Bible pages I received in 1986 from a B.F. Baldwin descendant.
