1804, in ]\Ieriden, Conn.; ra., 14 April, 1830, Lydia Rice, b. 5
Feb., 1800, dan. Ezekiel, of Meriden. His name, from the two
famons preachers, Jesse Lee and Freeborn Garretson, shows his
father's predilection, and he has been all his life an active, zealous
Christian; a Methodist, hut not sectarian in feeling. He was very
active in the Anti-Slavery cause, when to be active required
courage, and in 1835, was mobbed with Garrison, in his home at
Middletown, Conn. He resolutely used none but free-labor goods,
and outside of his regular business, kept such goods for others.
He was a candidate on the Anti-Slavery ticket for Governor vf
Connecticut. He has lived to see no more to he done for the
Anti-Slavery cause. He has always been as strong an enemy to
drunkenness, and in 1876 was the Prohibition candidate for Gov-
ernor of Connecticut, a candidacy he had previously tilled, and
thirty years after he was the Anti-Slavery candidate.

He commenced business as a merchant and manufacturer of
silver spoons, with his brother Seymour, in the little town of
Oxford, Conn, — the sales being partly by peddlers sent around the
country under the firm of J. & S. Baldwin. In 1832, they moved
the business to Middletown, Conn. In 1835, Se^ymour moving-
west, he continued the business, and then went into the profitable
manufacture of plated ware. Being severely attacked by con-
sumption, he resolutely gave up his business entirely and warred
with the disease w^ith the same steady courage he has exhibited
in politics, and in a few years was entirely recovered. In 1858,



Richard, of 3Iilford, Connecticut. 147

he became President of the Central Bank of Middletown, the
stock of which, under his management, rose from |55 to ^105 per
share, par being $75. He is still the President of the Central
I^ational Bank. ]Ie has been also President of the People's In-
surance Company of Middletown, an unambitious and successful
institution since its foundation in 18(37.

908. Mary Ann, 18 Feb., 1S81, iu Oxford, Conn. ; resides in Middletown, Conn.,
where she is noted for her musieal talent cultivated here ami abroad. She is
wedded to the piano.

904. Harriet Eice, 8 Oct., 1883, in ]\Iiddleton, Conn. She was a person of fine
mind, excellent education, a good classical scholar, and a person of thorough,
intelligent religious convictions. She was a teacher, from the desire to be useful.
After the recent war she Avent South in that capacity to the freedmen, and fell a
victim to the climate. She d. num. at Eufala, Ala., 28 March, 1870.

905. Maria Antoinette, 22 Nov., 1835; d. num., July, 1861. She was a charm-
ing person, with an excellent, well trained mind, and great and quick intelligence.
She exhibited at times a high poetic temperament. She wrote seldom, but her
minor pieces are worthy to live. She liked only the short ones, written spontan-
eous!}'.

908. Lydia Elizabeth, 24 May, 1844; d. 4 Oct., 1863. Her life, to quote a
Middletown paper, was singularly adorned by an even, happy temper, her character
was strong and harmonious.

Mrs. Lydia Baldwin d. 18 May, 1876. Her life was one of very
great usefulness and active charity. She seemed to the writer as
goed a woman as he ever knew, and withal of an excellent good
judgment in all matters of life: her kindness was beyond all
praise.

382. .SEYMOUK WESLEY - Charles^ Sylvanus,^ b.iuMeriden,
Conn., 29 July, 1807. He was educated at district school, and at
the Episcopal Academy at Cheshire, Conn. Some time before
manhood, he commenced life as a Yankee peddler, lirst in the
^STorth and then in the South. When twenty-one, he became a

In 1831, the firm of J. & S. Baldwin moved to ^[iddletown,
Conn., and Sej'mour in Ma}', 1835, to Elyria, Lorain county, Ohio,
Mr. Baldwin has been a man of great power of endurance, energy
and ability in his business as amerchant. He adopted and insisted
upon the one-price cash system, and, by the small margin at which
his mercantile skill and system enabled«him to sell goods, has done
much to enrich the countv where he has lived. His business has
been very large for a country merchant.

In 1847, having ac(|uired such a competence as he had fixed
upon when he first went to Elyria, he returned to Meriden. He
was there soon engaged in various business, being President of



Richard, of 3Iilford, Connecticat. !1

the Meriden Macliiue Coinpanj, the tirst President of the IIoi
Bank, now Home National Bank, as well as a partner in a l>ai
ing firm in Cleveland, Ohio.

In 1856, he resigned the presidency of the Home Bank, ai
retnrned to Eh'ria and his original business, his firm also esta
lishing a branch store in Wellington, in the same county. Attl
two stores, the sales reached over four hundred thousand dolln
per annum, besides produce, in which a large business was don«
p.aying cash, or goods at cash price, as the farmer preferred. Tl
two firms continue under the name of Baldwin, Laundon & C
in Wellino-ton, and Baldwin, Lersch & Co. in Elvria. Mr. Baldw.
has been contented with modest profits; but, on the other banc
has never done business at a loss. He has been a model merchant
He still resides in Elyria, interested in business, but not giving il
