Dec. 14, 1701. At thirteen, he came under the tuition of his
brother,' Rev. Ebenezer, of Danbury. A rumor having reached
Danbury of the Battle of Bunker Hill, he was sent oa horseback
tifteen miles to the clergyman of iTew Milford, to borrow a paper
containing the account of it. On his return, the inhabitants
assembled to hear it read. His brother d., in 1776, of exposure in
the Revolution. In 1777, he entered Yale, and graduated in 1781,
and was the last survivor of the class. When the British attacked
ISTew Haven, he and a company of fellow students joined the
forces to resist them at "Neck Bridge." In 1783, he became Tutor
at Yale. In 1786, he was admitted to the bar. Four years after,
he became Clerk of the United States Court, and continued an
extensive practice in the State Court until 1803, when he became
Representative in Congress. He declined a re-election in 1805.
In 1806, he was appointed, by the Legislature, Judge of the Supreme
Court of the State, and continued by annual appointment (then
the custom) for eleven years. In 1822, he was President of the
Farmington Canal; in 1826, Mayor of New Haven. He declined
further public office, but practised law until within a few years of
his death. He m., in 1787, Rebecca Sherman, dau. of the Hon.

134. Benjamin.

January 6, 1806, he was Deacon at Sandisfield.

In February, 1880, after writing the account of Samuel and his
father, and having, after much labor, and two or three changes of
opinion, placed Benjamin in this line, I am furnished by C. W.
Bryant, Esq., of Granville, with extracts from a History of Gran-
ville, by Rev. Jacob Little, D.D., published not far from 1850, in
the ^^ Observer,'' of Hudson, Obio.

In Granville, Feb. 17, 1823, Deacon Samuel Baldwin died, aged
63 yrs. He was descended from a pious family in Lebanon, Conn.
He removed to Otis, Mass., when he was five years old ; when
thirteen, his father died, and he took care of the family till he was
twenty-four. When converted, " he thought he could not live in
a world so wicked, and meditated the life of a hermit." " He
sometimes had such strong views of heavenly things as to take
aAvay his strength." The Church at Otis had no pastor, elected
him Deacon, and enjoyed a revival. He seems to have filled, in a
great degree, the pastoral office. He removed to Granville, Lick-
ing county, Obio, in 1810. In 1813, he was elected deacon. Very
few people seemed to live so near to God, and his modest, unas-
suming manners gave great eiiect to his prayers and exhortations.
Sometimes, when praying for his children or the church, he would
be so overcome as to stop. As be advanced in life, he grew in
grace, yet he saw but one of a large family of cl\ildren the subject
of grace. He often said, I leave them in the hands of God, who
will do them no injury. Within ten years after his death, all pro-
fessed their faith in Christ. He was sick for a long time with
consumption. He requested his wife to tell him when he was

dying, saying he feared it no more than going to sleep. When
the time came, he was lying with the palm of his hand under one
cheek. Some said, " How sweetly he sleeps ! " In a moment he
was gone. All the family left Granville many years ago, and I
have failed to trace them.

by the name of Eames, and removed to Canaan, IS". H. His mother,
says the author of his memoir, was remarkable for talent, and a
woman of eminent pietj'. He early read sermons in Canaan, and
before he was thirty was elected to the General Court from that
town. At the age of twenty-two, on the 22nd of September, 1775,

eminent Baptist clergyman. He was settled in Boston, Nov. 11,
1790. He was in his ministry faithful, affectionate and devoted,
and very successful. In 1803, he commenced the publication of
the '•''American Baptist Magazine,'' of which he was sole, and then
senior editor until his death. A controversial work, in answer
to Rev. Samuel Worcester, is considered his ablest effort. In
1803, he received the degree of D.D. at Union College. He was
long Trustee of Brown University, and of Waterville College,
Maine. He died while on a visit to Waterville, Aug. 28, 1824.
He died almost instantly. " Spared the pain of death, and agonies
of separation, he was not, for God took him." He was rather
above the usual size, firmly built, and as he grew old inclined to
corpulency. His countenance was dignified, mild and engaging ;
his hair in later years white, so that his appearance was very
venerable. A memoir, by Rev. Daniel Chessman, was published
in Boston in 1826, eighty-four pages ; appended is a list of publi-
cations, thirty-one sermons, and six other works. Miss Caulkins
says the native vigor of his intellect was equal to all demands
made upon it, and he exerted a powerful inHueuce in favor of his
denomination.
