Hi, my name is Staci Baldwin. I am the youngest grandchild of Emma (Shaw) Baldwin and Frederick Baldwin. I have recently became very interested in researching my family history, and I really don't know where to get started. My immediate family members are really of no help whatsoever. My grandmother is still living, but her hearing is starting to go, which makes it very difficult to ask her any questions.
Emma Ellen (Shaw) Baldwin was born on October 12, 1910, along with her twin, in Paulding County (Cecil Ohio). Her parents were Mittie (Breece) Shaw and Thomas Shaw. Some of her siblings were: Nora, Hank, Oscar, Anna (her twin, who passed away when they were young), Florence, Viola, Zelpha, Norman, Ralph, Vernie, Bud, and Landy were all of the names that my dad remembered, but he said that Landy and Ralph might be the same person he isn't sure.
Thomas and Mittie Shaw lived on a farm, that they owned, in Cecil Ohio (Paulding County).
Emma Shaw married Frederick Baldwin, from Sherwood Ohio, in 1928. Frederick worked for the railroad in Wabash Tower. They had two children: Dora Mae (Baldwin) Cone in 1929 and James Lamar Baldwin on December 2, 1939. They lived in Toledo, Ohio. Their last residence was on the East Side of Toledo on White Street. Frederick passed away on December 15, 1993 and Emma currently resides with her daughter in South Toledo.
If anyone has any information about the Shaw family, please let me know.
