Hi Kelly! I was really excited to see your post. It has been awhile since I looked at letters on this surname site. My great - great - grandmother was a Mewshaw. The family was from Baltimore.Elizabeth Mewshaw (1808-1885) married my gg grandfather William Baldwin. The family lived in or around Anne Arundel and/or Howard counties. Elizabeth Mewshaw was the daughter of Joseph and Parthenia (Mitchell) Mewshaw. They were both born in 1776.They were married in 1800.Other siblings of Elizabeth were: Joseph (1804), William (1802), Mary (1806), Hezekiah(1811), Dennis (1819) and Caleb (?) I don't have information on Joseph Sr.'s brothers and sisters, but it is likely that Hamutel is related. I hope this helps some - you haven't come across any Baldwin information from the late 1700's have you?I am stuck and unable to find the father of William Baldwin - he was born in 1802 - probably in Anne Arundel or Howard county, Maryland.Happy Hunting!
