Wow! That is an amazing amount of information! I'm pretty new to geneaology; I'm still getting my feet wet with learning how to gather information, so I am completely and utterly impressed!
I'm a descendant through Wesson Baldwin and Eliza Nickerson's daughter, Loretta Baldwin Hill. Our branch of the family stayed in Kansas while Loretta herself eventually went to be with the rest of the family in Washington. We did know in the family records that Ransom was lent out to a neighboring family. I dont know if it says that they as well were relatives or Baldwins - I'll have to see if it mentions an uncle or not.
Just wanted to let you know, you've made my day! Thanks Betty!
