Someone has made a mistake in identifying the Thomas Baldwin who was listed in the Patriot index of the DAR records. Another researcher gave me some Virginia records; a list ofTithables, between Bush and Buffalo Rivers, taken by Thomas Scott, June 1755, Prince Edward Co., VA.
On pg.331 Thomas Baldwin is listed with John Baldwin, Caleb Baldwin and three slaves.This would be Thomas Baldwin Sr.
On the following page 332, 1755 List of Tithables, from Buffalo to the County line another Thomas Baldwin is listed who paid 1 tithe on himself, Thomas Baldwin Jr. who could not have been born 1741/42 and be head of his household the year 1755.
Thomas Baldwin Sr. had a son, William Baldwin b. ca. 1721 who married Anne Wimbish.They had a son Thomas Baldwin who could have been the Rev. War Soldier. He would have been the right age and living in Prince Edward County during the Civil War.
I tried searching for a Rev. War Pension application for a Thomas Baldwin of Prince Edward Co., VA, but could not find one. I have found mistakes in the DAR records I have ordered for my Baldwin ancestor.
