Obituaries Page*

* These are transcriptions from newspaper published obituaries, every effort has been made to stay accurate with what was printed even though some errors have been spotted. The idea being to preserve the tone and color found in many obituaries. Where there is a name and no entry means we are still hunting. Where a name and date appear I have an obituary but need time to enter it. Not presented in order of death but rather grouped by husband-wife-child.

    Inclusion on this page has been restricted to those persons leading up to my Grandfather Charles Lee Baldwin and his wife, my Grandmother Rosella (Lee) Baldwin their offspring and grandchildren. My records include 'obits' for many other family members.
