    • Caleb Clark Baldwin and Eliza Robinson Baldwin
      by Wallace R. Baldwin

      from http://www.angelfire.com/ak2/torikline/baldgen/calebc.htm

      Caleb Clark Baldwin, was born 03 Jun 1817 at Warrensville Cuyahoga,Ohio. He was the 2nd child and first son born to Caleb Baldwin and Nancy Kingsbury. He was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on 01 Jan 1831. On 29 Oct 1837 he married Ann Eliza ROBINSON daughter of George ROBINSON and Mary LOCH at Far West, Missouri. Ann Eliza was born 15 Aug 1819 in Monroe, Ouchita, Louisiana.

      At the time his father immigrated to Utah in 1848, Caleb Clark was in government service in Missouri. He immigrated to Utah with his family in 1852. At that time his family consisted of four sons and two daughters.

      In the fall of 1852 the family settled in Provo, Utah. They had only been there a short time when the youngest boy named George Henry Baldwin died. Three children were born while they lived in Provo. One daughter and two sons.

      The family endured many trying experiences with the Indians. One story is told of a time they were hunting for roots, when they caught sight of an Indian skulking through the trees. They hid themselves in the underbrush and waited. All night they remained in their hiding place. At dawn the Indians finally left and the family was able to return to their home.

      During the year of 1865, Caleb Clark BALDWIN was called by Brigham Young to help settle an area called the Muddy, which later became the town of St. Thomas. By this time the sons had grown enough to be a big help to their parents. The family sold everything they owned in preparation for leaving. The "Muddy Valley" located in the southern part of Clark County, Nevada was in the very southeastern tip of Nevada. In December 1870 the people voted to abandon the settlements because of the taxes levied against them by the State of Nevada. After some time Caleb Clark was released from his mission, so that he might bring his wife back to receive medical attention. She was very ill so she stayed with here daughters in Mona, Juab, Utah. She died in Mona 11 Feb 1873 at the age of 64. She was buried in Provo, Utah, Utah. Caleb Clark Baldwin died in Beaver, Beaver, Utah at the age of 88 on 02 Jan 1905. He and his sons helped settle Beaver, Utah after they left the "Muddy".
