The fall of was finally chosen for the great trip to be made. One fine morning in September of that year Ebenezer Baldwin, Jr. The journey Vkllage with a long stagecoach ride from Whitehall to Albany, NY a distance of 60 miles. They rested in Albany overnight where they looked forward for the next day to take passage on one of the canal boats on the Erie Canal. These little Mill Village Erie PA Local Singles Chat were called packets, which were fitted out for passengers. It would take a little over 2 days of 24 hours each to travel through this canal.
It was a tedious time on the canal the average speed of the boat was about 14 miles in 15 hours; many times our Baldwin fellows jumped off the boat to the Sihgles ground and would walk or run along the smooth bank for miles. When they reached Buffalo, NY they took passage on one of the then most wonderful steamers that piled the Great Lakes. While on their lake journey on this steamer with its great moving paddle wheels an unfortunate experience Cha a dangerous and unpleasant character was about to happen.
Our Baldwin men started to notice that there was more excitement than common among the sailors who seemed to be hurrying from place to place over the boat, as though agitated with confusion of some kind, while at the same time the hissing of steam was more noticeable as its pressure was becoming more Mill Village Erie PA Local Singles Chat in the boiler room below.
The noise of the hissing Villzge was so great that all talking was out of the question, and matters looked so dangerous and threatening that Ebenezer and Washington hurried up the ladder to the main deck, expecting any moment that the overstrained boiler would explode! They finally reached the deck all panting and perspiring, they observed the folks on deck cheering with the crew of a competing boat which was racing alongside them in a reckless manner, with their steam also hissing and groaning, with every revolution of their paddle wheel.
Ebenezer took a look down the scuttle hole to Viillage the men were madly working, and by this means he came very close to losing his life, for VVillage was but a few minutes later, and our men Erje a safer area, Singes with a loud explosion the boiler blew up, scattering the hot pent up steam in every direction! Ebenezer with his face badly scorched, took hold of the situation and went to check on those men, he found them as expected, all dead with faces so disguised it was impossible to tell who was who.
The competing boat now ran alongside and took off the terrified passengers as fast as possible. They tottered over Singoes planks that were laid from boat to boat, being constantly rocked by the waves in dangerous positions.
The passengers quaked in fear as Lpcal pushed and scrambled from the disabled boat. One poor fellow fell from the Mil into the river and was never heard from again and our disabled steamer was charging down the river, seemingly now being bent on its own destruction. Our Baldwin representatives are now moving on again, being somewhat terrified, but they did not have far to go before they landed in Michigan. They also said that there were worlds of venomous snakes that hid in the sandy soil.
The friendly Hatch family learned they were looking for land and a place of settlement they wished to have them, if possible, for near neighbors, and proposed that they should inspect some unoccupied land that could be bought for a reasonable price about 2 miles distant on the flats of French Creek. The Hatch family said the greatest objection would probably be that at times the creek rose up high and flooded the land by turning it into a small lake, which was inconvenient and almost dangerous to contemplate.
But Erue bugaboo story about Vkllage overflow instead of intimidating our much interested Baldwin men, only made them the more anxious to not only to see put to possess some of this flat land on the creek.
Nichols, the owner. The piece of land contained some acres with a frontage on French Creek wide enough to suit their fancy, and ran back on higher ground far enough for dry pastures and suitable building places. In after years I have heard them say that they never regretted for a single day the wise selection of this beautiful cut of land.
Copy of the deed of this land from Mr.
Josiah M. Nichols to Ebenezer Baldwin was recorded on October 10, in the county deed book. The land had a very smart supply of plums, wild grapes, fish in the big creek, generous supply of water in flooding time, heavy timber, and last but not least, the numerous wild animals that swarmed through the woods for nightly entertainment as Lcoal as profit for oLcal table when meat was scarce. Feeling highly pleased with the final outcome of their great undertaking and long, pleasant journey they turned their footsteps back towards their home and kindred which they had left in Siingles, NY, who, they felt certain would be as well PPA as themselves with their future home they had just purchased on the flats of the big stream in Erie County, Pennsylvania.
The Baldwin Family Arrives In Amity Township In the summer ofWashington Baldwin made his appearance by bringing his little family with him, arriving in a big covered wagon and a very fine team which they had Sinfles all the way from Whitehall, NY, stopping overnight as the necessity required, and traveling constantly from day to day until the long journey of about miles was finally accomplished.
The valuable team and wagon they told me, was at once exchanged for a small piece of land situated near the Alder Run bridge where the road running from Wattsburg to Waterford now crosses this little stream.
There were precious few acres of land already cleared surrounding the small frame house which they quickly accepted as their abiding place in this great wilderness, while the lucky man who had been the former owner of the property cheerfully vacated the place and took possession of the spirited team to emigrate back to Whitehall in the same location where the Baldwin family had just come from.
He soon found that is was quite easy for him to get his supply of meat from the woods, he captured deer, turkeys and other game which provided to be a very toothsome meat for his scanty table. The family lived in a log house for several years before their commodious frame dwelling was erected on the beautiful site where Mr. Judson Stowe now resides. Ebenezer Baldwin was now 54 years of age; his son Washington 27, son David 14, and son Hibbard His sons Reuben, Hiram, Calvin, and Hezekiah had not so far yet made their appearance, but they came along later, all the brothers finally coming to the county except Ambrose Baldwin who stayed in Whitehall, NY.
It was a sad fact that Grandfather Ebenezer Baldwin failed to live long enough after coming to his new home in Erie County, his life was cut short with some kind of heart trouble, he was buried in the neighborhood cemetery at Milltown on October 1, He was united in marriage to Luzetta M. Brooks of Whitehall, NY on December 5, They would have 10 children, 7 girls and 3 boys. Of these children, 5 would die as children. George Washington Baldwin was the first road commissioner of Amity Township and was also elected to various other town offices.
Besides being a farmer he was in the business of stone and plastering mason. He offered his services in the Civil War inbut was rejected because of his age. It is told the George Washington Baldwin was a man of pronounced opinions and correct principles, was industrious and successful.
He was widely known in his area and much respected. He and Luzetta were devoted church members and was class leader for many years. George Washington Baldwin passed away on September 11, at the age of 81 and was buried in the Milltown Cemetery. Phoebe Jane borndied Abigail F. Cox in in Erie; died on April 23, in Erie County. Anson B. A story that made Alexander Donaldson quake with fear as he considered how dangerous it was.
Uncle Wash went far down the creek one cold winter's day taking a dog with him. He had his ice skates buckled on his feet and took snowshoes along so that he might be prepared for either the creek ice or heavy snows of the forest. He said he must have gone about 20 miles down the stream catching several foxes along the way.
He decided to stop and build a little fire and enjoy his luncheon, he then notices that it is late and darkness is coming fast. He concluded that it was high time to start home, so without the least misgivings he buckled his skates and started off. He glided along happily until he noticed the dog seemed to be very uneasy and occasionally would give a low whine and sometimes a growl, causing Washington to stop and look around and listen, but he was unable to see or hear anything.
He tried to quiet the dog but couldn't so "Uncle Wash" used the old Indian Singlfs of lying down with his ear Vilkage to the ice, when to his astonishment he could hear Singlees howl of many wolves far in the distance. Washington quickly got up and hurried his pace for his journey home. He went about a mile further when he stopped again and could distinctly hear their howling without the extra trouble of putting his ear to the ice.
Washington began to Villxge scared.
For if the wolves got scent of his game pelts and he had so little rEie left he knew he would be an easy victim to the wolves. He thought of his dear wife and SSingles as he passed over the ice thinking of how he was now being hunted by the wolves. His mind was working fast even though it was filled with dread and fear; he finally came upon a scheme that was his last hope.
