Jeanetta M. T. Moore was the youngest child of Bud Mathis Moore and Martha Brown Coulter. There are a couple of obvious gaps in this family: father William Warren Baldwin and daughter Eliza Baldwin. I have only been able to find William Warren Baldwin on one census so far (1860); by 1870, Jeanetta is a widow. According to the Bud Mathis Moore Family materials of J. Furman Moore, “William Baldwin fought with the Confederate Army the entire duration of the war, and died of Typhoid Fever in Greensboro, N.C. on the day that Lee surrendered. Rests at Greensboro, N.C.” I could put the date of Lee’s surrender as his date of death, but I would like to find further evidence for this date before I do so. This is about the sum total of what I know about William Warren Baldwin. I have seen online genealogies indicating that his parents were R. Berry and Permilla Baldwin, and I believe that he was a cousin of Mary Ann Elizabeth Baldwin, who married Jeanetta’s brother Samuel Alexander Moore. One of these genealogies indicates that he was born in 1833 in Mississippi. I have based Martha Emma Baldwin’s name on census information, but the online genealogies give her name as Emma Dora.

The following from the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System may refer to William Warren Baldwin:

W. W. Baldwin, Confederate
2 South Carolina Infantry 2 Palmetto Regiment, Company B, Private-Private

Eliza is also still a mystery, one of numerous sisters in my Greenville County and Anderson County families who is hard to track down.

I would love to trade information on this family; you can contact me by clicking on the green “CONTACT” on the left side of this blog.
