Dr. Isaac Baldwin (1755-1814) married Sarah Leavenworth,
the daughter of Waterburys Congregational minister
Rev. Mark Leavenworth. The Baldwins had three children.
Their eldest daughter married Dr. Edward Field; following
her death, Field married the Baldwins youngest daughter.
The Baldwins middle daughter never married.
Dr. Baldwins home was on Grand Street. He was a surgeons
mate during the Revolutionary War and was a member of the
County Medical Society. His wife died in 1793, and Dr. Baldwin
moved to Massachusetts in 1797. His daughters lived with
their grandmother, Sarah Leavenworth.
The 1790 federal census listed one slave living in Dr.
Baldwins household. This may have been one of the
women, Peg and Phillis, owned by the Leavenworth family:
only one slave is listed in 1790 in the Leavenworth household,
but there are two in 1800, by which time Baldwin had moved
away and his daughters were living with the Leavenworths.
