BALDWIN, Thomas, clergyman, born in Bozrah, Connecticut, 23 December 1753; died in Waterville, Maine, 29 August 1825. He removed to Canaan, New Hampshire, which town he represented in the legislature, united with the Baptist Church in 1780, was ordained as an evangelist in June 1783, and was a traveling minister among the scattered settlements of New Hampshire until November 1790, when he was installed pastor of the second Baptist Church in Boston. In 1803 he began the publication of the "Massachusetts Baptist Missionary Magazine," afterward the "American Baptist Missionary Magazine," which he edited until his death. He published "Open Communion Examined" (1789), and other writings on the subject of communion and baptism, the chief of which was a "Series of Friendly Letters in which the Distinguishing Sentiments of the Baptists are Explained and Vindicated" (Boston, 1810), besides numerous sermons.
