    Notes 
    • Earl Baldwin said that Ethel was Francis Brabon's aunt. He also said she had spelled her name as Ethyl until later in life, when she got a copy of her birth certificate and found out her name was spelled Ethel. Ethel was blind.

      Ethel was from a family of 10 children, I think maybe she was the youngest.

      Poem written by Ethyl M. Baldwin
      Dated Oct 20, 1943

      Our Guilding Star

      -1-
      The sky is all studded
      With bright shining stars,
      There's one way up younder
      'Tis Venus or Mars.
      I stand by the Window
      My mind wanders far,
      To where you are fighting
      'Neith our Guiding Star

      -2-
      Wherever you are dear,
      On land or on sea;
      That star way up yonder
      Will guide you to me.
      If your heart is aching,
      You're lonesome and blue;
      Look up at our star love,
      And dream of me too.

      -3-
      'Tho you're far away dear
      You're close to my heart.
      And always remember
      I love you sweet heart.
      When this war is over,
      Wherever you are;
      Remember my darling,
      Our Guiding Star.

      Dedicated to my husband Earl C. Baldwin, in the U.S. Army
