    • First child to survive to adulthood.

      On 7 Jul 1924 Leonard sent a post card to his wife. He was in Detroit, Michigan visiting Mrs. Sheldon.

      The house they rented in Ionia was rented from Mrs. Wooden and they paid $6.00 for rent, according to Leonard's journal.

      I have been told that Leonard and Caroline Baldwin lived int Bradley, MI in 1940. And the area that they lived became Plank Rd Farm. I need to look for proof of this.

      "... do you have a postcard picture of the threshing at Lou Wiedbrauk's in 1918? Unless I gave it away, I still have 2 copies. It appears that the grain separator has a conveyor for the straw instead of a blower as I remember them. ..."
