Samuel Davies Baldwin was born in Worthington, Ohio, Nov. 24, 1818. His parents were Presbyterians, and named their son Samuel Davies, in honor of the celebrated and distinguished Virginia minister of that name. They were poor, but highly respectable. Unable to educate their son and subsist a large family in the manner they desired, young Samuel, at an early age, left home in pursuit of employment, that he might relieve his parents, and procure the means of an education. He devoted himself to hard labor as a mechanic, and on the steamers of the Western waters. Having made some progress in the elementary principles of an education, and procured some means, he entered Woodward College, in Cincinnati, where he graduated with high honor.
