A Fatal Blow - On David D. Pierson’s ranch, about seven miles northwest of this city, a difficulty took place between Thomas Newton and George Badman which resulted in the death of the latter. Thos Newton and George Badman were employed on the ranch as laborers, and were under the direction of Oliver Campbell, foreman of the ranch. Mr. Campbell had given the men orders to get out to work earlier in the morning as the weather was getting better, and more work should be done. On Saturday morning Newton had gotten out to work earlier than Badman. Mr. Campbell, foreman, suggested to Badman that he must get out to work earlier, and rode off about his business. Newton was hauling feed to stock and Badman was getting ready to haul lumber. Badman, who was not much in favor of getting out earlier, cursed Newton for getting out earlier, and told him that his actions caused all the hands to get out earlier. Over this matter the quarrel began and resulted in Newton getting a pitchfork to defend himself and it struck Badman twice, once in the left arm and once on the left side of the head near the top. Newton claims that Badman was approaching him a knife when he struck him. Badman started for home on horseback after he was struck but he was unable to ride and get down he was found and hauled home where he lingered until Tuesday afternoon, when he died. Newton did not flee, but awaited the arrival of Sheriff Robinson and went to jail to await his preliminary. Badman was 27 years of age, and leaves a wife and three children. Newton is a quite industrious mad and has a wife and four children. The affair is an unfortunate one for both parties. [Carrollton Gazette Mar 1895]

Died - At his residence in Whitehall, Greene County, ILL., Feb. 16th, 1865. Benjamin Baldwin, in the 74th year of his age.
The deceased was born in the State of Virginia, March 26th, 1791: emigrated to Ohio, A. D. 1811, served two campaigns in the war with England in 1812 and 1813; was elected and served two terms in Ohio legislature and for a number of years held the position of Genl. of Militia. In the year 1850 he emigrated to Illinois and settled in Apple Creek Prairie in Greene County, where he and several sons became extensively engaged in farming, he represented Greene County one term in the legislature. A few months before his death he built a residence and moved into White Hall. Possessing a strong constitution he retained his faculties to the last.
Judge Baldwin was emphatically a representative man of that class who follow the pioneer and develop the resources of a country, regulate its social and domestic affairs and thus give vitality to all its industrial pursuits. He was a self-made man, and by rare energy, industry and economy, succeeded in placing each of his numerous family in easy and comfortable circumstances; thus becoming to others an example of what may be accomplished in a land like this where liberal and democratic principles prevail; in the maintenance of which principles he evinced a lively interest and looked with anxious solitude into the future destiny of the country. But he has yielded to the inexorable law and leaves to generations following the solution of the problem.
The partner of his youth, manhood, and age still survives. [Carrollton Gazette 25 Mar 1865]
