Today in Family History - 22 Mar

My 3rd great-grandfather Benjamin Franklin Baldwin, Sr. died on this day in 1869 in Walker County, Texas [1, 2]. He was buried at McAdams Cemetery in Walker County [1]. 

Coincidentally, Franklin's grandson, my great-grandfather, Spencer Clarke Baldwin, Sr. also died on this day in 1967 at Bayshore Hospital in Pasadena, Harris, Texas [2, 3, 4]. He was buried on 25 Mar 1967 at McAdams Cemetery in Walker County, Texas [3, 4]. The circumstances of his death lead to possibilities of medical malpractice [5].
