County of Bradley          }  L Baldwin widow of
Hugh W Baldwin late of Co I 10th Tenn
cavaldry whose number of claim is 282.217 on this the 30th day of October
1882 Personally appeared before me an acting
Justice of the Peace and for the afforesaid
county duly authorized to administer
oaths W H H Baker aged 40 years
a resident of Grief in the County of Bradley
and State of Tennessee whose Post offis
address is Grief Bradly County Tennessee
and Joseph J W Baker aged 44
years a resident of Grief with County
of Bradley and State of Tennessee whose
Post offis is Grief Bradley County Tennessee
well known to me to reputable and
entitled to credit and who being duly
sworn declare in relation to the aforesaid
case as follows W H H Baker states he
was well acquainted with the said
Hugh W Baldwin from the time
said Baldwins came home out of the servis
until the year 1873 at which time he
moved to Rhea County Tennessee

page 15
an in a short time after he came home
he told me he was suffering with
diarrhea and hemorhoids which gave him
a [?] of trouble I was more or less
with him from the time he was discharged
up to the year 1873 from the fact we were
near neighbors and during the years of
1871 and 1872 and part of 1879 he lived
on my farm and worked some with
me at times he complained very
much I think that up to the year
1879 he was not disabled from performing
manual labor upon our avridge more
than one fourth but from the year
1871 up to the year 1873 I think he was
disabled about one third & I further
state taht Deborah L Baldwin widow
of Hugh W Baldwin has never married
since the death of her husband.

Joseph J W Baker States he was
well acquainted with said Hugh
W Baldwin from the time he was
discharged up to the year 1873

page 16
and was with him often and
herd him complaining from the
fact we lived joining farms part of
the time he labored some but was
complaining at times very much
the first few years after his discharge
I don't think he was disabled for
performing manual labor more than
one fourth.  But during the last two
years he remained here I think
probably he was disabled one third.
And I further state that Deborah
L. Baldwin widow of Hugh W Baldwin
has never remarried since the death
her husband.

We further declare that we have no interest
in said case and are not concerned in
its prosecution

In the case of Hugh W
Baldwin.  I will state that I was acquainted
with him before the war, and up till the
war commenced and considered him at
that time a healthy man.  Have known
his family for a long time and
from my knowledge of him and the
family I believe he was a healthy
man.  I however did not see him for
a short time before he inlisted and
consequently can not state his condition
at this time of enlistment.
I have no interest in the clam.
