Note 1

Aunt Nett Woodruff Baldwin at age 47 married WJ Bayne, age 55 in November 1897. Second marriage for both.

Note in Emma Flynt Bowie Family Record book in Lola's hand writing "Aunt Nett Woodruff Baldwin Bayne died Dec 4, 1925, widow of Dr. D. W. Bayne." in Emma's hand "Grandpa Baldwin Aunt - his father's sister.” 2019- looks like Nett was sister of his mother, and also his uncle’s wife..

Several Baynes are in Lonoke City Cemetery including WD and Emily probably parents of WJ.

Jenetta is titled Mrs Baldwin in the marriage record.
