Ester p. Rayfield who married John Baldwin was the daughter of Franklin M. Raffield and his wife, Sarah Davis, daughter of Philip Davis. Franklin was the son of John and Elizabeth Rafield. John Washington Baldwin then remarried and had a bunch of kids and if I remember correctly, his second wife was a relative of Ester's. Franklin Raffield died in Gaston County in 1887 from cancer of the face, the result of powder burns during the Civil War. I am writing a book on the rayfield family.

I am a descendant of Ester Rayfield and John Baldwin. Their daughter, Alice Lula Elizabeth was the mother of my maternal grandfather William Webb Hastings. I am just getting started with my family genealogy but will share anything I find with you. I plan on visiting my maternal grandmother(who is still living) to gather information within the next two weeks. I also had planned on visiting the cemetary you mentioned to look for other relatives. I'll let you know what I find!
