My ResearchNote*There may be a William J. Baldwin in Dale County along with a William I. Baldwin. Census records show W. J. Baldwin, military records show William J, tombstone shows William I. It seems clear that Christopher Baldwin's son is William J. Baldwin. 
Name VariationWilliam I. Baldwin; Tombstone inscriptions for William and his wife Martha J. are clear that his middle initial is I.

(Resident) Census1850Elizabeth (?), GA Stewart Co Census 1850; Mockinson Gap District, Fam#341, Stewart County, Georgia, USA; "Elizabeth Baldwin", head, age 40, born in Georgia;
"John Baldwin", age 21, farmer; "William Baldwin", age 17, farmer;
"J.E. Baldwin", age 11; "Benjamin Baldwin", age 5 [why ages out of sequence];
"B.C. Baldwin", age 9 [note-confirm this age from a source other than census];
"M. S. Baldwin", age 2.

[Bryant F. Baldwin #40, age 5 at the time of this census, does not appear with the family. Sarah Baldwin #59, age 15, appears with a nearby family, Ira Hobbs age 50 of North Carolina, and Catharine Hobbs age 50 of Georgia. I have Sarah as a daughter of Elizabeth. Harrison Baldwin age 10 appears in the household of George Osbon (age 80) and Martha Osbon (age 52) and other Osbons ages 24-14. Is it possible that some of Elizabeth's children were placed with relatives or friends after Christopher's death in early 1950? ]10 
Residence*1852Dale County, Alabama, USA; moved from Stewart County, Georgia11 
(Witness) Residenceafter 1853Elizabeth (?); Dale County, Alabama, USA; Elizabeth, widowed by the death of Christopher in 1850, moved from Stewart County, Georgia, to Dale County, Alabama, along with her minor children and her two oldest sons and their families. According to the reference, all the Baldwins in Dale County came from Stewart County, GA.2 
Marriage*5 October 1853Martha J. Gilmore; Stewart County, Georgia, USA; Brothers William J. and John Christopher each married Gilmore women within a week of each other. Need to check if the Gilmore women were sisters.1,12

(Neighbor) CommentJune 1860Elizabeth (?), James Preston; Dale County, Alabama, USA; Living close together in the 1860 census were families of Elizabeth Baldwin, widowed, her son W. J. Baldwin, son John C. Baldwin, James and Elizabeth Preston, their daughter Nancy Mathews, widowed, and children, and James M. Mathews. Not far away was the Wiley Balkcom family. Elizabeth Baldwin's son Bryant later married adjacent Nancy Mathews' daughter Josephine.14 
Census*19 July 1860AL Dale Co Census 1860; Newton Post Office, pg 556, hh 410, Dale County, Georgia, USA; "W. J.

His real estate was valued at $1000, personal property at $500. His brother Barnabas C Baldwin lived with them.

Military15 March 1862CSA, 37th Alabama Infantry Regiment, Co A, Alabama, USA; the Alabama Archives database, and the NARA Confederate Soldiers Index, have a William J Balkcom listed in two units. For now I am saying they are two different people. The William J. Baldwin in the 37th Regiment is listed as age 29 at enlistment, in 1862, a couple of years too old to be the William J. Baldwin, son of Christopher Baldwin.

Confederate Soldiers Index has a William J. Baldwin in
"William J. Baldwin, Co A 37th Alabama Infantry, Private";
"William J. Baldwin, Co E Alabama Infantry, Private (Orig under W. J. Baldwin")

The 37th Infantry site has this:

The households of John W. Balkcom (son of James and Mary) and wife Nancy age 19 (newly married) and Daniel Murphy (with wife Elizabeth and a 12 year old male Milton Murphy) were adjacent. Neither of the other families showed land holdings so it's likely that they had houses on the land of James Balkcom.

Also listed on the same census page were Lewis Deal and wife Nancy J. Brannon Deal, with family. Nancy J. Brannon (person ID#1314) was the oldest daughter of Rosier Brannon and Anzilla Galloway, and sister to Rose Ann Brannon who was daughter-in-law to James and Mary Balkcom.

Census*18 June 1880AL Henry Co Census 1880; hh#64, ED#82, Beat 6, pg 31, stamped pg 611, Henry County, Alabama, USA; household:

"Joseph Balkum", age 7 born in AL, parents born in GA;
"Archie Balkum", age 5, born in AL, parents born in GA.
Note absence of son Tarrell.

Note SC birthplace of Albert's parents. If accurate then James and Mary Balkcom are not his parents. On the other hand I've not run across SC Balkcoms so this may be an error. Albert's age 28 is too young by a year or two to match the Albert in the earlier census, in household of James and Mary. Children birthplaces listed as GA, possibly indicating that Sarah went to parents' home for the births.5

He is the progenitor of the Balkcoms in Georgia." Note that many of the Balkcoms in southeast Alabama descend from James E. Balkcom of North Carolina, relationship to the Ichabod line and to the Alexander Balkcom lines unknown. However, Alexander did have a number of descendants in that part of the state.13
