A birth year of about 1842 would be estimated from the 1850 Census of Hunterdon County, New Jersey (roll 453, p. 93). She was listed as eight years old. Mary Jo C. Martin in Melbourne, Australia at MartinSM@Ocean.com.au has some info on this family.

This comes from a New Jersey newspaper:

January 5, 1886, Forty-Eighth Volume, No. 21

On the morning of the 3rd inst., Miss Lizzie Baldwin, daughter of Mr. Stewart C. Baldwin, of Trenton, (formerly a resident of this county,) while suffering from mental derangement occasioned by over study before her recent graduation from one of the Trenton schools, eluded the vigilance of her parents and escaped from the house, and running to the water power, nearly a mile distant, threw herself into the water. Her body was recovered next day... She was engaged to be married to Mr. Jacob Parse, of Flemington, and when her body was found in the water the engagement ring was still upon her finger. Her mother was a Miss Susan Bodine, sister to Mr. J. P. Bodine, of this place.
