Sophia Olive Cotnam 1882 North Dakota

I am trying to find information on my grandfather's mother, Sophia Olive Cotnam (married name Baldwin) who died when my grandfather was 2 1/2 years old. Below is the information I have:
Sophia Olive Cotnam (born about Sept. 1858). Her husband was Henry Baldwin from Mitcheldeon, Gloucshire, England. Henry Baldwin was born on 1/25/1857 and died 9/27/1920 in Andulusia, Alabama. Sophia Cotnam had a millinery shop in Pembina, North Dakata. She died 2/8/1885 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her son, Herbert Thomas Baldwin, was born July 10, 1882 in Pembina, North Dakota and died 3/19/1955 in Longview, Washington. Sophia had a sister named Mary. I was interested in the postings because we do know that three Cotnam brothers did come to North America, with two settling in Canada and one in the south. Also, my aunt has mentioned the town of Merrickville, Ontario. I have two aunts that have done a lot of geneology work but they have not been able to find much on Sophia Cotnam. Any help you could give would be most appreciated!
