Who were the "real" Baldwin Sisters that Earl Hamner based his characters on? I've never heard names, stories, etc. I didn't know if they really existed, or if they were added to the television show for some flavor.
I think I remember reading that they did exist, although they were actually mother and daughter, and their name wasn't Baldwin. They lived in Scottsville, VA, which isn't far from Nelson County (where Earl grew up), but it's farther than depicted in the show. And I think they did make their own moonshine !

I posted once before in August..2006 when the last member of the family died at 101 . She lived with her sister in Dallas(they were born in Murfreesboro, Arkansas) and they were very much like The Baldwin Sisters.
