A One-Name Study for the BARNUM/BARNHAM Surname

Notes for David Nash BARNUM

Barnum, David N. Died 10-19-1857, Age 58 y. Burial: Until the Day Dawn Cemetery, Angelica, Allegany County, New York, USA. Plot: 415.

The area was first settled around 1802 at Angelica Village. The Town of Angelica was formed in 1805 from the Town of Leicester in Livingston County, New York, before Allegany County was formed. The town was originally not intended to be named Angelica, and it is suggested that Angelica Church, a sister-in'law of Alexander Hamilton, carried on affairs with numerous influential people in the area to ensure its naming. It's also said that Hamilton himself had a hand in the naming.
