Living next door, in Household #752; Family #771 was Barnum, Betsey; 65; F; N York [Henry's mother]

In household #753; Family #772 lived Seth P. Fester, 21, who may have been a relative, since Henry's mother's maiden name appears as Ferster.

The 1850 census shows at least eight other Barnum family groups, as well as the families of several in-laws, located in the same town.
