Notes for Joseph Eugene Raymond BARNUM

During his life he managed ranches in the San Joaquin Valley of California (Tulare County) and in the area of Prescott, Arizona. A range fire in 1899 destroyed what was called 'the big ranch' in the San Joaquin valley; both the home and the adjacent forest. It was a working cattle ranch managed by Joseph, who also managed the 'little ranch' in the Maricopa/Phoenix, Arizona area. The latter was where his son moved after the fire.
