A One-Name Study for the BARNUM/BARNHAM Surname

Notes for Jerome Philemon BARNUM

He enlisted, August 1862, in Company "F", 2nd Vermont Sharpshooters. Jerome P. Barnum, Private, Monkton, VT, is listed as a member of Company "F", 1st US Sharpshooters. That unit was organized in September, 1861, with Edmund Weston Jr., of Randolph as captain and C. W. Seaton and M. V. Bronson as lieutenants. It joined the regiment at New York and went with it to Washington, where the men were mustered into the service of the United States. Before any man could be accepted, he must shoot his target -- that is, he must put ten successive bullets into a five inch ring one hundred yards distant. The company left Vermont with one hundred and thirteen enlisted men, but upon Muster-In thirteen were rejected, to reduce the number to the regulation limit of one hundred men.
without issue.
