A One-Name Study
for the BARNUM/BARNHAM Surname
Notes for Alice Lee WADDILL
The following message was received from Elizabeth Olivárez on March 10, 2004. "I was interested in your site, because one of my very best friends, Alice (Waddill) Barnum, died Monday March 8, 2004 in Denver, Colorado. She was 94. I know that she had one son, with whom I am in contact. He is named K. Dorsey Barnum and Alice was married to a physician. I do not know his name and so thought that perhaps it was Kenneth Raymond Barnum. Alice will be cremated in Colorado and buried in Sedalia, Missouri. She was sweet, classy, very bright, and humble, did not even want a service to honor her memory. But in our hearts, she is big. She was my teacher's aid when I taught Headstart classes in the 60s but in reality I learned more from her."
