According to the Barnum genealogy by Eben Barnum and Rev. Francis
Barnum, S.J. (1912), p. 43, David Barnum (b. 1768) (/David, David,
Francis, Thomas)/, md. Rachel Hoyt on Feb. 3, 1793 and had sons Ebenezer
(b. 1795), Sylvester (b. 1803), David (b. 1804), and John (b. 1806).
Very little additional information was included in the genealogy for
Fran Johnson's wonderful book of Kent families adds addiutional details,
e.g, that David was born in Danbury, and indicates that this David
Barnum family (enumerated in 1800 in Kent) moved to New York state in 1811.
Can anyone tell me where he resided in NY, and when he died? Did he
leave a will or have a probatable estate? Any deeds?
The Barnum genealogy indicates that this David Barnum was the son of
David Barnum (1743-1795) but does not name the latter's wife or identify
where he lived or died. Does anyone have that information that they
could share with me?
Jacobus /FFOF /1:33 shows Francis Barnum, son of Thomas, married to
Deborah Hoyt in 1712, with six sons, one of whom was David Barnum.
Was this David Barnum he who married Charity Lake 2 March 1747 in Kent,
Litchfield County, per Johnson's /A Register of Some of the Families
that have lived in Kent, CT., 1739-1999/?
Where did David Barnum die, and when? I've not been able to find a CT
probate record for him.
