Notes for Grove L. BARNUM

The Barnum Family, 1517-1904 erroneously shows him as a son of his grandfather.
From the Wyoming County Times, Warsaw, N.Y. March 23, 1911: Grove Barnum, Sr. who died in Cowlesville March 4, 1911, was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Pliny Barnum. He was born in Alden, July 1847. When quite young he moved with his parents to a farm near Cowlesville where they made a successful business of hop raising. Mr. Barnum was married in 1870 (sic, 1871) to Miss Maria Fullerton (sic, Fulton) of Alexander. Of this marriage three children survive, Pliny of Chicago, Charles of Atlanta, Ga. and Mrs. Mary Marshall of Syracuse.
In 1885, he was married to Miss Kate Goldberg of Sardinia and five children of this union are living Grove Jr., of Buffalo, Mrs. Florence Ehrenberg of East Aurora, Warren, Niles and Arthur of Cowlesville. There is also one brother, Oscar P. of California. Mr. Barnum was leader of the celebrated Barnum Orchestra up to the time of his death; had served as supervisor of Bennington for several terms and was milk inspector for some years. The K.O.T.M. (Knights of the Maccabees, a historic fraternal association in Canada and the United States) of which he was a member conducted the funeral services, Rev. N J. E. Neal officiating. Interment was in Cowlesville Cemetery.
He was buried in the Cowlesville Village Cemetery, located north of Cowlesville on Lapp Road in the Town of Bennington.
