A One-Name Study for the BARNUM/BARNHAM Surname

Notes for Fanny BARNUM

One Source spells her given name "Fanna". According to the Pioneer History of Clarksfield (Ohio), Esther Wildman Husted died in 1842 at the age of 63 and Samuel Husted afterward married the widow of his brother, Platt, of Cincinnati. She was Fanny Barnum, a sister of E.M. and Levi Barnum. Her daughter in New York was a fine musician. She used to visit her mother frequently and sent a piano out to her, which was probably the first one in the township. Her playing and singing on summer evenings when she was visiting her mother used to attract many hearers who gathered around The Husted home at the Hollow. Mrs. Husted went east to visit her daughter and while there was taken sick and died. Mr. Husted died not long afterward in 1863 at the age of 84.
