A One-Name Study for the BARNUM/BARNHAM Surname

Notes for Eda Turner BARNUM

While Eda and her sister Eva were girls, P.T. Barnum brought his circus to Hannibal, and they were presented to him. He called them his cousins and gave them each a silver cross. The crosses are now in the possession of Bruce Weir, in Kanata, Canada.
