Re: Barnum - Marriage lookup - please help

In Reply to: Barnum - Marriage lookup - please help by Connie Schuler of 184

I looked in the marriage records and I found Jay Barnum's wife.

Then I found the marriage info for 3 of the kids.
One of the kids was born in 1906.

But you said he was a widower by 1900.

Then I looked at the census records.

Jay Barnum was not a widower in 1900.
I donít know why his wife was not living with him in the 1900 census.

If you compare the 1900 and the 1910 you can see that the wife is back in 1910.

The difference in the spelling of Vanz and Vany is because of bad handwriting in the county clerk record books.

I hope this information will be helpful to your research
