Biography

Richard Barnum, born April 15, 1675 Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut Colony[1] [2], was the sixth child (third son) of Thomas Barnum, Sr. He was the fourth deacon of the church at Danbury and represented that town as a member of the Colonial Legislature. His will, dated January 14, 1739, mentions five sons and a grandson (the son of his son Joseph, deceased).

The Barnum Family gives his birth year erroneously as 1687.
