Biography of George P. Daum
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Daum, George Peter, whose excellent farms comprising an aggregate of 175 acres in the eastern part of Barre, are among the best in the county. was a native of Germany, born March 9, 1828. His parents were Henry and Mary Daum, and of their five children, George Peter was the youngest but one. While George was a youth his parents died, upon which, in 1849, he came to this country and proceeded to the Genesee region in search of an acquaintance for whom he had a letter. This quest brought him in this vicinity, but for some years he had no fixed residence, and his time was employed in working as a tailor, that being his trade, and at such other work as he could find to do. Six years of work brought him $600, money saved, and with it he bought seventy acres in Barre and came to live in the town in 1862, though he had previously lived in Gaines where he also worked at farming. In 1854 Mr. Daum married Rosa Bender, a native of Badew, but then living in Murray. His life as a farmer has been abundantly successful, and as a result of hard and earnest work he is now possessed of a competency. The children of George P. and Rose (Bender) Daum. are as follows: Frank, a farmer in Barre; Caroline, wife of Edward Bender; Frederick of Rich's Corners; Henry, of Albion; Emma, wife of William Tripp, of Albion; Daniel ann Rose, both at home; Kate, wife of Henry Bender, and Elizabeth, George, and Arthur, who are at home with their parents.
