Caroline, I keep looking at that name, BARRUM. Could Kali Barrum
actually have been Calista "Cali" BARNUM? There was a Calista BARNUM,
born about 1777 in Bennington, Vermont, married to Amos Thompson. A
child born in 1824 would have been among the last children of a woman
born in 1777, but it is entirely within the range of possibilities. If
the birth dates are correct (and her birth year is only an estimate)
Calista would have been about 47 years old. In my family records I have
noticed that many women still did have children at that age, though it
is, admittedly, close to the end of their child bearing years.
