THE BAUM FAMILY. The immigrant ancestor of this family was George Baum, Sr., who was born in Germany, Nov. 17, 1754, and who, when seventeen years of age, sailed for America with a brother. The latter died on ship-board and was buried at sea. The ship must have met with tempestuous weather, or have been a very slow sailor, as it is recorded that the voyage lasted six months. He landed at Philadelphia in the year 1772, when public affairs were in more or less of a ferment owing to the troubles with England which were in a few years to bring on the Revolutionary war. In accordance with a not unfrequent custom in those days, his services had been sold to a man for three years to pay his passage. In 1783 he was married to Mary Higgin, a native of Pennsylvania. In 1801 he moved to Ohio, settling in Columbiana County, where he purchased 160 acres of land of the government, at $1.25 per acre, which land is now the site of the city of Salem. The nearest grist-mill was then at Marietta, about sixty-five miles away, the route being through the woods, and it used to take him from three to four days to make the trip, leading his horse, which carried the grist. On each occasion he was obliged to camp at least two nights in the woods.

THOMAS BAUM, son of George and Mary Baum (and maternal grandfather of William J. Powell, of Northfield Township, Summit County, Ohio), was born in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, June 20, 1798. In 1801 he accompanied his parents to Salem, Columbiana Co., Ohio. Here he subsequently married Mary Perkey. In 1821 he became a resident of Northfield Township, Summit County, where he purchased a farm for three dollars per acre. This farm was located about eighteen miles from Cleveland, and is now known as the G. T. Bishop farm. Here his death occurred, Dec. 24, 1862. His wife had preceded him to the grave, dying on her fifty-eighth birthday, June 28, 1855. They reared a family of six children – John, Sarah, Mary, Martha, Elizabeth, and James M. The record of these children is, in brief, as follows:

John enlisted in the 111th Regiment Ohio, Volunteer Infantry, in Williams County, Ohio, and served nearly three years. He died in that county Nov. 16, 1865. Sarah became the wife of William Powell, of Northfield Township, wher she now resides. Mary married a Mr. White, of Jennings Co., Indiana. Martha, who is the widow of Mr. Horner, resides in Akron, Ohio. Elizabeth is the wife of David Silver, of Jennings County, Indiana.2
