Charity Hallet Barnum
"Of all the young people with whom I associated in our parties, picnics, and sleigh-rides, she stood highest in my estimation and continued to improve upon acquaintance." Charity would remain Barnum's love and stronghold through the course of their marriage. They had four daughters together, with three surviving to adulthood. (number unknown)
