Daniel Baum was the eighth of twelve known children of Daniel Baum (1780-1857) and Asenath (Ascenith on her gravemarker) Meyers Rothrock Baum (1781-1870), who married 20 Feb 1801 at Mifflin County, Pennsylvania.
Daniel first married to Rebecca Vandeventer (1812-1865) on 07 Apr 1836 at Carroll County, Indiana. Daniel and Rebecca were the parents of one known child, namely:
1. Mary Ann Baum Smith (1837-1884)
After Rebecca died, Daniel remarried to the widow, Mrs. Mary Bassett Mason (1823-1908) on 29 Mar 1866 in presumably Indiana. It is not believed that Daniel and Mary had any children together. After Daniel died, Mary remarried to Daniel's cousin, Abraham Hanawalt in 1894.
Links to Daniel's parents, both of his wives and his only known child are included below.

We came down the Sciota river to the Ohio and then down that river to the Wabash, up which we came to Deer creek and then up Deer creek to where a railroad bridge now crosses it, reaching that point April 30th, 1825. There were then only three or four families living in Carroll county. We had almost daily visits from the Pottawattomie Indians. The land on the west side of the Wabash all belonged to the Indians at that time.
