The 51st Baum Reunion was held at the Fairfield United Methodist Church Family Life building on Sunday, August 5.  This year’s event brought together 86 family members, ages 6-weeks old and up, who came from all across NC and VA, FL and AZ.  The Baum family traces back to Abraham Baum I, who arrived in Currituck about 1709 from England, having left the Palatinate region of Germany.  Those attending Sunday were descendants of one of Abraham I’s great-grandsons, Thomas Baum, who settled in Hyde County near Fairfield about 1816.
