Black Dome Valley is an area of Greene County, NY about a half mile from Hensonville, NY.

The Recorder, Catskill, Greene County, New York, February 16, 1923: Jabez W. Barnum of Black Dome Valley was killed on Monday (February 12) in the fall of a tree which he was chopping in pine woods about a quarter mile from his own home. The funeral was held on Thursday in the Presbyterian Church, Maplecrest with interment in the cemetery there. Mr. Barnum was born in 1862 in Jewett in a family of highly respected old settlers. For the last forty years he had been a resident of Black Dome Valley and about thirty five years ago was married to Elizabeth Bray who survives him. He was a successful farmer and conducted a popular boarding house as well as holding the office of assessor at the time of his sad death. He was a trustee of the local Methodist Church and superintendent of the Sunday School, a truly religious, kindly and open-handed man, so hospitable that his home had long been by common consent the gathering for neighboring events. Intensely musical, he and his sons formed a family orchestra. Mr. Barnum is survived by not only his wife but four sons: Walter, William, Ralph and Olin and by two daughters, Mrs. Otis Planck and Miss Julia all of Black Dome Valley or its immediate vicinity.
