      STANTON HUME.

      Stanton Hume, a highly esteemed resident and successful agriculturist of St. Ferdinand township, is the owner of a fine farm of one hundred and eighty acres which has been his home continuously for the past seventy-twoyears. His birth occurred on the 13th of February, 1836, on the old family homestead, which was located on lilume's lane, a mile and a half from Florissant. His father, Stanton Hume, Sr., came to St. Louis county, Missouri, from Kentucky with his father, John Hume, in 1818, having previously emigrated to the Blue Grass region from Virginia. In 1822 he was united in marriage to a Miss Breckenridge, who had come to this county from Kentucky with her parents in 1820. His demise occurred on the 18th of February, 1850, when he had attained the age of fifty years, and his remains were interred in the old Coldwater cemetery at the Sinks. Unto him and his wife were born twelve children, as follows: Elizabeth, Talitha, Lewis, James, John, Minerva and Maria, all of whom have passed away; Stanton, of this review; Sarah, who is likewise deceased; Mrs. Julia Henly, who makes her home in Oklahoma City; George, who is a resident of Iantha, Barton county, Missouri; and Mrs. Mary Thomas, deceased.
      Stanton Hume obtained his early education in the old-time subscription schools and in 1854 spent six months as a student at Rev. john N. Gilbreath's Institute. During the period of the Civil war he served in the Confederate army, being connected with Slack's Division, which was under command of Colonel Hill of Carrollton, Missouri. General agricultural pursuits have claimed his attention throughout his entire business career and his life has been that of an intelligent, industrious and prosperous farmer. He is a lover of live stock, especially horses, and is a close observer of plant and animal life. The farm on which he has resided since 1839 comprises one hundred and eighty acres of rich and productive land and is a part of the old Patterson settlement, on the Hall's ferry road, a mile and a half from Musick's ferry and two and a half miles from Cross Keys. Mr. and Mrs. I-Iume occupy a comfortable and attractive two-story frame residence, which is surrounded by a_neatly arranged garden and well tilled fields. There are also barns and outbuildings for the shelter of grain and stock, and the neat and thrifty appearance of the place gives evidence of the supervision of a practical and progressive owner.

      On the 21st of February, 1857, Mr. Hume was joined in wedlock to Miss Virginia Ferguson, by whom he had two children, one of whom died in infancy. The other is Robert Hume, now a resident of Slater, Saline county, Missouri, who married Miss Ann E. Hyatt, a daughter of Judge Joseph L. Hyatt. They have two children: Virginia E., who gave her hand in marriage to Silas Thompson; and Joe H. Hume, an agriculturist by occupation.
      Stanton Hume is a Baptist in religious faith and is an exemplary member of the Coldwater church of that denomination. Travel has afforded him both recreation and pleasure and he has visited many parts of the country, from the eastern and Canadian cities to the Rocky mountains. He has remained within the borders of this county throughout his entire life, covering three-fourths of a century, and has therefore witnessed the greater part of its growth and development as it has emerged from pioneer conditions and taken on all the evidences of a modern Civilization.
