  • Notes 
    • Pg 92 History of the Hume Family
      Both Francis and Reubin are members of the Christian Church

      R. Y. HUME,
      farmer and stock dealer. Mr. HUME is a son of Joel HUME and brother to John G.
      and Joel L., whose sketch precedes this, and, in keeping with the character and
      reputation of his family, is one of the leading farmers of the county. He was
      born in Madison county, Kentucky, October 3, 1826, and was therefore eighteen
      years of age when his father settled in Howard county, in 1844 ? old enough to be
      a principal hand in clearing the forest and making the home that sheltered his
      parents and comforted them so many years. And he was not an unwilling hand in
      this work, for, reared by an industrious father, the bread of whose toil had
      given him the vigor and strength of youth and early manhood, and appreciating the
      fact that only in honest exertion is there an honest livelihood, he labored with
      a generous spirit to repay the debt that every child owes the dutiful parent ?
      the debt of gratitude ? and to prepare himself for the active duties of life. As
      the years of his youth filed by, bringing him nearer and nearer to the age that
      he would have to rely on his own qualifications in business affairs, he improved
      every opportunity that presented ? and they were none too frequent or favorable ?
      to acquire an education; and in the country schools, the log cabin, puncheon-
      floor school of early days, and by private study, he obtained a sufficient
      knowledge of the "Two R's and A. G.," reading, writing, arithmetic and grammar,
      to answer all practical purposes. When the time came that he should have a roof
      of his own, he shoulder his ax and went to the woods for the second time in life
      to open a farm, and, tree by tree, and acre by acre the timber felled and cleared
      away, until now his place covers nearly a mile square, numbering 500 acres, all
      fine land and exceptionally well improved. Such is the reward of industry and
      honest, intelligent purpose; such the effect of good bringing up. Mr. HUME, life
      his brother, makes a specialty of stock raising and dealing in cattle, and the
      fact that he is a HUME, a son of his father, speaks enough for the success he
      achieves. He, too, was a gallant soldier of the bright-barred but ill-starred
      banner of the south, that flashed through the heavens like a glorious meteor, and
      was gone forever. On the 26th of November, 1846, he was married to Miss Frances
      PEYTON, of that honorable old Virginia family whose name is written in every
      chapter of the Old Dominion's history, and which has sent out brave pioneers
      wherever forests were to be cleared and comfortable, happy homes to be made. She
      came of the Kentucky branch of the family, and was born in Madison county of that
      state November 3, 1830. Her grandfather was one of the first settlers in her
      native county, and there her father, Yelverton PEYTON, was born December 17,
      1793, and died in Randolph county, Missouri, April 10, 1858. He was a soldier in
      the war of 1812, and his widow, formerly, and over seventy-one years formerly at
      that, was a Miss Mildred WHITE, of Kentucky. She is now living with another
      daughter of hers, Mrs. MASON, in Randolph county, Missouri, at the advanced age
      of eighty-eight; is sound in mind and body, and as chirp in manners and
      conversation as ladies ordinarily are at fifty. She has been a member of the
      Baptist church since 1800, and now draws a pension of $72 a year on account of
      her husband's service in the war of 1812. Mr. and Mrs. HUME have a family of five
      interesting children; Joel Y., John O., Henry D., Minnie and Reuben. The parents
      are both members of the Christian church.
