      JOHN G. and JOEL L. HUME,
      farmers and stock raisers. The HUME brothers, who are extensively engaged in
      farming and stock raising in this county, are sons of Joel HUME, now deceased,
      for many years one of the leading farmers and stock raisers of the county, and as
      universally and highly respected as any man in it. Joel HUME's father, Reuben, a
      descendant of the HUME's of England, was originally of Virginia, but became one
      of the first settlers in Madison county, Kentucky, where he afterwards died,
      leaving his wife, formerly Miss Annie FINKS, aunt of Captain FINKS, of this
      county, and a family of seven sons. These, including the father of John G. and
      Joel L., subsequently came to Missouri, and all became wealthy and leading
      farmers of this section of the state. Joel, who was born before his parents left
      Virginia, married in Madison county, Kentucky, Miss Polly Ann, daughter of
      Yelverton PEYTON, an old Virginian and a soldier of the revolution, becoming his
      wife. After the birth of eight children, the family immigrated to Howard county
      and settled in Chariton township. He was a man of great energy and industry, and
      he and his sons went to work with resolution that never fails to bring success.
      He soon made one of the finest farms in the county, and when he died, about the
      close of the late war, had an estate of over 2,000 acres of fine land, most of it
      improved, besides a large quantity of stock and other personal property. But it
      was not on account of his success alone, or mainly, that he was so universally
      and highly respected. It was because he was possessed of the true qualities of
      manhood to more than an ordinary degree that all who knew him admired and
      esteemed him. Frank, honorable, generous, brave-hearted, and true in every
      relation of life, he was a pillar of integrity, a steadfast friend, a useful
      citizen, and a noble, Christian man. Such was the father of John G. and Joel
      HUME; and these the sons are not unworthy of their name. Both are enterprising,
      upright, progressive citizens and intelligent farmers. John G. was born in
      Madison county, Kentucky, January 1, 1831, and Joel L. in the same county
      September 7, 1839. Both were brought up on their father's farm, where they still
      live, and which they now own, a place of about 1,000 acres, finely improved.
      Besides the usual farm interests, they give special attention to stock raising,
      in which they have had marked success. Both were in the Confederate army, and
      were fearless, faithful soldiers. Joel L. was married the 17th of April, 1872, to
      Miss Louisa LEE, of this county, but she was taken from him by death in 1881,
      leaving him three children ? Eva L., Sarah F. and John O. Both brothers are
      members of the Christian church.
