      OCCUPATION: Carpenter, farmer, tavern owner in Williamstown, KY
      Prue B. Jefferson Hume arrived in Brown Co., IL in October of 1828.

      Taken from "History of Schuyler and Brown Counties" Illinois 1686 - 1882 Reprinted in 1970
      From Page 279
      "In the fall of the same year, 1828 we find two new arrivals in the settlement. These were Jefferson Hume and Elisha G. Adams, who came about the same time, in the month of October. Jefferson Hume was a native of Kentucky, and immigrated from that state to Illinois in 1825, stopping near the present site of Springfield. He brought with him to this county a family of ten children, VIA James (deceased), Malinda, the wife of George A Hume residing in Dewitt County, IL; Gabriel T, in Kansas: Milton in Missouri; John residing on Section 33 of this township; William F. living on the same section; Cassie who married Green B Smith, (both deceased); Elizabeth, the wife of Spencer Adams in Texas; Mary the wife of Robert Brown; and Ellen, Deceased.

      Mr Hume settled in the NW corner of Section 33 just east of the railroad at the foot of the bluffs on the place where Dr. A.D. Six now lives. He was a carpenter by trade, although he made farming his primary occupation. He was elected a Justice of Peace in 1830, and held several minor offices. He was several times made Major or Colonel of the militia in early times. In 1839 he went to Texas, where he died about 1842.

      There was a very early settlement made by his nephew, William Hume, about a mile south of where he settled and just within the limits of Pike County in 1826.

      Sarah A. Edwards Section 18 Wife of J.F. Hume Came 1851
      Notes for Prue B (Jefferson) Hume was born in Ky, and died 1842 in Nacogdoches, TX. He married ELLENOR ALERN (ELLEN) ARNOLD July 14, 1799 in Pendleton Co., Ky.

      (Page 298 Versailles Township, IL)

      The first mill built in this settlement was constructed by Jefferson Hume in 1830. It was a horse mill and stood near the present residence of Dr. A.D. Six. Though rude and awkward as it was, it served it's purpose and was largely patronized. The settlers were often compelled to remain several days before their grists could be ground, "the first come the first served" was the maxim, and each had to wait his turn.
