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.

Anna FINKS [Parents] was born in 1777. She died on 25 Dec 1812. Anna married Reuben HUME on 22 Feb 1796.

Date of marriage here is date of marriage bond. Bondsman was Elias Finks son of Mark Finks Jr., and Elizabeth Fisher. A letter from Mark Finks requested that the license be issued.

Mark Finks, Sr., died in 1764 and thus could not possibly have written a letter in 1796. On the other hand, Mark Finks, Jr. was alive and well.

Also, the letter of consent would not have been necessary if "Anney" were of age. Therefore, she must have been born after 1775. Mark Finks, Jr. was having children during that period, and the spacing of his known children (particularly between 1773 and 1779) is not so tight as to preclude adding another one.

Janet Zehr, a descendant of Emma Hume, has visited Susanna and George's

As much friendship as could die
Which when alive could pleasure give

History of the Hume Family

George Hume married Susannah Crigler, who
had by him ten children, the oldest of
whom was Jennie, who married her cousin
William Finks, in 1802. Mr. Finks was
older by some years than his wife, and was
a prosperous merchant in the village of
Madison Court House, Virginia. To this
union were born three children, Early, the
oldest was born in 1803, Louisa 1805, and
a third child born in 1807 died in the
first hours of its existence, as also did
the mother. William Finks started in a
"gig" across the mountains in 1807, to
take his motherless children to their
grandfather's home in Kentucky, he having
moved to that state and settled in Madison
County in 1802, a picture of the house
which he erected in 1803 is given in these
pages. The children remained in Kentucky
until Early was 16, and Louisa 14 years
old, when they again made the long trip
across the mountains to their old home in
Virginia. Early entered College in
Staunton, Virginia.

Hans Wilhelm ARNSBERG 1 was born about 1630 in , , , Germany. He married Margaretha.

I posted the following inquiry to the Germanna net in 3/98:

"AMBERGER is listed in the list of Germanna immigrants, but Arnsberg is not. Is there a possibility that these are derivatives of the same name?" Reply:

"The names Arnsburg and Amberger are probably not variants of each other. While Amberger typically had many variants in the records, none would suggest Arnsberg. Could Arnsburg be a variant of Harnsberger? Harnsberger had many variants, in part because it has Swiss origins. But I do not believe the 'H' is ever dropped." John Blankenbaker
