Hoge Family Genealogy Forum
I came accross some info which I believe solves the mystrey of the ancestry of Barbara (Hume) Hoge.
Source: Ancestry,com - Search Ninewells - Biography and History - A Genealogical and Heraldic of Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland pages 449 and 595.
Info:17th century represcutative of the Hume's of Ninewells. To wit: (1) John Hume esq. married and left with a daughter. (2) Catherine his sister married Rev. George Hume (from another line). Geroge was excuted unjustly for high treason on 12/29/1682. (3) Joseph, John's brother, married twice. 1st wife unknown, 2nd wife was Catherine Falconer in which they had three children. David Hume (the celebrated historian) was the last of the three children. His father Joseph died when he was an infant. In other sources on David Hume it stated his father had several children by his first wife, thus could explain the difference in ages between David and our Barbara. Orginally I think we had Barbara's father listed as John, but changed it to James because of information from other researchers. ED
