Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 739, Van Buren Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"JAMES HUMES was born in Ohio County, Virginia, March 17, 1815, and is one of the fourteen children born to WILLIAM and ANNA HUMES, natives of Ireland. The father died in Virginia and his widow in Fulton County, Indiana. JAMES HUMES was married in Ohio County, Virginia, September 20, 1837, to RACHEL WALLACE, who died in September, 1839. May 4, 1841, he married HARRIET BARKER, and in the winter of 1844 came to this county, where, in 1877, he purchased his present farm of 110 acres. His children are seven in number - AMANDA, PRUDENCE J., RUNION C., JOHN R., MARY E., JAMES H. and WILLIAM B."
