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.

"J.A. HUMES was born in Muskingum County, Ohio, March 13, 1840, and is one of a family of fifteen children born to JOHN and MARGARET (FRAZIER) HUMES.
