Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired medical secretary with a long time love of genealogy. I have been working on my family - off & on - for over 50 yrs. I am married, have one son and two fantastic grandchildren, who are the love of my life.

I truly enjoy searching for my ancestors, but I do wish that I could fill in some of my "blanks" where I have run into a brick wall. Maybe, one of these days. I also wish that I had asked more questions of some of my relatives while they were still alive. So many questions unasked.

Please feel free to use any photos that I have submitted.

Good luck to all and good hunting.

RE: William or John Hume
Thank you for your response.It's really getting more confusing. I'll let you know if I get it sorted, properly. I just downloaded another book by John Frank Hume.

William or John Hume
Hi Doris! I bought the book A Colonial Scottish Jacobite Family. Written by Edgar Erskine Hume. On page 134, it list the following:
William Hume married Susan Elzaphan.
Children are Alexander and John
William married (Susan?) Grandville
Children George, Jarred,Elzaphan, Elizebeth and Patrick
William married Sara baker(nee Benson)
Children Joel Benson (more children followed)

I'm only giving you this info for your research.I'm not trying to change anything.
Elzaphan is my 4th greatgrandfather. So, I guess that makes us related. My line from George and Elizabeth is William (1734-1809)
By the way, Ancestry has Elzaphan as the son of John and William both,on the profiles.
Hope to hear back from you soon,
Jane Collins

I have requested a headstone photo many times. Each time, I'm told it can't be processed because there is an existing photo request and only one is allowed at a time.Please help me with this!!

Tank you
