I've "rescued" three old photographs which belong to the HAYNES and HUME
Families. The first is a photograph of Estella Barbara HAYNES which is
dated 1907. In addition to her name someone has written "Mother MAIDEN" and
"E.J.'s Mother" on the back of the photograph. She appears to be in her
20's at the time. The second and third photographs are copies of an earlier
photograph of Wilber Isaac HUME and Estella Barbara HAYNES, likely taken in
the 1890's and then copied later. Information on the back of the photograph
states that Wilber was b. 30 Jan 1863, married Estella 29 Mar 1893, and died
of Typhoid Fever 26 Oct 1895. Also noted is the birth of their son, Edwin
James HUME on 17 Aug 1895 in Garwin, IA.
Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information
regarding this family:
Wilbur or Wilber Isaac Hume was born 30 Jan 1861 in Hubbard, OH to parents
Edwin Edward W. HUME (b. 1833) and Amanda Annon NELSON (1833-1880). Wilber
was one of 8 children born to this couple including, Wilber Isaac; Mary
Olivia; Charles Nelson; Frank; Anna Viola; Ella Mary; and Delmar James; and
Frank Alfred HUME, all born between 1861 and 1876. The family surname may
have later been changed to HUMES by some. Wilber married Estella Barbara
HAYNES on 29 Mar 1893 in Tama Co. IA. The couple had only one child, Edwin
James HUME b. 17 Aug 1895 in Garwin, IA. Wilbur died 26 Oct 1895 and is
buried in the Dobson Cemetery in Garwin, IA.
Their son Edwin James HUME b. 17 Aug 1885 in Garwin, IA married Myrtle Marie
KEHR (b. 20 Mar 1900) on 1 June 1919. Edwin was living in Vulcan, Alberta,
Canada in 1917 but traveled to Carlton, IA when he was registered for the
WWI draft, listing his occupation as Farmer. He was in Seattle, WA by the
time he registered for the draft in 1942.
Estella Barbara HAYNES HUME MAIDEN was b. 28 Apr 1871 in Carlton, IA to
parents James Marion HAYNES (b. 23 Feb 1849 in Tama, IA-d. 1919 in Carlton,
IA) and Shady Ann STRONG (b. 29 Jan 1852 in West Mansfield, OH-d. 8 Jun 1873
in Tama Co. IA giving birth to her second daughter). Estella had one
sibling, a sister Shady Ann HAYNES b. 8 Jun 1873. After her Mother's death
in 1873 her father married Melissa May KIRKMAN or KERKMAN (1858-1931) and
they had 10 more children including, Ella Mae; Warren Silves; Mary Nellie
"Nell"; Della J.; John Oscar; Ada A.; Louis A.; Orley; Rolla "Rollie"
Russell; Elpha or Helfu W. HAYNES, all born between 1875 and 1893.
Estella died 27 Feb 1847 or 1848 in Vulcan, Alberta, Canada and is buried in
the Vulcan Cemetery there.
After Wilber's death Estella married Francis Marion or Marion Francis MAIDEN
(b. 21 Sept 1867 in Tama Co. IA son of Joseph MAIDEN and Maria GRANT) on 30
Nov 1898 in Rockton, IA and together they had 3 children, Edwin Hugh; Fern
Lucille, and Chester Leroy MAIDEN born in Marshall Co. or Tama Co. IA
between 1895 and 1904.
