Both parents active members of the Presbyterian church. Their home bordered on the Erie Canal and he twice rescued his brother from drowning. When he arrived in Chicago, May 10, 1854, he was 19 and possessed but one large copper penny. Ed. Public school and Oneida (N.Y.) Academy; m. abt 1859 Maria Hardman of Louisville, KY (died 1871).

He learned the carpenter's trade in boyhood and came to Chicago in 1854. He held several jobs and finally went to work for Abbott & Kingman the largest makers of sashes and doors. Mr. Abbott was drowned when the Lady Elgin went down in a storm on Lake Michigan. The firm of Lambe & Harvey was formed after the last firm dissolved. The outbreak of the Civil War brought increasing business. His brother Barton enlisted in the War and after fighting many battles was captured and spent 6 months in Andersonville. He died shortly after being released and Turlington went south and brought his body back to Sandwich, Il. for burial. Upon his wife's death he was left to care for 4 small boys. His mill, built in 1865, burned before the Great Fire and he moved to 22nd and Morgan. This planing mill was considered the first really fire-proof building constructed up to that time. Brick and iron were the only materials used and through immense pipes by suction all inflammable collections of sawdust and shavings were carried off and used as fuel. The extent of the business in 1883 reached the enormous figure of one hundred and forty million feet. Across the street were the receiving and distribution docks, occupying the entire frontage of Mason's slip and Troop's canal, with track facilities for loading one hundred cars of lumber daily. In 1877 ten dry-kilns were erected, the first steam dry-kilns ever constructed. These were Mr. Harvey's invention and enabled him to prepare dry lumber for the market in 3 to 5 days time, which previously had required several months. He had lumber mills at Muskegon, Mich. and Marinette, Wisconsin. His own boats brought the lumber to Chicago. He was the first to use a small gauge railroad line to reach the lumber. In 1883, Mr. Harvey organized the T. W. Harvey Lumber Company into which he put a capital of one million dollars. He owned companies that operated some 90 lumberyards in the west. He was a member of the Chicago Relief and Aid Society and helped distributed 10 million dollars sent to Chicago. For six months after the fire he was never in his office, but working for the Society from its headquarters at 13th and Michigan. Great story about the houses built after the fire, page 254.

Moody who conducted services at Camp Douglas among the southern soldiers. Was one of the first to import Aberdeen Angus Cattle from Scotland. Started the town of Harvey, Illinois which was a temperance town. He built the Harvey Steel Car Company Works in 1892, the first steel freight cars adopted by the railroads.

During the Civil War, Charles Hume raised a company of volunteers that became the 78th Regiment, Illinois Volunteers. They fought many battles including Mission Ridge and the relief of General Burnside at Knoxville (History of McDonough County, 1885). He was captured in 1862 and was held as a prisoner until 1863. Captain Charles Hume was discharged with a disability on December 18, 1864. Thomas C. McMillian says of Charles Hume: "Among the early events of public importance in the County (McDonough) is recorded the work of Charles Hume, son of a Scot, who taught the first school in Hire Township; he became County Judge, and was a gallant soldier in the Civil War." When Abraham Lincoln was campaigning against Stephen A. Douglas for the senate, he visited the home of Charles Hume in Blandinburg, Illinois.

David Hume ~ Prisoner sent to MA in 1652.10

Helen Hume ~ Mother John McLaren.11

James B. Hume ~ At the time of the gold rush, Hume and his brother John were living on a farm in Indiana. They were from a family of ten children whose parents had settled in Indiana in 1837. It had been a long and demanding journey from their previous home in New York and life continued to be very difficult. All of the children worked as farm hands. The Hume family had immigrated to this country from East Gordon, Berwickshire, Scotland in 1795. They made the journey on the same ship as the Kedzie family. Robert Hume, the grand father, had lived be one hundred years old. The two brothers, James and John, joined the thousand who made the journey to California, but the hoped for riches eluded them entirely. Before his career with Wells Fargo, James had been the Chief of Police in Placerville, California, and the Sheriff of El Dorado, County. He was known as a strict enforcer of the law and once had a double scaffold where sixteen men once died. This "no-nonsense" enforcement of the law made Placerville the "hangtown" of America. James was commemorated with a plaque and bust in the city park. Several restaurants in Placerville continue to serve an egg omelette with oysters known as "Hangtown Fry." James Hume was the legendary lawman who patrolled the stage routes for Wells Fargo for thirty-one perilous years. He arrested legions of flamboyant outlaws including, Milton Sharp, and Charles Bales alias Black Bart. He also arrested Dick Fellows, the masked Robin Hood of the 1880's and solved the complex case known as the Bullion Band stagecoach holdup. One of the strangest cases concerned a man by the name of Paul Hume. It seems that Paul Hume, who was from a well-to-do family in Illinois, stole $3500 from Wells Fargo and left for Australia. He was finally arrested there and returned to San Francisco for trial. It is said that James B. Hume was quick to point out that Paul Hume was no kin of his.

In 1852, he went to Placerville, California and "read the law". In 1855 Charles returned to Blandinville and was admitted to the Bar in 1856. During the Civil War, Charles Hume raised a company of volunteers that became the 78th Regiment, Illinois Volunteers. They fought many battles including Mission Ridge and the relief of General Burnside at Knoxville (History of McDonough County, 1885). He was captured in 1862 and was held as a prisoner until 1863. Captain Charles Hume was discharged with a disability on December 18, 1864. Thomas C. McMillian says of Charles Hume: "Among the early events of public importance in the County (McDonough) is recorded the work of Charles Hume, son of a Scot, who taught the first school in Hire Township; he became County Judge, and was a gallant soldier in the Civil War." When Abraham Lincoln was campaigning against Stephen A. Douglas for the senate, he visited the home of Charles Hume in Blandinburg, Illinois.

Helen Hume ~ Mother John McLaren.11

James B. Hume ~ At the time of the gold rush, Hume and his brother John were living on a farm in Indiana. They were from a family of ten children whose parents had settled in Indiana in 1837. It had been a long and demanding journey from their previous home in New York and life continued to be very difficult. All of the children worked as farm hands. The Hume family had immigrated to this country from East Gordon, Berwickshire, Scotland in 1795. They made the journey on the same ship as the Kedzie family. Robert Hume, the grand father, had lived be one hundred years old. The two brothers, James and John, joined the thousand who made the journey to California, but the hoped for riches eluded them entirely. Before his career with Wells Fargo, James had been the Chief of Police in Placerville, California, and the Sheriff of El Dorado, County. He was known as a strict enforcer of the law and once had a double scaffold where sixteen men once died. This "no-nonsense" enforcement of the law made Placerville the "hangtown" of America. James was commemorated with a plaque and bust in the city park. Several restaurants in Placerville continue to serve an egg omelette with oysters known as "Hangtown Fry." James Hume was the legendary lawman who patrolled the stage routes for Wells Fargo for thirty-one perilous years. He arrested legions of flamboyant outlaws including, Milton Sharp, and Charles Bales alias Black Bart. He also arrested Dick Fellows, the masked Robin Hood of the 1880's and solved the complex case known as the Bullion Band stagecoach holdup. One of the strangest cases concerned a man by the name of Paul Hume. It seems that Paul Hume, who was from a well-to-do family in Illinois, stole $3500 from Wells Fargo and left for Australia. He was finally arrested there and returned to San Francisco for trial. It is said that James B. Hume was quick to point out that Paul Hume was no kin of his.
