John Hume, born is Spotsylvania County, Virginia, in 1732, the third son of Georhe Hume, served as midshipman in the ship of his uncle, James Hume, Royal Navy. After leaving the navy, he settled in Boston early in the American Revolution, and later in Maine, where he served in the Lincoln County Militia. By his wife, Helinor Manson, he had three sons and four daughters. The eldest son was also named John. A printed chart of the descendants of John Hume and Helinor Manson is in the library of the New York Historical Society. (Source: Memorial to George Hume, Esquire, Crown Surveyor of Virginia and Washington's Teacher of Surveying, by Lt. Col. Edgar Erskine Hume, M.C. United States Army, as reprinted from Tyler's Quarterly Historial and Genealogical Magazine, Richmond, Virginia.)
