  • Notes 
    • A short time after their marriage, Edward and Hannah D. Sacket entered the foreign mission field, going to India. There they labored faithfully and not without results for a number of years, when Mr. Hume became broken in health and they reluctantly took passage for a return voyage to their native land. Mr. Hume died on the voyage and was buried at sea, leaving Mrs. Hume to continue her homeward journey with their five young children, two of whom, on reaching maturity, returned to India and took up the work their parents had laid down. - Weygant
      ------
      From John C. Hume, Jr.:
      According to the biographer of James B. Hume, Wilson was the parson of the Pretty Prairie Church.
      Source: Email from Barbara Mcrae April 3, 1998, 6:48 AM.
      Robert Wilson and Hannah Sackett Hume left Salem, Mass. on April 11, 1839 on the brig "Waverley" a ship of 232 tons. She was carrying ice to Bombay. The ice had come from Spots Pond in Arlington, Mass.
      Robert became ill in 1854. Hannah took him and her children on board the ship MERCHANTMAN to return to the US. Robert died of dysentery on board ship off Capetown. Hannah took the children back to the US. Somehow, she got them all through college. Both her sons returned to mission work with the American Marathi Mission.
