Clyde Dauben writes:My family ( Fred and Gertrude Dauben) lived in Hume from (estimate) 1913 to about 1922. My father was the engineer on a steam shovel mining coal there for KLANER mining Co. They lived there when I was born in 1915 but went to Pittsburg, Kansas for the birth. My father had a stroke at the age of 34 and to support the family, my mother had a restaurant on the north side of the square. She made lunches for the miners. They moved from Hume to Gravette, Arkansas about 1921-22.
