Notes for JACOB HUMBLE:

" He was probably born in Pennsylvania, son of Uriah Humble (b. ca 1705-15)
and Charity Custer (b. 1713, m. 1735 PA). Jacob Humble (b. 1727) went to NC
(Anson Co.) cd.1770. He had 9 children (6 boys).

Jacob received land grants 1784-1794, having Rev. War patriot record
(Voucher 399-7/30/1782). "

"Jacob Humble, born about 1735, probably came to North Carolina from
Kentucky or Virginia about 1760. An abstract from Anson County (NC) Court
minutes shows that Jacob Hmble purchased 120 acres of land from James
Campbell on 14 October 1772, and an entry under date of 13 July 1774 shows
that jacob Humble was one of the hands ordered to work the public roads from
Rocky Creek to Little River under Richard Green, overseer. Montgomery County
(NC) court records show that at the December session 1785, the will of john
Simmons was produced by Jacob Humble, and that he had signed the will as one
of the witnesses on 7 December 1775. (Anson County NC Abstracts of Early
Records, pages 81, 93, and 142.)"

"He (Jacob Humble) received three Revolutionary War Vouchers, which,
unfortunately, do not indicate for what purposes the payments were
made." -Faye Johnston

56, folio 1; and Revolutionary Vouchers, North Carolina Department of

2. HENRY2 HUMBLE (JACOB1) was born Abt. 1765, and died October 29, 1829 in
Pollock, Grant Pr., La.. He married ALICIA.

Notes for HENRY HUMBLE:

" When Catahoula Parish, Louisiana, was under the rule of Spain, there were
few settlers in the area, and no Protestant Curches. After 1803 more
Americans settled in Catahoula, but before 1922, they established no
permanent Churches. The oldest church in the Ouachita Association, Catahoula
Baptist Church, is located about three miles from Enterprise, Louisiana. The
church was organized by Henry Humble, who was born in North Carolina about
1765 and moved to Amite County, Mississippi, in 1809. Humble was licensed to
preach the word on March 1, 1815. His licensing as a minister of the gospel
is registered in Prphan's Court, Volume 1, page 61, Amite County."

"In the 1810 census Humble is listed as a resident of Amite County. He was
very active as a lawyer. His name frequently appears on civil records of the
poor, and as administrator of various wills. He was also an active member of
the New Providence Baptist Church. During the period 1812 to 1822 he was
often a messenger from this church to meetings of the Mississippi River
Baptist Association."

"We do not know when Henry Humble came to Catahoula Parish on his first
trip. Paxton wrote in his 'History of Baptists in Louisiana' that Humble
came here in 1822. The minutes of the Mississippi Association show that he
signed a 'Declaration of Faith' at Gallilee Baptist Church in Amite County,
on August 14, 1824, and he asked for a letter of dismissal from Gallilee
Baptist Church on March 19, 1825. Paxton listed the preachers within the
Louisiana Association at this time (May 2, 1824). John Impson was in
Ouachita, and Henry Humble was in Catahoula."

"Humble and another preacher, John Hill, preached the Gospel of peace in the
wild and sparsely settled country. Reverend John Impson and Humble organized
the Catahoula Baptist Church. The exact date of the organization is unknown.
March 1826 marked the union of the church with the Louisiana Association.
When Impson and Humble constructed the church, it had seven members: Henry
Humble, Alicia Humble (his wife), John Hill Sr., Elizabeth Hawthorne,
Jonathan Newman, Anne Newman, and Henry Humble Jr."

"According to a local legend, some slaves were among the early members.
Shortly after the organizing of the church, a revival meeting was held, and
about 20 more souls were added."

" Humble led in the founding of the school which met in the church building
(Cottingham, 'History of Caldwell Parish')."

"In 1828 the association met at Catahoula and Humble was elected moderator.
The next year he attended the meeting of the Louisiana Association of
Baptist Churches which was held at Zion Hill Church, St.Landry Parish. He
served as moderator and preached the opening sermon. He began the long ride
home over the poor roads and rough trails through the forest. Traveling on
horseback must have tired the old preacher for he became ill October 23,
1829, and died near a settlement now called Pollock. His body was carried
back to Enterprise, where he was buried beside his wife. The cemetary has
almost been lost. No one has been buried there for over sixty years and no
road leads to it. It is on a high ridge in a pine forest south and west of
Enterprise. Humble's grave seems to be in about the center of the cemetery.
Common, uninscribed stones once identified the graves as such, but many of
the stones have been moved by vandals. The only now identifyable graves are
those of Henry and Alicia Humble, surrounded by a low stone wall. Today the
soil inside the wall is almost level with tho top. A large pin oak grows
from the center of the graves." -Irene W. McGuffee

Notes for HENRY HUMBLE:

By 1811 Henry and James Humble were in the Mississippi Territory, as they
signed a petition to Congress to establish boundaries and admit Mississippi
as a state. It was in Amite Co. that Henry Humble began his ministry.

There are conflicting stories about Henry's death. It is said that he was
confronted by a Haggerty to a duel, for which he was to choose the weapons
and the site. As Haggerty was rather short, he chose sledge hammers in Lake
Pnchartrain. Haggerty withdrew his challenge. Another story says that Henry
was killed when waylayed by Haggerty and another man.
