Biography of James H. Umbanhowar

James H. Umbanhowar. It may be cited as proof of the stable character of the people of Champaign County that many of the finest farms here are owned by direct descendants of the original settlers, and the land has never been out of the family since it was secured from the government a half century or more ago. The Umbanhowar farm is a case in point. Its owner is James H. Umbanhowar, who was born on this place, situated in section 17, Homer Township, September 25, 1853. The parents of James H. Umbanhowar were Samuel and Julia Anna (Spencer) Umbanhowar,
