Elbert Harrison Humble
Birth: Dec. 30, 1888
Nevada
Vernon County
Missouri, USA
Death: May 20, 1931
Kansas, USA

The first born child of William McKee and Flora Dixon Humble, Elbert Harrison Humble was born Dec. 31, 1888 at Nevada, Missouri. He married Estella B. Wiggins on Jan. 24, 1910 at Pawhuska, OK and the two homesteaded in various locations around Oklahoma and Kansas. Children born to this union were Howard Luther, who lived only one day, James Elbert, Esther Louise, who died at the age of 2, Flora Ruth, and Richard Fred.

Although his formal education ended with the second grade, he bought electrical books, carpentry books, and others and furthered his education, studying by kerosene lamplight on the homestead. Over the years he worked in an electrical plant, in a general store, and doing construction work besides tending to a large farm. He also bought a drill and put in water wells, did carpentry, shoe cobbling, and barbering for his neighbors, and was quite the amateur photographer. He was a prolific writer, as well, and kept a daily journal from the time he and Stella married until his untimely death due to an industrial accident while doing ironwork on highway bridge construction.

A devout Christian who ended each day with Bible reading, Elbert served in the church of Christ as a deacon and taught Bible classes. He adored his family and was sorely missed by them after his death.
