    JAMES MAITLAND is one of the substantial farmers of De Kalb county, his farm being located in section 35, Sycamore township. He was born in Darlington, Northumberland county, Canada, February 28, 1849. His father, James Maitland, Sr., was a Highlander, born in Argyleshire, Scotland, July 20, 1812, and who emigrated to Canada in 1835, locating near Darlington. He was a carpenter and ship builder by trade, and about 1854 moved to Colburn, Canada, where he was employed at his trade at Cole's wharf some eight years. He then returned to Darlington where he engaged in farming until 1868, when he removed to Malta, Illinois, where he again worked at his trade. He first married Mary Brown, of Darlington, and in 1841 married Miss Sarah Renwick, who was the mother of our subject. She was born in Dumfriesshire, Scotland, April 16, 1822, and who came to America in 1835, her parents settling near Darlington, Canada. She was the daughter of Walter and Mary (Guthrie) Renwick, also natives of Scotland. Her death occurred in Sycamore, Illinois, September 12, 1894. The paternal grandfather, William Maitland, was a native of Scotland, where his death occurred in 1814. The subject of this sketch was about five years old when the family moved to Colburn, and he there attended school until about the age of fourteen years, when they removed five miles northeast of Colburn, where he resided until coming to Illinois in 1868. He arrived at Malta, November 14, and for one year worked on a farm. He was then employed on various farms in the neighborhood for three years, at the expiration of which time he went to Sycamore and worked with a hay press and at his trade for a time, and for three seasons engaged in running a threshing machine. He was married in Sycamore, October 14, 1874, to Miss Ada L. Stark, a native of De Kalb county, and a daughter of Marshall Stark, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. By this union two children have been born: Howard Henry, who died at the age of four
    years and eight months, and Everitt P. They have adopted Herbert Harmon Stark, one of the sons of Harmon M. Stark, the eldest brother of Mrs. Maitland.
    Soon after his marriage Mr. Maitland began farming one mile north of Sycamore on a farm of his father-in-law, and there resided one year. Removing to Kingston he there engaged in farming two years, and then returned to his father-in-law's farm, which he operated eight years. He then rented his present farm for two years, having an option for its purchase. He bought it in 1892, the farm comprising two hundred and ten acres, every- foot of it tillable land. It is well improved and has between five and six miles of tiling. In addition to general farming Mr. Maitland engages in dairying to some extent, usually keeping from eighteen to twenty cows. His barn is one of the most substantial in the county, being what is known as a truss barn, and is thirty-six by sixty-four feet. A well one hundred and four feet deep gives an unfailing supply of pure water. He has two orchards on the place, covering about three acres of land, on which he raises apples, peaches, plums, pears, cherries and small fruit in abundance.
    In politics Mr. Maitland is a Republican, and has served as road commissioner and school director for some years. He is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, of the subordinate lodge, encampment, and canton of Patriarchs Militant. He has passed all the chairs in the subordinate lodge and encampment, serving as noble grand and chief patriarch. He has also been grand representative for seven years. As a citizen he is enterprising and progressive, and his farm shows the work of a master hand.
