Numa Fletcher Heitman

Numa Fletcher Heitman was born September 11, 1860, in Davidson County, North Carolina.  He was the oldest in a family of nine, and his struggle for education he so much desired was a long and hard one.  He had two uncles, one a Methodist preacher, and they helped him in the furtherance of his ambitions.  By borrowing from the Charles F. Deem's fund, he entered the University of North Carolina, and was graduated in 1882 with the degree of A. B.  While at school he made the highest average grade in his class, won the prize in moral philosophy, and also carried away the gold medal offered in oratorical competition.

     He decided to study la, and entered the law department of the University of Virginia, taking his degree in 1885.  He came to Kansas City at once and hung out his shingle and has been engaged in general practice ever since.

     He married Miss Emma Coleman October 8, 1888, and is the father of two children, John Hood Heitman, twelve years old, and Numa F., Jr., twenty months old.
