[10138] IGI data gives Joseph Humphries ch. Nov. 8, 1702 at St. Stephen's Parish in Northumberland VA. Father: Joseph; mother: Mary. Beverly Fleet gives this: "Jo'n Humpres son of Jo's b. Nov 8, 1702." Another researcher has verified that the original parish record does give John and not Joseph as the child born to Joseph and Mary. However, Joseph was likely one of their children and a brother of John. Joseph Humphries left a will written February 19, 1769, and probated in Northumberland Co., VA on June 12, 1769 (Record Book 7, 1766-1770, p. 354-5). Cited in Northumberland Co.,VA Vol #1, Abstract of Wills 1750-1770, p. 140 by Lewis. He is buried in St. Stephen's Parish, Northumberland, VA, according to JoAnn Rork Williams. Transcription of Will of Joseph Humphries (b. ca 1700; d. 1769). This will was written February 19, 1769 and was probated in Northumberland Co., VA on June 12, 1769 (Record Book 7, 1766-70, p. 354) In the name of God Amen, I Joseph Humphries of Northumberland County be sick & weak in body but of perfect memory thanks be to God for the same, I first Recommend my soul to Almighty God that gave it to me hoping for a full pardon for all my sins through the Precious death of my Savior Christ Jesus. Item, I give unto my wife Hannah my negroe woman named Sue & negroe girle named Jemine to her for this natural life and after her decease to be equally divided amongst her children named George, John and Susanna to them and their heirs of their bodyes lawfully begotten forever. Item, I give unto my son George Humphries one negro girle named Franke to him and his heirs lawfully begotten for his body forever. Item I give to my son John Humphries one negro boy named Anthony to him and his heirs lawfully begotten of his body forever. Item I given unto my daughter Susanna Humphries one negro boy named Charles to she and her heirs lawfully begotton of her body forever and if she should die without heir to return to my two sons George Humphries and John Humphries. Item I give unto my son Elijah Humphries one shilling of my estate and nomore. Item I given unto my son Uriah Humphries one shilling and nomore. Item I give unto my son Joseph Humphries one shilling and nomore. Item I give unto my son Spencer Humphries one shilling and nomore. Item I give unto my daughter Sarah Dameron one bed and furniture and one shilling and nomore. Item I give unto my Daughter Elizabeth Johnson one shilling and nomore. Item I give unto my daughter Dianna Edwards one shilling and nomore. Item I give unto my daughter Sinar Haynie one shilling and nomore. Lastly I appoint James Daughity and Charles Helms my hole & sole executors for this my last Will and Testiment. February 19, 1769 Joseph Humphries, his mark Signed and sealed in Presence of us, Eban Helms, John Daughity Transcribed by JoAnn Rork Williams, and included in her book "Genealogical Anecdotes of Our Ancestral Families." Joseph was a member of the Humphries clan that lived in St. Stephen's Parish in Northumberland County, VA. He is likely a descendant of William Humphries, who came to Northumberland Co., VA in 1640. John Humphries, the likely person referenced in Beverly Fleet's note, lived in Northumberland at the same time as Joseph and may have been a brother of Joseph's. He married Ann Wood and had the following children: Winifred (b. January 9, 1728), Joseph (b. March 16, 1732) and George (b. July 27, 1741). A William Humphries, perhaps an uncle to Joseph and John (or father to Joseph), is mentioned several times in Beverly Fleet's Northumberland VA records. "William, wit deed Williams to Lattimore 26 Sept 1706... William and Ann his wife on behalf of "their son" Tho Harding, bind him to Grant Jewsbury 24 July 1714... William and Anne his wife next of kin to Cuthbert Bennett, dec'd 20 Aug 1718." [Could Ann's maiden name have been Bennett? Could Thomas Harding have been her son by a previous husband?] In the Administration of Estates Granted in Northumberland, we have more mentions of a William Humphries: "October 16 1728 (executrix Ellinor Humphries), September 14 1737 (executrix Winifred Humphreys). These estate papers have been lost." Note that when the will was filed Ellinor was named executrix. She can be presumed to be his wife, who had died by 1737, when the will was probated. The Winifred who was the 1737 executrix cannot have been the Winifred who was the daughter of John, since she would have been about 10 at the time of William's death. She may have been William's second wife or an unmarried sister of William and the elder Joseph (father of John, b. 1702). This William may be the same William as the one mentioned above, provided that he also had, at one time, a wife named Ann. Otherwise, we have two Williams. Some researchers have speculated that John and William were both brothers of Joseph. There was, at this time, also a George Humphries of an age suitable to be a fourth brother in this family. The WFT Census index for Colonial America (CD#310) shows the following Humphries (-ris) from St. Stephen's Parish: George Humphries 1748 and 1758 rent roll, John Humphries, 1748 and 1759 rent roll, Joseph Humphries 1748, 1758, and 1759 rent roll, Joseph Humphries Jr 1759 rent roll. In 1782 John Humphris Jr. is shown in Northumberland Co. enumeration (p. 38) 0402. Ann Humphris is also shown in Northumberland Co (p. 38) 0501.

[7175] Joseph was a soldier in the American Reolution from GA. He was employed in "Taking charge of public wagons and teams Sept. 13, 1788". He was living on Big Shoal Creek in Franklin Co., GA by 1787 and was a J.P. from Franklin Co., GA 1789-1794. He then moved to Jackson Co., GA. where he was a Justice of the Peace 1796-1798. When he died he had an estate valued at $2,680. (Possible brothers: David, John, George, William, Thomas, and Uriah.) From Judith Alef, Portland, Oregon: Joseph was accorded recognition as a Patriot for services rendered to Revolutionary forces, taking charge of public wagons. -- Heritage of Lafayette Co MI- LDS 976.283 -F300 He was a member of the Georgia Constitutional Convention of 1798 from Jackson County, Georgia, and was a Captain of "Gum Log Company" -- Franklin County Regiment of Militia in the 1790's. Notes for Captain Joseph Humphries, Jr. (b. 1745 Northumberland Co., Va) Joseph Humphries, Jr. was the sixth child (third son) of Joseph Humphries and Elizabeth Tignor Humphries of Northumberland Co., VA. A note on a family group sheet compiled by Evelyn McFarland: "In 1790s, Rebecca and Haneys, Jacksons, Sparks, Camps all liv. near Chauga Creek, Shoal Creek Chauga Church, N.C., also bordered Tugaloo River -- boundary between N. C. and Ga.: church estab. in Ga. 1806, Chauga Bapt. Church Records. Uriah, Shadrack & Geo. W. moved to Ga." Joseph Humphries was a Captain in the Revolutionary War. He appears in the DAR rolls. He is also listed in the Georgia's Roster of the American Revolution by L. L. Knight, as noted in Mary F. A. Word's book "John Bryson Word." Knight's Roster of the Revolutionary War shows that Joseph Humphries received a grant for his service. He migrated to Franklin and Jackson Counties, GA after the war. He became very active in land. He was a Justice of the Peace in Jackson Co. and witnessed many deed transfers. Also, land that he and Rebecca owned was bought and sold several times, as shown by both names on the deed records. His name appears on the tax lists of 1802 and 1808 for Franklin Co., GA. He was a delegate to the 1798 Georgia Convention representing Jackson Co. The Humphries family folder in the Ga. Archives, Dept of Archives & History, shows the following notations: Justice, Inferior Court, Franklin Co., Dec 22 1789-1794 resigned; Justice, Inferior Court, Jackson Co., Mar 26, 1796-1798, resigned; Member, Constitutional Convention, Jackson Co.; Capt 2 (or gun log) Company, Franklin Co. Regt. of Militia February 12, 1791. (From notes furnished by John D. Bates in correspondence January 1998.) A sign in Fort Yargo Park in Georgia reads: "This remarkably preserved log blockhouse was built in 1793, according to historians. There are several references to Fort Yargo as existing prior to 1800. Its location is given as three miles southwest of "Jug Tavern," original name for Winder. Early historians say Fort Yargo was one of four forts built by the Humphries Brothers to protect early settlers from Indians. The other three forts were listed as at Talassee, Thomocoggan, now Jefferson, and Groaning Rock, now Commerce. Fort Yargo is now a State Park with recreational facilities." [The Humphries Brothers mentioned were sons of Joseph.] 1796: Joseph serves as one of original judges at first Jackson Co. Court, 1 August. 1798: Joseph was a Representative to Georgia Constitution Convention; voted adoption. (Source: Heritage of Lafayette Co MS, Vol. 1. Humphreys section by JoAnn McClung, George Stames, Margaret Speckels). Joseph left a will in Jackson Co., GA Will Book A, pp 33-34. It was dated August 16, 1807 and probated Jan. 7, 1811. From Ga. Intestate Records by Jeanette H. Austin: "Humphries, Joseph, decd. exrs of LWT, George, Shadrack, and Uriah Humphries, ask for leave to sell land 9/3/1810 Jackson Co. Ga Ordinary's Minutes. While the family was visiting or temporarily moved back to Virginia, Joseph Humphries, [b. 1745 Va]. met his wife, Rebeckah Phelps (b. 1750 in GA) and married about 1770 in GA. Immediately after their marriage, Rebeckah Phelps and Joseph Humphries moved to North Carolina. Their first child was George Washington Humphries, b. 9 Aug 1772 in Franklin, N.C.. He was christened that Nov 9. Before moving to Virginia, the couple had Shadrach Humphries (1774). In Virginia, they had Uriah Humphries (1776) at the start of the American Revolution. By 1778, the family was on the move again. This time, back to Georgia. They had nine more children: Sally (1778), Polly ( 1780), Judah (Abt 1781), Hannah (1782), Judy (1784), Rebecca (1786), Nancy (1787), Sarah (1788), and Mary (1789). With the Revolution over, their first son was married. George Washington Humphries married Abigail McDaniel (b. 20 Oct 1768 in Marion, Perry Co., AL) on Sep 26 1792 in Franklin, GA. [See Note 1 for Abigail's ancestry.] After having one child, Nancy (1794), the couple moved or visited AL. There they had Elizabeth Humphries (1799). The remaining seven children were born in Jackson, GA. They were: Allen (1800), Jesse (1802), Rebeckah (1804), Alexander (1806), James (1810), George Washington (1813), and Judy.
