Notes
a. Note:   NI0035
Note:   About this time, some of the descendants of GWH begin spelling his name Humphreys.
George Washington Humphries is buried in Yellow Leaf Cemetery, according to Evelyn McFarland. Jean B. Burlington, 912 Swanson Blvd., Fayetteville, TN 37334 has done much research on the descendants of George Washington Humphries. She submitted a pedigree to the October 1997 edition of Humphrey Family Quarterly; some names and dates of descendants are taken from this pedigree.
Information is also taken from a family group sheet submitted to the Anniston public library by Nancy Gilliam, 1709 Santa Monica, Kingsville, TX and dated May 1981. She gives as her sources family papers, will, tombstone, and Ruth Harlow. Also from study done on this family by Carl Humphreys of Lubbock, TX.
According to Carl Humphreys (Lubbock TX 79424, in study privately published 1991), "(George) and several family members moved to Marion Co., Alabama when it was opened to settlement. George acquired public land in Marion Co., Ala. Joseph and Allen Humhreys (George's sons) also acquired land in 1822 in Marion Co., Ala. They lived there until about 1835... The Humphreys clain moved to Lafayette and Yalobusha Co., MS. (near Oxford) in the late 1830s, buying a large acreage of farmland. George was a Hardshell Baptist. He was a very slow talker and a heavy set man. He was engaged in farming all his life. The records show that he raised corn and cotten in Mississippi."
