Back to Humphreys Family Page

Here is the family of another daughter of Dr. John and Jane Warren Humphreys.  Again, I have very little information about them.  Is that because she is a "female?"   It makes one wonder.  Apparently Mariah and her husband stayed around Highgate, Duart and Orford Township, Ontario all their lives.  They are buried close by Dr. John and Jane.  Here is a photo of their grave in the Duart Cemetery.

Below is a historical narrative record of Amariah and Mariah Humphreys Brooks and their families taken from pages 789 and 780 of a book entitled Commemorative Biographical Record It appears to contain historical records of persons who lived in Orford Township or Kent County in Ontario.  It must have been written between 1905 and 1910.
