Here's what I have.Brent Holcomb's book on the Humphries family published in 1985 shows that the administration of Charles Humphries's estate in 1803 mentioned John, Bennett, Thomas, Richard, Absalom and Charles II Humphries.They are all presumably Charles's sons (there is a deed from Charles to Charles II and Bennett in Union Co. naming those two specifically as sons dated 1798).No daughters are listed in the administration of Charles's estate, but Robert Smith, Jeremiah Kingsley and Thomas Rainey each received bequests that would indicate that they were sons-in-law of Charles Humphries. I know of no documents that exist that give evidence about the first names of the daughters.But there is no indication that Charles and Mary Bennett Humphries had a daughter named Elizabeth who married a Simpson.
Bennett Humphries, son of Charles, left a will dated 1836.In that will he mentioned wife Elizabeth.I have never seen any information posted on the web about her last name.His will mentioned several daughters by their married names, but specifically referred to his daughter "Elizabeth Simpson" and "her husband Darling Simpson." So it seems pretty clear that Bennett had a daughter Elizabeth who married Darling Simpson.
It is this Elizabeth and Darling who are supposed to be the parents of the Sarah Ann Simpson who married James O. Humphries in Alabama.
John and Elizabeth Timms had a son named Charner, but I recently submitted an article to the South Carolina Magazine of Ancestral Research (SCMAR) summarizing evidence that John and Elizabeth's son Charner married Mary Darby (daughter of Asa Darby) of Chester Co. and was living in Dekalb Co. Ga. by 1831.He is the same Charner Humphries who was a minor historical figure in the founding of Atlanta.He owned and operated the White Hall Inn, which is considered to be one of the first settlements of the Atlanta area.There is at least one deed that without a doubt ties Charner Humphries of Dekalb Co. Ga. to his father John Humphries who died in 1815 in Chester County.Charner Humphries of Dekalb Co., Ga. lived until 1855 and is buried in one of the pioneer cemeteries of Atlanta.
That the Charner Humphries in Georgia was the son of John and Elizabeth Timms Humphries is not a new assertion, but goes back to data published by John Humphries in 1938.Charlotte Humphries in Union County, SC, definitely had a husband named Charner Humphries who died in 1838 (she was administrator of his estate).But he was not the son of John and Elizabeth Timms Humphries, who lived on in Georgia until 1855.He was a completely different man.I speculate in the article about who the "other" Charner's father might have been (perhaps Charles's son Richard, whose children are not listed in any will or administration anywhere).But no really knows at this point.
The Charner Humphries in Mississippi would be a third Charner Humphries.
