Seeking vitals, family history on my mother's ancestors - William HUMPHREY and Nancy PITMAN. Notes: DR FREDERICK H HUMPHREY'S 1887 BOOK "HUMPHREY FAMILY OF AMERICA" CONTAINS 1134 PAGES. A COPY IS LOCATED IN THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORIC AND GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY CIRCULATING LIBRARY FOR MEMBERS. THIS COPY INDICATES THAT THIS WILLIAM HUMPHREY CAME AS A LOYALIST TO SAINT JOHN CITY (now Nova Scotia) THEN 1793 TO NEW CANAAN (now in New Briunswick, Canada)FROM RHODE ISLAND USA WITH WIFE NANCY "PITMAN" & 6 CHILDREN. SEE 4 PAGE WRITE-UP ON THE HUMPHREY FAMILY GENEALOGY FROM THE PUBLIC ARCHIVES NEW BRUNSWICK MC600 MS1A186.
Other sources say that William & Nancy came from PA, USA - where?
I have no vitals on either. Rumour has it that Nancy Pitman also may have been known as Nancy PEATMAN or PITTMAN and was of French extract. William and Nancy had at least one son born in New Canaan, NB, Canada = John HUMPHREY, b. abt January 1814. John married an Elizabeth COREY.
