Re: Book`Humphrey` Oak Leaf Press, 1932, Pub. Clinton, Ok.
I photographed a manuscript collection titled `Papers of Daniel Smith` in a U. library in Tennessee. This collection is called `misplaced` as far as location, of all the papers in the library, as it pertains to two sites in NY, including Stephentown and Lysander.A Smith/Humphrey marriage is found in the will of Josiah Humphrey of Stephentown, NY.,also mentioned in the book ~Humphrey~. The Smith Collection has a New York Militia paper advancing the rank of Josiah Humphrey.These Humphreys and the Smiths of interest are mentioned in the great diary that is found in part on the website ~Stephentown, NY Genealogy~. Josiah W. Humphrey settled near Plainville, NY after the death of Josiah, the father. Another son settled in Fayette, Ohio in Fulton Co. That is where the author of the book was born.Some of the names you listed are intrigueingly familiar, but I feel cautious about happenstance.Daniel Smith was in Stephentown by 1820, and was my gr.gr.grandfather`s next door neighbor as shown by the 1830 census, page 289. His wife was Elizabeth Gardner.There were two more Daniel Smiths in the area at the time, one in the north side of Rensselaer co., and the other in Mass.The one in Mass. shows a probability of being related to the Daniel that I have researched.Daniel`s son moved to a farm in Onondaga that he and his father bought together, the son`s name was Daniel G. Smith, (mother Gardner).They had children including a son Enos.After I study your information better I will notify you if I find anything that is more concrete. Regards,ws
