William Humphrey ws born about 1739 in Londonderry, New Hampshire, the son of immigrant John Humphrey of Northern Ireland.  His wife was Barbara Unknown, born about 1745 and died 8 August 1808 in Londonderry.  They had six children, including Jane (see the photo above), who died unmarried on 11 January 1835.

I don't know the relationship of the William Humphrey family to the Samuel Humphrey buried in between Jane and her parents.  William Humphrey had a brother named James, who married a Margaret Stuart and they removed to Duanesburgh, New York.  This tombstones states that Samuel's parents were James and Jane.  There were several Humphrey families in Londonderry/Derry at this time period.
