In a book called Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi (1891), there's a big article about the Humphreys family of Claiborne Co., MS. Is anyone researching this family? It talks about Col. Ralph Humphreys who served in the Revolution in SC. He married Agnes Wilson. They had 2 sons: Ralph and George Wilson. It gives biographies of Governor Benjamin G. Humphreys, Dr. D.S. Humphreys, Col. John Cobun Humphreys, and it mentioned many other Humphreys without going into detail.
I have an ancestor, Phebe Humphries Sutton, who sold land to J.B. Thrasher in Claiborne Co., MS, in 1835, the year her husband (Thomas Sutton) died. I was wondering if she was connected to the Humphreys of Claiborne Co.
