Quick Overview || Documentation || Links
Normally, here I try to write a little about the family in general. But this page will be different. All I know about Susan Humphrey is her name.
I have not located her in any census records, nor have I been able to locate her husband, Amos Irish, in the 1850 census; if anyone knows where he was, please let me know!
I have one clue: in 1855, Amos Irish, his third wife (also named Susan), and two sons (one by each Susan), were living with the Henry Humphrey family in Clarendon, Orleans County, New York.
Were Henry and Elsie Humphrey Susan's parents?
I have included everything I have found about them in Analyzing the Evidence -- but maybe you can suggest some source that I may have missed? Please help me break through this brickwall!
