Biography*  

As appeared in the HISTORY OF COSHOCTON COUNTY CHAPTER LXVI, TIVERTON TOWNSHIP, Page 595



"The next settler, of whom anything is known was William Humphrey, who came to this township about 1812,
from the vicinity of Fall river Massachusetts. He was a brother to Squire Humphrey, a prominent pioneer of New
Castle township, and owned lots 19, 20 and 29, of section 3. He brought his family and goods through the
wilderness on a litter, made by strapping poles to two horses, placed one in front of the other. The cabin which
he hastily put together for the shelter of his family, was without door, floor or chimney, and often at night wild-cats
and coos would clamber over the roof and make night hideous with their equaling and screeching."



"Mr. Humphrey emigrated to his western home in time to be here drafted for service in the frontier army. His
cabin was some distance from other settlements, and it is said that while out in the woods one day, he was
accosted by an officer, a stranger to him, come to summon the drafted men to service, who inquired of him the
course to William Humphrey's cabin. Mr. Humphrey informed him and, suspecting his errand, passed further
into the forest in the opposite direction. He saw no more of the officer and was not disturb any further. This is the
nearest approach to early military service by the pioneers of this township, of which any knowledge is had. Mr.
Humphrey perused a farmer's life and died and was buried upon the home place. "
