JOHN HUMPHRY came to this town early from Hingham, Mass., and settled on the east slope of the Pinnacle on the farm now occupied by his son Piam. He was a substantial farmer. Of his children, NATHANIEL and PIAM, both excellent farmers, remain near the homestead, while LEAVITT, a blacksmith, JOHN and GEORGE removed to the Flat. SUSAN was a noted tailoress. Many a boy ” with shining morning face,” has tripped to school with a lighter heart for the “new spencer” which” Aunt Susan” has made him. LYDIA married the Hon. Moses Humphry, of Concord, and ASENATH married Capt. Ariel Hall, of Williamstown, Vt.
