July 8, 2021 - The descendants of William Humphries will gather for their thirty-fourth reunion in the Family Life Center at First Baptist Church in Center on Saturday, July 31, 2021, from 11am to 2pm. It has been over two years since we last gathered. The events of 2020 and 2021 have brought us keen appreciation for family relationships and shaper focus of priorities. We invite all the Humphries clan to come and share stories, pictures, laughter and great food on July 31. Attendees are asked to bring covered dishes and a nominal gift for a fun gift exchange after the meal.
William married Mary Ann Barr while they lived in England. They settled in Shelby County in 1874 where they raised six children. Four years after Mary Ann's death, William married Ellen Eliza McCauley. William and Ellen had eight children. William helped with the work on the county courthouse and old county jail.
