Lemuel Gordon Humphrey1,2

b. 5 May 1766, d. 16 June 1823
     Lemuel Gordon Humphrey was born on 5 May 1766 at Canton, Hartford Co., CT.1 He was the son of Samuel Humphrey Jr. and Prudence Mills. Lemuel Gordon Humphrey married Dorcas Case, daughter of Isaac Case Jr. and Dorcas Moses, on 10 March 1788 at Hartford Co., CT.1 Lemuel Gordon Humphrey died on 16 June 1823 at Delaware Co., OH, at age 57.1

The house in which Lemuel was born is still standing (1884). He and Dorcas resided in West Simsbury, Ct. Lemuel was represented by James Kilbourn in the Scioto Company partition August 11, 1804; he was one of the original 38 members of that company.3 In the year 1807, he, with his wife and family of seven children, removed to Ohio and settled in the wild forest, on the dividing lands between the Olentangy and Scioto rivers, and on the old Indian trail leading from Lake Erie on the north to the Ohio river on the south, near the now south line of Liberty Township, Delaware County. Mrs. Laura Clark used to tell her children how the Indians would come to the cabin and ask her father to smoke the pipe of peace with them. The younger members of the family were much terrified at their appearance as they sat before the fire.

Mr. Humphrey was a leading citizen in the county; was for many years a Justice of the Peace, and held many positions of trust and honor. He and his wife were members of the Protestant Episcopal Church and regular attendants upon its communion at Worthngton, seven miles from their residence. He died on his homestead. Writes his only surviving child (1883), Mrs. Sarah Wilson, of Iowa City, Iowa: "I think, from what I can remember and from what mother has told us, that he was very patient, kind and good. He died with lingering consumption. I was quite young and cannot remember very much, only the death-bed scene--it was so calm. They raised him up and he sang the hymn through commencing, --


     'Lord, what a feeble piece          Our life how poor a trifle 'tis
     Is this our mortal frame,               That scarce deserves a name."


     
He was a good singer and a good Christian; and so passed away one of the best of earth. They went into the back-woods and endured the hardships and disadvantages of pioneer life, with very few privileges and little society. Their children were all baptized in their infancy and educated in the Protestant Episcopal Church."

Their grandson, Mr. Russell C. Hall, of Lewis Center, O., adds these observations: --"Among all the grandchildren there is not, nor ever has been, one that became addicted to the use of intoxicating drinks. But in the communities where they live they are known as positive temperance men and women, and always ready to take advance ground in all movements to build it up in society. In the late war, I know of thirteen that were soldiers in the Union Army, not counting Uncle Aaron's family. In politics, of the nine families, all were whigs and abolitionists, and then republicans, except one daughter's family who have been and are democrats. In religion, every family, with the same exception, has furnished active workers in the Church and Sabbath-School. In education, all of our aunts, at some time, were teachers in the public schools, and each family of grandchildren has furnished one or more teachers for our common and higher grade of schools, and I have never known of one that did not succeed." 4
