Birth: Jan. 8, 1835
North Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 4, 1901

66 years old
Wife of James Nathan Harp
Married in 1854 in Morehouse Parish.
Info from Sisson family Bible, My Finfolk by T.Y. Harp and Known Burials of Morehouse Parish.

I searched Ancestry.com and easily found Elizabeth's Father, James Humphrey, Jr, and Mother, Martha Humphrey, listed in the 1850, 1860 & 1870 census. Both born in North Carolina and residing in Ward 2 of Morehouse Parish after 1850. Most children born in NC.
Children:
Mary Ann Humphrey b. 1832 NC
Benjamin D. Humphrey b. 1834 NC
Elizabeth Humphrey b. 1835 NC
Urvin Humphrey b. 1840 NC
James A. Humphrey b. 1841 NC
Richard W. Humphrey bl 1844 NC
William P. Humphrey b. 1846 NC
Lewis L. Humphrey b. 1846 NC
Harvey R. Humphrey b. 1951 LA
Millicent J. Humphrey b. 1853 LA

1870 Census
Humphreys, Martha age 60 F
Humphreys, William age 23 M
Humphreys, Harvey age 18 M
Humphrey, Millicent age 16 F
Johnson, Hardy age 17 M

Got many identical "hits" on other family trees but no locales, death dates or info on burials, etc. Looked under Humphreys, Humphrey, & Humphries.
