Amaneunsis Monday - Don Langdon John Humphries and Clarinda Melissa Jones

Amenuensis Monday is a daily blogging prompt used by Geneabloggers.com to help them post content on their sites. An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another. Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin. Here is my contribution today:

...William Humphries, Sr. married Elizabeth McCraw (Betsy McCraw) and they had a son named...
......Don Langdon John Humphries who married Clarinda Malissa Jones (Clarinda Malissie Jones, Clarinda Melissa Jones) and they had a son named...
.........Christopher Shuford Humphries who married Louise Anna Ruppe and they had a daughter named...
............Macy Ora Humphries who married Birl Henderson Bridges and they had a daughter named...
...............Pauline Bridges who married Charles Delbert Harris and they had a daughter named...
..................Barbara Harris who married Chase Furnas and they had a daughter named...
.....................Anna, my sister-in-law, who married Stan's brother, Kenny Harris (not from the same Harris line)! Anna and Kenny have 3 sons named Evans, Aaron and Logan.

This story is for Anna, their sons (my dear nephews), and Anna's family.

Don Langdon John Humphries was born 3/1/1833 in North Carolina to William Humphries and Elizabeth McCraw. He married Clarinda Malissa Jones on 12/6/1855 in Polk County, NC.
