General Notes: Husband - Joseph J HUMPHREYS
=================================================================================================

Moved from Mississippi to Texas with the Jennings Family. Owned a large home which sat high on a
bluff overlooking the falls of the San Marcos River below Martindale. The home burned. They
brought 10 of 11 children with them to Texas.

HUMPHREYS CEMETERY
  Members of the Jennings and Humphreys families settled in the Martindale area in the 1850s.
They established a cemetery on land bought by Joseph Humphreys in 1855. Set aside on this raised
area, the burial ground initially served family members who had settled the 2,000 acres
adjoining the site.
   Randolph Reed Jennings (d. 1854), who reportedly died of yellow fever on his way to
Martindale, was the first buried here, and the grave marker of Agnes Jennings (d. 1869) bears
the earliest birth year, 1783. Joseph Humphreys (d. 1864) was the first buried in the Humphreys
family plot, denoted by two obelisks. Tradition holds that a number of unmarked graves belong to
former slaves of the pioneer families. Notable burials include the graves of early settler
Jemima Crunk (1799-1876) and George H Martindale (1842-1892), son of the community's founder.
   Today, families and descendants of those buried here meet regularly and maintain the
cemetery, which was enlarged in 1946. This burial ground, a link to the area's early settlers,
remains a symbol of Martindale and its rich history.

in 1801 and the two merged in 1991. Jackson County was formed from Franklin County in 1796.
