Carol, I have a great deal on the ancestry of John H. Humphrey, both Humphrey and Hobbs. Considering his own religion, it is interesting to note that he was a descendant (as I am) of the Methodist Rev. Eli Hobbs of Chaplin, Nelson Co. John's parents: Peggy Hobbs, b. 2 Feb. 1785, d. 25 Oct. 1837, dau. of Rev. Eli Hobbs, m. 17 Sept. 1808, Nelson Co., Ky., Samuel Humphrey, b. 29 Oct. 1786, Va., d. 6 Aug. 1834, Nelson Co., Ky., son of William Humphrey and Mary Summers. Both bur. Poplar Flat Meth. cem., Nelson Co., Ky.
I also have a good bit of information on the family of Elizabeth Head's mother, Elizabeth Vowels. I am also a descendant of the Vowles family and have written somewhat of a history of that family.
