I am trying to determine the correct lineage for the Ward Cook Humphreys that is in the tree I am researching.

In general, there appear to be two that were both born in the early 1840s in Virginia, most likely Monroe County, WV later).

It seems as though one married a Nancy Jackson Robinson and the other married a Melinda Jane Broyle.

Based on 1870 census and beyond I have confirmed that the Ward Cook Humphreys I want is the one who married Nancy Jacson Robinson. (Not sure which last name is actually her father's name btw.)

I am trying to discover who the parents are of my Ward Cook Humphreys. My options seem to be either St.Clair Humphreys and Barbara Miller or Samuel Humphreys and Sarah Jane Kinkaid.

Any help would be apreciated as I have found postings that seem to be absolutely convinced of both options here and at other locations.
