Humphrey, John

Umphry has been identified as an Eastern Indian, possibly Pennacook or Eastern Abenaki; however, his marriage to Great David's sister might have given him some rights as a Nipmuck.  At a later date he identified as a Schaghticoke from Albany, but that claim was disputed by a Hatfield Indian.   In 1672, he and Paupachokowin were indicted for the murder of Samuel Paugatowhen in Boston but Umphry was subsequently found not guilty.
