    "144. Rev. Daniel4 Humphreys, [43] (Dea. John,3 Sergt. John,2 Michael1,) was born in 1707, at Simsbury, Ct.; graduated at Yale College in 1732; and became pastor of the First Church of Christ (Congregational) in Derby, Ct., in 1734, having been given a call December 3d, 1733, and the day of ordination having been 'appointed for the first Wednesday of March next.' …

    'The following statement was recorded by John Humphreys, the town clerk at the time, and is probably a very faithful, as it is a very interesting, sketch of the character and life of his father:—

    'The Rev. Daniel Humphreys died at Derby on Lord's day morning, the second day of September, A. D., 1787.

    'For more than half a century he was the established minister of the First society in said town. His funeral was attended on Tuesday, when, the corpse being carried into the meeting-house, the Rev. Dr. Edwards began divine service with prayer, which was succeeded by singing a favorite psalm of the deceased, the seventy-first. Then the Rev. Mr. Leavenworth preached a sermon from 2 Tim., iv. 6-8, to a numerous and mournful auditory. After which was sung an anthem taken from the seventh chapter of Job. The procession then moved to the grave and performed the interment with everv mark of affectionate respect for so pious and venerable a character.'"
