In 1837 Elizabeth is listed as the widow of Charles
Humphries, Sr.  His will Holcomb, Union Co. Will Abstracts
1787-1849, p.  138, cites Will Bk. Transcript B:238-240.

Charles Humphries in his will of 1837 names his wife
Elizabeth and that she should have all her own property that
she had when they were married.

Elizabeth Humphries in her will of 1845, codicil 1848,
proved 1849,
... first named legatee, nephew Robt Martin, $100.
... Her niece Sarah Wilburn is to take the negro man NOCK.
[named in Jane Lindsay's will proved 1814]. ... Legacies to
niece Jane Ray, wife of Carry Ray, and to Jane Weeks, wife
of Elijah Weeks.
... Other people mentioned, but no Janet named.
(Holcomb, p.160, citing Union Wills B:422-426.)
  Elizabeth was definitely the daughter of Jane Lindsay.

And again in 1845 & 1848: Elizabeth Humphries' will, proved
1849
... mentions her Negro man NOCK;
... also her nephew Robert Martin.
