About Humphrey McKenney

A Patriot of the American Revolution for MASSACHUSETTS with the rank of PRIVATE. DAR Ancestor # A077596

He was one of the first settlers of Limington, ME. After his father-in-law moved to Limington, he followed and built a log house in the south part of the township. He was a man of enormous frame and weight, a broad-shouldered, corpulent, rugged-featured, flush-faces, hearty and jovial old yeoman of the Limington hills. He had a lusty voice and his shout raised a flock of echoes that flew in all directions, reaching the ears of his townsmen a mile off.
