“William Humberston, advanced in years, is critically ill at his home, Ormond St.” [FMJ 4-8-1905, p. 2]

“At his home, in this place, Monday, April 17, 1905, Mr. William Humberston, aged 79 years. Mr. Humberston belonged to an old and well known family of this place and vicinity. Of quiet, unobtrusive, Christian manners, he was exemplary of a good life. His profession of devout piety was made good by long and consistent membership of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. The widow and several children are bereaved by his death. He was a brother of Thomas Humberston. During the war, Mr. Humberston served the Union as a member of the 18th Pennsylvania Regiment of Calvary, and he had long been a member of Thoburn Post, G.A.R. of this place. This body turned out at the funeral Thursday afternoon.” [FMJ 4-15-1905, p. 2]
