    1/7/2020 edit Rebecca Perry, daughter of Samuel and Mary (Millard) Perry of Rehoboth WAS NOT the wife of John Humphrey. It was proved in 2012 that John Humphrey married instead, Rebecca (Smith) Perry, widow of David Perry and daughter of Ensign Joshua and Mary (Peck) Smith.

    See John Gibson, A New Identity for Rebecca, Wife of John Humphrey of Rehoboth, Massachusetts: Rebecca (Smith) Perry, Widow of David Perry of Rehoboth [The American Genealogist, Vol 86 (2012), pages 213-216]
