After serving with the 14th Continentals' at the Siege of Boston, he volunteered to march to Quebec under Benedict Arnold, September 1775 with Simeon Thayer.|
Humphrey was taken prisoner at Quebec the 31st of December 1775. He was paroled 11 August 1776.
He received a commission as a Captain October 22, 1777 in the Rhode Island Reg. He served From April 1777 to July 1778 in the Rhode Island 2nd. It served as part of Varnum's Brigade.
While in the 2nd R.I. he was engaged in battles at:
Red Bank (Fort Mercer) New Jersey 22 Oct. 1777
Monmouth 26 June 1778
Battle of Rhode Island 29 Aug. 1778
Springfield, New Jersey 23 June 1780
By act of Congress the 1st and 2nd Rhode Island were consolidated into one unit. Humphrey was retained in Olney's R.I. Battalion, 14 May 1781.
His 7th battle star was for the Battle of Yorktown and earned him a commission as Major. He retired November 1783.
|An interesting note: the family story handed down in our direct line is that Humphrey told his higher officers he would do the assignments of a Major but that he would not accept the increase pay because he knew General- Washington was having difficulty meeting the costs of the war. Hence the "Brevet Major listing some places and "Captain" in others because that is pay rate he received.|
General Washington viewed him as a "Major" and signed his membership certificate for the Society of Cincinnati for Major William Humphrey.
