Arthur "Arter" Humfleet
son of
William &Piety(Sasser) Humfleet
b: 11 Oct 1847 Knox Co, KY
d: 21 Aug 1929 Knox Co, KY
buried: Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Laurel Co, KY
MARRIED:
Minerva Helen Sprinkle,
on 19 Feb 1869, in Claiborne Co, TN
daughter of
Herl &Tabitha(Trent) Sprinkle

d: 11 Mar 1901 Knox Co, KY
buried: Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Laurel Co, KY




Arter's & Manerva's Elopement

During the Civil War,
Arter's father, William Humfleet, was for the South, and
Manerva's father, Herl Sprinkle, was for the North.
Because of that, Manerva's father would not give her
in marriage to Arter, so the couple eloped
to Cumberland Gap (from Knox Co, KY), and
on 19 Feb 1869, in Claiborne Co, TN,
they got married.
They rode horseback and spent the night
at the salt licks in Clay County, KY.

"Horseback Honeymoon"


It seems odd that their route
took them through Clay County.
We wonder why they went that way.

The 3 antique maps on the right
illustrate the areas involved,
including some of the towns,
county lines, state lines, etc.,
between Clay Co, KY, and
Claiborne Co, TN
(one map takes up
where another leaves off).

The couple left out from
- then returned to -
Knox County,
so why, we wonder,
would they have gone north
into Clay County?
