The death of a Humphrey Hadley is listed in "Bridgewater Vermont 1779-1976" by Gladys S, Adams pg 167. In this listing he is buried in the Kellogg Cemetery (also known as the Bassett Cemetery) in Bridgewater, VT. The tomb stone inscription states: "Died Aug. 31, 1839 aged 69 years.
( Directions to this cemetery: From US Rt. 4 approx. 1 mile west of the Bridgewater/Woodstock, VT dividing town line will be found Goldcoast Rd. running north. Approximately 2 miles up the Goldcoast road, this road will take a 90 degree bend to the right. At the bend, by in the left direction will be found an unmarked gravel road. This is actually known as Hill road. Approximately 2 miles up Hill Road and on the right side of the road will be found the Kellogg Cemetery which is located on a step slope. In 2006, this road is considered a private road and not maintained by the town. It is permissible to walk the road to the cemetery by not drive.)
It is assumed he died in or about his home what was located on Hadley Hill in Sherburne, VT Hadley Hill is very very close to the town line of Bridgewater, VT. The Kellogg Cemetery where he is buried is much closer to his home than the main cemetery in Sherburne.
No record can be found of his death in the Town of Sherburne VT. This may be due to a fire ca. 1890 in Sherburne, VT that destroyed all birth, marriage and deaths records between the years 1832 and about 1840.
In 2006 Jean Williams indicates the birth of Humphrey to be Feb. 10, 1771 and Kingston Hadley, ca. 1932 gives his birth date as being Feb. 19, 1771
