The Small Family in America by Lauriston Ward Small
p.57
In the autum of 1848, Humphrey, and his brother Major Henry, together with their brother-in-law William Thompson and Mr. Thompson's sons, Henry and Sewell, built a family tomb in what had once been the celler of Henry's second house in Limington, situated a few rods north of his last house, and on a private road leading from the main road to the Thompson house. In consideration of a fifth interest in the tomb, Elmira, widow of Humphrey's brother Joseph, gave the triangular bit of ground of perhaps one-third of an acre upon which the tomb is built. This land has been in the family since 1668, and as it now can never be sold it will remain in the family forever. Amen and amen. Thus the five original owners of the tomb were: 1. Humphrey, 2 Major Henry, 3, Elmira, widow of Joseph, 4. William and Sewall Thompson, and Henry Thompson.
