About Moses Humphrey
Moses Humphrey was the son of Moses Leavitt and Sarah (Lincoln). Humphrey was born in Hingham, Mass., October 20, 1807, and died in Concord, N. H., August 20, 1901. He was a businessman, elected Mayor of Concord, N.H. in 1861 & 1865, state representative, and President of the N.H. Board of Agriculture, largely responsible for the introduction of both horse-drawn and electric streetcars into the city of Concord. A fairly comprehensive biography and photograph of Humphrey is available in the Proceedings of the New Hampshire Historical Society, Vol. 4, pg. 272-273 (Jan. 1906), available as a PDF from GoogleBooks.
