714 Yes, his name was simply N.V. It is said that when N attended college, he had quite a time with a professor convincing him that N.V. was his only and correct name. Claude C. Wemple always referred to him simply as Uncle N.

N.V. Wemple was judge of the Justice Court in Susanville from 1933 until the time of his death. He represented the Second District in the California State Assembly from 1924-1928 and he was Lassen County Assessor for several years before that. He graduated from San Jose State Normal College about 1875.

N.V. hired his brother-in-law, Will Bronson in 1905 to build him a house in Milford. Nearby, N also had Will build a small single room home for his father, Joseph Crawford Wemple. Joseph died in this small home. For several years about 1940-1955, Hazel Wemple, niece of N, used this building for the Milford Post Office. Donald Jay Wemple, grand-nephew of N. lived in N's big house until his death in 1995. As of this writing his widow, Gay is living in this house. DRW

Wemple, member of a pioneer family of Lassen County which is closely connected with the very growth of this section of California, died at the Riverside Hospital last night near 10:30 o'clock. leaving the community saddened with the knowledge that it had lost one of its best known and useful citizens. Wemple, who was nearing his seventy-first birthday, was born in Milford, Lassen County on May 7, 1871, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Crawford Wemple. Joseph was one of the sturdy pioneers who came to Lassen County and aided in developing his adapted town and county.

On August 14, 1892, he and Pearl Bronson were united in marriage. To this happy union were born the following children: Orville E., Guy B., Fred, Lyle E. Maude, Percy N. and Bernice M. Wemple. Wemple was engaged in farming and livestock business until 1903. At that time he was elected to the Assessor's office of Lassen County in which capacity he served for two four-year terms. He retired from public life at the end of the second term and took up ranching at Milford. In 1920 Wemple started the Wemple Lumber and Warehouse Company at Litchfield. It was while in this business that he was elected to the Assembly of the California State Legislature in 1925, serving his county well for two terms. Always active in civic and lodge circles, he was a past master of Janesville Lodge No. 232 of the F. and A. M. (Free and Accepted Masons) and a member of the Knights of Templar. Following his service in the Legislature, he returned to Lassen County and was appointed to the office of Justice of the Peace of Honey Lake Township in 1933. Wemple was still faithfully carrying on his duties in this capacity at the time of his death.
