  • Notes 
    • From papers sent to the compiler by Michael Lee Wemple of Bay City, MI on July 1, 1999:

      Excerpt article from BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES, HISTORY OF LaGRANGE COUNTY, INDIANA, 1882:

      JOHN A. WEMPLE was born in New York August 14, 1818, and is a son of Abraham and Sophia Wemple, natives of New York, in which State they died. Abraham Wemple, in early life, followed carpentering, but subsequently changed to farming, a portion of the work being allotted to his son, our subject, until he married, July 31, 1840, to Miss Elizabeth Strang, a native of New York, where her mother Eleanor Strang, died. Her father, John Strang, removed to this county, where he died in Perry Township.

      In 1856, after sixteen years of married life in New York, the subject and his wife came to the Hoosier State, and located on eighty acres of their present farm in this township. In 1857, Mr. Wemple returned to New York, purchased some real estate, remained three years, then returned to this township and has remained, engaged and interested in clearing and improving his farm. They have had ten children - Abram H., living in Perry Township; Willard G., in this township; Folly A., in Michigan; Evaline A., in this township; and Elias C.; James and Elijah P., at home. Those deceased are Mary E., Catharine S., and Arville.
