  • Notes 
    • The following obituary was sent to the compiler via email by Carol Keane on June 23, 1999:

      James V. Wemple

      The death of James V. Wemple , at his home in Duanesburgh at one o'clock yesterday morning, removed from this life one of the oldest and most honored citizens, not only of the town where he lived, but also of the county.

      The cause of death was a general breakdown. Mr. Wemple had not suffered from illness or pain of any kind, but about three months ago his health began to fail. Mr. Wemple was born in Duanesburgh within one mile of the house in which he died, on December 7, 1820. He loved nature and the peace and quiet of the country, so, after the death of his father he bought out the other heirs to the homestead and adjacent farms and worked them with intelligence and thrift.

      In 1857 he married Miss Kaley, a daughter of Joseph Kaley of Princetown. The first child, a son, Abram, died at the age of 10 years. The other children, who with his wife survive him, are W. W. Wemple, district attorney; Rebecca, the wife of Robert A. Little, of Duanesburgh, J. Kaley Wemple, of Duanesburgh, Henry J. of Guilderland; Rev. Jerry Y. Wemple, pastor of the Ballston Centre Presbyterian church and John A. Wemple, of the Schenectady Savings Bank, who is the youngest.

      Mr. Wemple was for many years an officer of the Dutch Reformed church in Duanesburgh. He was a man of few words and few promises, but when he made a promise it was always fulfilled to the letter. The community in which he lived feels his death has removed a just man and a faithful fried. For several years Mr. Wemple had taken no part in active life. The funeral will take place Friday afternoon at one o' clock.

      The following was written at the bottom of the clipping:
      Jan 20 1900 from Sat. Globe (Utica) Schenectady Ed.
