      From the HISTORY OF NORTHEAST INDIANA, page 286

      ELIAS C. WEMPLE has lived since early infancy in LaGrange County, grew up on a farm, adapted agriculture as his mainstay in life, and is now proprietor of a good farm in Johnson Township. He has fared equally well in the esteem of his community, and made a splendid record during the time he served as township trustee.

      Mr. Wemple was born in Schenectady, New York, December 28, 1857, son of John A. and Elizabeth (Strang) Wemple. His parents were natives of New York, and after their marriage came to Indiana, and from that time until their death lived in Clear Springs Township of LaGrange County. Five of their children are still living: Abraham, of Perry Township, Noble County; Angelica, widow of Hiram B. Smith; James, of Wexford County, Michigan; Elijah P. of Topeka, Indiana; and Elias C.

      Elias C. Wemple was eighteen months old when his parents came to LaGrange County, and he grew up here and was educated in the common schools. He lived at home with his parents until he was twenty-eight years old. In 1886 he married Mathilda E. Baugher. She is a native of LaGrange County and made good use of her early advantage in the common schools and the Ontario Normal and for seventeen years was a successful and popular teacher. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Wemple began farming north of Valentine, and in 1890 moved to their present place a half a mile west of that village. Mr. Wemple has 72 1/2 acres devoted to general farming and stock raising.

      He is affiliated with the Knights of Pythias Lodge and also with the Knights of the Maccabees. He is past chancellor and member of the Grand Lodge, and Mrs. Wemple is past chief of the Pythian Sisters. Mr. Wemple was elected to the office of township trustee on the democratic ticket.
