  • Notes 
    • The following is from an unpublished manuscript sent to the compiler on September 28, 2000 by Michael Lee Wemple of Bay City, MI. This manuscript was written by William Barent Wemple, compiler of the first part if this genealogy from 1885-1913.

      Born March 12, 1785; died on Amherst Island, Canada, August 13, 1867; married Eleanor Althouse, daughter of ------- Althouse and Lucretia Dusenbury, of Bath, Ontario, who was born July 26, 1808 and died April 24, 1891, on Amherst Island. He is said to have been the first white child born on the site of the present city of Kingston, Canada.

      From the work of Leigh Wemp, who worked on the Wemp branch of the family during the late 1960's:

      He was given the deed to the Big Island written on birch bark by Indians.
