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    • The following is from an unpublished manuscript, written by William Barent Wemple II, compiler of the first part if this genealogy from 1885-1913, sent to the compiler on September 28, 2000 by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

      He was born in Brooklyn, NY, April 27, 1856 and inherited his father's trait in his love of study and remarkable memory. He also developed considerable talent for painting and music, neither of which he had an opportunity ot cultivate, for, at his father's death, upon the advise of his uncles James and Evert, the contractors with the Singing Sewing Machine Company, he accepted a situation with them and was engaged in the ornamentation department until at the earnest solicitation of his mother, he entered upon the study of medicine in the New York University, and it may be here said that he seemed to have entered upon the profession for which he was best fitted mentally. Life, through this method of investigation, presented a new phase and each new discovery whether of accident or design, gave to this earnest disciple of the healing art profound gratification. He continued his course at college for three and a half years and graduated with high honors in June 1879.

      In July, 1879, he married Martha Louise Stuart, and in the following October went West, locating in Rushmore, MN. The extreme rigor of that climate proved too severe for his sensitive organization and he was obliged to return East, where, upon the advise of his uncle C. Y. Wemple, he settled in Haverstraw, NY, and soon acquired a large and lucrative practice. He established a reputation for success which in many cases were remarkable. He remained here until warned by failing health and upon the advice of his brother physicians, relinquished his practice and in March 1883, went to Sioux Falls where, in the sunny and invigorating climate of South Dakota, hope for a while lent encouragement to returning health. Improvement was only temporary, for, as summer passed, a severe laryngeal difficulty appeared and as colder weather approached dangerous complications set in which baffled the skill of the best physicians and on the 17 of November 1883, death closed a life of great possibilities and success. He left a wife and two children. The son, a promising boy, is being educated in Trinity School, New York City, ranks high in scholarship and has developed a fine talent for music.
