    • Notes from THE HISTORY OF SCHENECTADY DURING THE REVOLUTION, Individual Service Records:

      Wemple, John: Born at Fort Hunter, October 15, 1949. He was living in Schenectady in 1755 when he enrolled under Captain John Mynderse, 2nd Albany Count Militia. In January, 1776, he took part in the expedition to Johnstown. In the fall of 1776 he served at Skeenesborough and Fort Ann for the purpose of guarding boats. In the spring of 1777 he went to Jessup's Patent in pursuit of Tories. He served five months during the campaign against Burgoyne, taking part in the battle of Snookkill. He was at Ballston in 1780 when it was burned and at Warren's bush in 1781 under Colonel Willet. He performed considerable guard and garrison duty at Fort Plain, Fort Plank, Fort Paris and at the Schoharie Forts. A pensioner under the Act of June 7, 1832.


      The following is from a 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. The manuscript was never published.


      He was born in May 1749. Married Maria Swits, for which a bond was executed February 23, 1771, and it speaks of him as being a tailor. He made his will June 4, 1827, which is on file in the Schenectady County Surrogate's office, and (he) died May 5, 1836, aged 86 years.

      He enlisted as a private in the regiment of Colonel Abraham Wemple at the breaking out of the Revolutionary War and before its close was promoted to sergeant.

      Maria, his wife, was baptized April 4, 1752, and made her will September 27, 1779, it also being filed in Schenectady County.
