  • Notes 
    • The following file was submitted by William Westbrook Wemple, Jr. on April 28, 1996. Quoting William, I'm sending you another file of Wemple miscellany that I picked up during my Sacramento research. As you can see it involves a land dispute, and is not especially flattering to the Wemples.

      Cornelius Wemple, deceased: Petition of Jane Wemple, verified by her affidavit. Citation, issued to William Wemple, the tenant in possession of the land, requiring him to show cause why petition should not be granted.

      To Charles Eaton, William Rob and John M. Hubbs: Whereas Jane Wemple, widow of Cornelius Wemple, late of the town of Florida, Montgomery County, deceased. By her petition filed in this office set forth that she was legally married to the said Cornelius Wemple, in his lifetime and that before his death he seized of a certain lot of land in the town of Florida, Montgomery County and described in a deed bearing the date of June 3, 11807 executed by John Freeland to said Cornelius Wemple a lot, #19, in a certain partition made by John R. Bleeker, Esquire of a tract of 2000 acres of land granted to Anne Wilmont by his late majesties Letters Patent, dated August 27,1735 lying in the County of Montgomery, on the south side of the Mohawk River. Description of the boundaries follows: Containing 99 acres on one rod of land, more or less, and that possession of said lands and as William Wemple is ordered to show cause why said Dower should not be admeasured, appeared but offered no cause. Therefore you the said Charles Easton, William Rob and John M. Hubbs are ordered to admeasure the one third part of the lands which Cornelius Wemple, died, seized of, and are required to make a full report of your proceedings. Registered August 8,1826.

      Vital Records from Surrogates Office [p. 170?], as quoted in Tree Talks, Vol. 13, No. 3, September 1973, p. 41.

      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 about 1766. Married Jane Vreeland, at Caughnawaga, February 19, 1797. He was married, secondly, to Jane Bradt, September 17, 1816, in Schenectady. No children were born of the second marriage.

      He owned and lived upon a farm situated about four miles from the city of Amsterdam, in the easterly part of the Town of Florida, and about one mile from the Erie Canal, on the range of hills overlooking the Mohawk Valley.
