According to Mormon Church records Hendrick Wemple was born at Fonda,
Montgomery County, N.Y., 7 Sep 1775, but according to the gravestone at the
Wellman Cemetery in Ashville, on 15 Apr 1772.
As a young man in his twenties, he took part in the laying out of the
Holland Purchase in western New York. According to records of the library of
the Holland Purchase Museum in Batavia, N.Y., being assigned to the commissary
as records show. (Not probably one of the principal engineers, as recollected
by John J. Wemple, his grandson.)
According to family information, his wife, Lydia Lord, came from French
parentage, possibly from New York State. Holland Purchase records show Henry
Wemple took up residence at Ashville around 1820. However, Mormon records show
all his children born at Ashville, commencing with the first, whose birthdate
was 26 May 1801. So it is presumed the year was likely 1800 or earlier. At
any rate, he was one of the early settlers in the area of Ashville, N.Y. And
here he raised a family of fifteen children.
A sister of Henry's wife Lydia, according to family tradition, married one
Wellman who owned a service sword. This sword passed down in the Wemple family
through John J. Wemple, brother of Elliott Kidder Wemple, and now in possession
of Robert A. Spencer. Apparently a family connection exists between his name
Wellman, and the Wellman cemetery in which Henry and Lydia are buried in
Ashville. A number of Henry's children are also buried in that cemetery.
