This former citizen of Hadley Township, Lapeer County, whose loss has been so deeply felt among all who knew him, was born in Chili, N.Y., in 1819, and is the son of James Hemingway, whose biographical sketch is to be found elsewhere in this Record. Our subject settled on section 24, in this township, and developed a fine farm of two hundred and forty acres, making of it a most prosperous and handsome piece of property.
The union of Sarah Dexter and our subject, occurred in 1839. This lady was born in New York, and is the daughter of Silas Dexter. Five children were born to this union, namely: Amanda, deceased; John M., a resident of Hampton, Iowa, and a prominent lawyer there; Ruth D., the wife of Judge J. W. McKenzie, of Hampton, Iowa; James H., who died young; and S. Dexter, who resides on the old home place. During Mr. Hemingways residence in this country, he filled many offices of trust and responsibility, and was a man respected by all. He was for some time Supervisor, Town Clerk, and Justice of the Peace, whose latter office he filed for several years.
S. Dexter Hemingway, the youngest son of our subject, grew to maturity here in this township, and in 1878 was married in his twenty-first year to Miss Lucy, daughter of Robert Hutton, whose sketch appears elsewhere in this volume. They reside upon the old homestead and have a family of five children living, namely: John M., Kate R., Grace C., George Hutton, and Sarah Dexter. The grandfather of these children was called from earth, May 25, 1883, and to all of the circle his death was a great lost, as both young and old looked to him for counsel and direction.
James H. Hemingway. Our subject located at Hadley, Lapeer County, is a dealer in Agricultural implements and from his well-selected stock may be had the latest inventions and improvements upon implements which are used in agricultural business. Mr. Hemingway was born in Chili, Monroe County, N.Y., August 26, 1822. He was the youngest of six children, whose names are as follows: Elmira, William, George, John, and Hannah. The eldest sister became the wife of Reuben Emery and was the mother of three bright children, all of whom graduated at the University in Ann Arbor. William came to Lapeer County in 1836 and was a prominent lawyer here until his death. A full history of the career of George may be found in the sketch elsewhere in this work, headed George S. Hemingway. John came to Michigan in 1839 and resided here until his death in 1885. Hannah became the wife of Thomas Babcock, of Hadley, but now resides in Iowa.
The parents of these children were James and Phebe (Hart) Hemingway. They were born about 1792. The father was a native of Connecticut, but resided in New York until 1842 when he came to Hadley and here resided until the time of his death. He served in the Genesee Conference of New York in the Methodist Episcopal Church and from 1834 to 1842 was Presiding Elder. He preached the first sermon delivered in Hadley Township in 1836, and every resident of the township, men, women and children, in all numbering about fifteen people were present.
Our subjects grandsire was Isaac Hemingway, who is doubtless of English ancestry. He of whom we write received a liberal education in his native State, having been a student of Lima Institute. After coming here he followed teaching for several years in which he had previously engaged and had been assured of his success in New York.
Our subject was married in January, 1847 to Miss Lucina, daughter of Joseph Flint who died October 7, 1889. Unto them were born five children, whose names are as follows: Charles, Millard F., Viola, Grata and Cassius. Millard is now a resident of Lapeer and connected with his father in business; Viola is the wife of Edward Hodgson, of Hadley; Greta is the wife of John A. Morton, a hardware merchant of Hadley; and Cassius who married Kitty Shotwell lives at home.
For forty-six years Mr. Hemingway followed the calling of a farmer and was very successful in it, as indeed it could not well be otherwise, as he gave the most constant and intelligent attention to his work. In about 1861 he began handling machinery and became an agent for the manufacturers and has continued this business in connection with his farming interests. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and has held a number of official positions. He was originally an old-line Whig, but since the organization of the Republican party has joined its ranks. He has held every office within the gift of the people of Hadley Township except those of Highway Commissioner and Treasurer. He is now Justice of the Peace and at the expiration of his present term will have served sixteen years in this capacity. Socially he is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons but has been identified with various other secret societies. C
