MANLEY HEMINGWAY was born January 24, 1836. He served with the union forces during the Civil War and in 1870 the family came to Windsor Township from near Ottumwa, Iowa. Mr. Hemingway was a man of splendid character and ability and was elected County Surveyor in 1871 at the second regular election held in the county. At that date the office of surveyor was a very important one as boundary lines were frequently a matter of controversy and survey. Mr. Hemingway was also one of the early day teachers of Eastern Cowley County. He passed away March 16, 1881.
Mrs. Hemingway was born February 13, 1839. She was a woman of charming personal-ity and well typified the admirable characteristics of the pioneer woman, and contributed of her time and means to many worthwhile projects and was an inspiration to her neighbors and friends. They were the parents of two children: Ida (Hamm), who taught in the schools of Cowley County for many years; and Charles Hemingway, who moved to Mead County, Kansas.
Thomas Hemingway, a bachelor brother of Mr. Manley Hemingway, lived in the home many years.
