Biographical Sketch

Daniel Hemenway was born on January 30, 1800 in Conway, Franklin County, Massachusetts to Daniel and Hannah (Collier) Hemenway. Prior to settling in New London Township, Huron County, Ohio he married Marinda (Mirinda) Bradley.  The couple had six children; Joseph, Truman, Charles, Manning, Nancy and Collier.  Census records indicate that Daniel worked as a carpenter.  He also served as the New London Township Justice of the Peace from the mid-1830s to the late-1840s, although the exact time span has not been determined.  Daniel Hemenway died on January 7, 1871 in New London Township at the age of 70.

           

Scope and Content

The collection spans the years from 1831 – 1866, however the bulk of the material is dated from 1837 – 1842. Daniel Hemenway’s Justice of the Peace records include court summons, promissory notes, court case judgements, accounts and invoices.  Of particular interest are Regiment Court of Appeals records from the 11th Division of the Ohio Militia.  Also included are minimal New London Township School District #7 records from the 1830s – 1840s.  The personal correspondence of Daniel Hemenway and his family completes the collection.
