Birth: Sep. 23, 1857
Death: Mar. 28, 1914

Death of C.F.Hemenway: News reached the city of the sudden and tragic death of Mr.C.F.Hemenway, merchant, planter and postmaster at Wheatley. He had been quite indisposed and was stricken with cramp colic. Having no other remedy at hand at just that time and being in such acute pain, and it was convenient, he is said to have taken a dose of laudnam to relieve his terrible sufferings, and by some means took an overdose from which he died the following day. Last Saturday an item in the Scimitar of Memphis, stated that he had committed suicide. We have seen Mr.F.C.Neeley and others, from Wheatley, and we understand this is a mistake. At least we are informed that the family and many friends and citizens of Wheatley do not believe he took the medicine with suicidal intent, and there is nothing about his life or the circumstances of his death to lead one to such belief. Mr.Hemenway has been a citizen of Wheatley about 25 years, and was identified with every enterprise of that little city. He is survived by his widow, and three daughters: Mrs.Ben Lewis, of Forrest City, Grace of Marvell, and Agnes, four sons: Charles, Lester, Algernon, and Frank of Wheatley. The writer knew deceased very well, he was a republican in national politics, but affiliated with the local democracy. He was full of energy and business. The firm of Henenway Bros., of Wheatley, was for many years considered one of the strongest in the county, but successive crop faliures and other unfortunate misfortunes led them into failure a few years ago.
