Birth: Mar. 31, 1873
Lassen County
California, USA
Death: Apr. 13, 1940
Lassen County
California, USA

Noteworthy among those industrious, energetic and prosperous young agriculturists of Lassen county who have spent their entire lives within its limits, being to the manner born and bred, is Jay C. Wemple, a son of Joseph Crawford and Eliza J. (Christie) Wemple, pioneers of this part of the state. Further parental and ancestral history may be found in a sketch of his father, on another page of this volume.

A native of Milford, J. C. Wemple was born on the home farm, March 31, 1873, and in common with his brothers and sister was educated, principally, in the district school. As soon as old enough to be of use he began working on the ranch, and has since been actively engaged in agricultural labor. In his chosen vocation he has been exceedingly successful, his practical and systematic methods, excellent judgment, and skill in his operations gaining for him satisfactory results. His farm, lying northeast of Milford, is under a fine state of cultivation, bearing visible evidence of the skill and wisdom with which it is managed.

February 17, 1894, Mr. Wemple married Elizabeth Decious, a daughter of Irvin Decious, of Modoc county, and into their pleasant home five children have been born, namely: Claude, Olga, Hazel, Irvin, and Margel. In politics Mr. Wemple is a sound Democrat, uniformly casting his vote in support of the principles of that party, and is a member of Honey Lake Parlor No. 198, N. S. G. W., of Janesville, Cal. Mrs. Wemple is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
