FEBRUARY 19, 1914


Following service throught the civil war as a regimental surgeon, the Physician remained in the army for several years, and came to Fort Klamath in the early 1880's as Military Surgeon.
Dr. Stacy Hemenway, surgeon at the Yainax sub-agency, is no more. Following an illness of several days duration the aged practioner passed away at 1 o'clock this afternoon.
When he was taken ill several days ago, Dr. Hemenway evidently realized that the end was at hand for he summoned D.V. Kuykendall to his bedside to make his will and attend to other legal matters. For the past two days he has been in a state of coma, from which he did not rally before his death.
Upon receiving the news of the serious illness of the doctor, his brother, Volney Dixon, left a sick bed in Eugene, and accompanied by his son-in-law, W.A. Kuykendall, a Eugene business man, came to Klamath Falls, arriving last night. As the dying man was in a comatose state, and the brother from Eugene was hardly well enough to withstand the rigors of the trip to Yainaix, he did not attempt to reach the bedside. Had he started, he would hardly have reached there in time.
Dr. Hemenway was a native of Indiana, and was 78 years of age. He was a son of Dr. Ansel Asa and Abigail (Whitmore)Hemenway, who after coming to the Willamette Valley in 1853 was a great factor in the state's early political life, and a member of the legislature in 1862.
After finishing high school and studying in the office of his father, Dr. Hemenway attended the Chicago Medical College. He graduated that institution in 1861.
The Civil War broke out just after the young doctor was given his diploma, and he at once gave his services to the Union, enlisting as a surgeon in the Ninth Illinois cavalary. During the war this regiment saw much active service. At the close of the war the doctor had attained the rank of regimental surgeon.
After the war the doctor served at different times in the army medical service, and intermittently he was with the Indian service, adminstering to the sick Reds with much more effective results than their medicine men.
Early in the 1880's Dr. Hemenway came to Klamath county, first as an army surgeon at Fort Klamath. After resigning from that post he practiced his profession in Klamath Falls and Bonanza. In 1889 he re-entered the Indian service with Captain O.C. Applegate, and since that time has been the physician at Yainax.
In his residence in Klamath county the old practicioner made a wide circle of friends. He was beloved by whites and Indians alike. In adition to his wife Angeline, he is survived by three brothers, Volney, Ansel and Frank, all of whom reside at Eugene.
The remains will be brought to this city, and will be shipped to Eugene for interment in the family plot at Oak Hill cemetery.
