Charles L. Hemingway

Charles L. Hemingway was born in Pennsylvania on December 12, 1843. He first married Maria Heller (1840-1864) but three years after her death he married her sister, Alice Sibila Heller Eyermann (1844->1930), the widow of Edward Heister Eyermann (1845-1874), and raised Alice's young son, John Eyermann (1867-1945). Charles and Alice had a son of their own, Charles E. Hemingway, born in 1884, but he died young. Hemingway must have been reasonably well off; although he listed his occupation as clerk at a livery stable in the 1880 census, he had a live-in domestic servant as part of his household, and in 1910 is listed as living on his "own income." He served as Northampton County Treasurer in 1894-1896 (Easton City Directory).

Charles L. Hemingway offered his large collection of minerals and rocks—10 tons of low-quality specimens—for sale via an ad in the May 1889 issue of The Exchanger's Monthly.
