A matted portrait of Mary Ellen (Ward) Hemphill.

Mary Ellen Ward was born April 7, 1837 and grew up in Johnson County, Iowa. In 1845, her father Chauncey Ward took in a sick pioneer by the name of Joseph Kimbal Hemphill to convalesce. Eight years later, on August 14, 1853, she and Joseph married. Together, they had seven children: Lucy H. (b. 1855), Frank (b. 1857), Effie H. (b. 1859), Adeline (b. 1863), Joseph Brown "Bud" (b. 1865), Arch W. (b. 1875), and Ray Clymer (b. 1877). All children were born in Joseph and Mary's log cabin.

Mary Ellen died on February 7, 1927 at the age of 90 (Lovetinsky et al., p. 105-106).
