George HEMUS1

(1848 - 1917)
George's birth was registered between January 1848 and March 1848 in Kings Norton, Worcestershire.1
He was listed in the 1851 census at 4 York St in Birmin, Worcestershire, along with his parents Soloman and Mary Ann HEMUS and siblings Leah (11), John (9), Hannah (7), Benjamin (5) and Charles (1). His parents worked as a boot-maker and boot-binder, respectively.2
He was listed in the 1861 census at 30B Hospital St in Birmingham, Warwickshire, with his parents Solomon and Mary HEMUS and extended family consisting of Leah (21, machinist), Hannah (17, machinist), Benjamin (15, a jeweller, as was George), Charles (11), Henry (8), Alfred (6), Joseph (3) and James (1). His parents were still in the shoe-making business.3

He married Frances Harwood KEANE in New Zealand in 1868.4

He had arrived in Auckland with his parents on the Ironsides in Aug 1864 and established a successful boot factory business. He was superintendent of the United Free Methodist Sunday School in Pitt Street, an evangelistic preacher, and was connected with the Good Templars Excelsior Lodge (a temperance association), which led to him becoming an Auckland City Councillor in 1880, representing the Good Templars, and defeating the publican's candidate.

However, after hearing the inspirational preaching of Mrs HAMPSON he decided to sell his business and depart for America (against the protests of his wife). It appears that he actually abandoned his wife and remaining four children, as Mrs HEMUS tracked him down in San Francisco and sued for divorce on the grounds of neglect - which he did not contest, possibly as he wished to marry Mrs HAMPSON. Although no records have been found of the divorce proceedings, the Auckland newspapers reported she was awarded £200 damages and maintenance for the four children, and that she had set herself up running a boarding house in San Francisco, although some reports claimed the family settled in Kansas.

The newspapers also reported Mrs HAMPSON's departure for America in Nov 1884.5,6,7

George's second marriage was to Margaret SPENCER on 29 December 1885 in Los Angeles, California.8 He was naturalised on 27 July 1888 at Los Angeles, California.9

George was living from 1892 to 1896 at Vernon in Los Angeles. His entries in the voter lists said he was 5' 6" with a dark complexion and gray eyes in 1892, but by 1896 he was only 5' 4 1/2" with a medium complexion and brown eyes! His occupation was 'evangelist' and his naturalisation date matches the previous record.10

He was listed in the 1910 US census as head of the family at 717 Kohler St in Los Angeles, California, with his wife Margaret; both claimed to be evangelists within an industry of the 'world'. They were living in a rented home, and claimed to have been married for 24 years with 14 children 5 living - these numbers are clearly their summation of both their original families, not the children they had together (which would be none). They also both claimed to be 65; he claimed to have entered the USA in 1883 and be naturalised, while she gave an entry date of 1885 - these ages are totally inaccurate, as he would have been 62, while she was 73.11

George died on 8 March 1917 in Los Angeles, California.12 He was buried at the Rosedale Cemetery, 1831 West Washington Blvd in Los Angeles. Note that his supposed age of 72 conforms with his claimed age in the 1910 census, where he clearly tried to close the gap on his much older wife.12
