Abstract: The Harry A. Pempin family of Euclid, Ohio, descends from Henry and Fannie Pempin, Swiss immigrants. By 1880, they had settled in Euclid, where they farmed. Their son, Harry A. Pempin, worked as a steward and lived in Corry, Pennsylvania for a while. The collection consists of a sailors' payroll book, an autograph book, two marriage announcements, a memo to the members of the Cleveland Van Operators and Warehouse Association, one letter written to Pempin's niece, Grace Wilde, and an inventory of the estate of Edith J. Smith of Washington, D.C. The sailors' payroll book was owned by Carl F. Mingenback, a friend of Harry Pempin.
