DR. JEREMIAH HAWLEY LEAMING, a representative of the medical profession at the village of Vienna, Ohio, was born February 27, 1869, a son of Henry and Abigail (Beecher) Leaming. The mother was born in Vienna township in 1838 and the father in Hartford in 1829. The paternal grandfather was Isaac and the grandmother Elizabeth (Tucker) Leaming. He came from Massachusetts to Ohio, about 1818, locating in Hartford and becoming a farmer. At an early day he was a distiller. He spent the end of his days on the farm near Hartford. Henry Leaming remained on the farm as long as he was able to perform active duty in such work; he still owns the property, but leases it. He now resides with his daughter, Mrs. James Stewart, in Hartford. The wife and mother, Abigail (Beecher) Leaming, laid down life’s burdens in 1900.
Dr. Jeremiah Hawley Leaming is one of two children born to his parents—Julia, wife of James Stewart, being his sister and the eldest of the two children. Dr. Leaming attended school near Hartford, and later at Hartford Center, graduating from New Lima in 1891. He was admitted to the Mahoning county bar in 1893. He had entered the law office of Congressman James Kennedy, at Youngstown, with whom he remained two years as a clerk and also did collecting for others. Having changed his plan and deciding to enter the medical profession, he entered the Cleveland Medical College at Cleveland, graduated in 1898 and practiced four years at Niles, Ohio, then sold out and located at Vienna, his present home. Politically, Dr. Leaming is an independent Republican, and in church faith, holds to that of the Methodist Episcopal denomination. In fraternal interests he is associated with the Masonic and Maccabees orders, being the examining physician for the latter society.
April 23, 1903, he was united in marriage to Emma Cutler, of Sharpsville, Pennsylvania, born February 17, 1875, a daughter of John and Esther (Hedges) Cutler. The parents came from England early in the seventies, locating in Sharpsville. The father was a carpenter, but after losing an arm, by accident, he engaged in gardening, which he has ever since followed. The wife and mother died December 14, 1897.
