In the 6-10-1870 census of Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland, Maine in household #317, family #350 on page 45...
Hemmings, John, 56y, Male, White, Rolling Mill Employee, Born England.
Hemmings, Annie, 59y, Fem, White, Keeping House, Born England.
Hemmings, Emma, 31y, Fem, White, Born England.
Hemmings, William, 30y, Male, White, Rolling Mill Employee, $150.00 Personal Estate, Born England.
Hemmings, John, 20y, Male, White, Rolling Mill Employee, Born Maine.
In the 1880 census of Cape Elizabeth, Cumberland Maine William states he was born in England, his father born England, his mother born Wales. His wife Barbara states she and her parents were born in Scotland. John Hemmings (born 1817) in William's home said he and his parents were born in England. Here William said he was a peddler and John worked in the rolling mill.
In the 1900 census William states he and both parents were born in England. He was a naturalized citizen sometime after arriving in America in 1869. Here he is an iron worker and his daughter Lizzie is a servant. Both Emma and Lizzie are single in June 1900.
So it's hard to determine exactly where everyone was born when the information changes in the census records. What you have seems to be pretty accurate but conflicts in part with what the Hemmings men said in the census'. I have seen where during a census the people would just make things more convenient by saying they're from the same place where they are actually from different locales.
