Nehemiah Shumway was an American composer and compiler of sacred music. He was born in Oxford, Massachusetts, and died in Freehold, New Jersey. The first edition of his compilation of church music, The American Harmony, was published by John M'Culloch of Philadelphia in 1793: this included some original tunes by Shumway and other composers, in addition to music by others previously published elsewhere. A second edition of the book was published by the same publisher in 1801. In addition, other tunes attributed to Shumway were included in William Little and William Smith's collection The Easy Instructor.
