His father, Frederick Alenduff, was born near Cincinnati, and lost his father, who was killed by the Indians when he was ten months old.

This family arrived in Davis township November 2, 1827, and his father entered the eighty and erected his cabin where the subject of this notice lives, on Sec. 5,
T. 21, R. 6. He next entered eighty acres of timber and eighty acres of prairie, then he and an uncle together entered eighty acres of timber. Deer and turkeys were plentiful, and the two first years these people depended on the rifle for their meat. A few Indians might yet be seen, and lodge-poles were left sticking in the ground, and indicated where th main body of them had wintered. These were within a stone's throw of Mr. Alenduff's door-yard. Mr. Alenduff was married August 19, 1849, to Maria Emperley, who was born October 26, 1829. Nine children have been born to them: Elizabeth, October 10, 1850; Mary Jane, December 8, 1851 (wife of William D. Lake, of Warren county); Frederick M., April 25, 1854, died January 6, 1878; John E., February 18, 1856; Annie, April 23, 1860 (wife of Hosea Thompson); William M., June 24, 1862; Ella, May 26, 1865; Marion, October 22, 1868, and Eddie, February 16, 1876.
