      Louderback, Reuben. Age 49. Residence Monroe, nativity Virginia. Enlisted Oct. 9, 1862, as Wagoner. Mustered Oct. 9, 1862. Discharged for disability Dec. 13, 1863, Alton, Ill. See Company I, Tenth Infantry.

      Permelia Loudenback was still with Reuben and Margaret Earl Loudenback in the 1850 federal census. At that time it indicated she was 15 years of age, which would work out to abt a date of birth of 1835. I do know that the Loudenback family can be found in Shenandoah County, Page County, Rockingham County, Virginia though they probably never moved, just the county lines.

      William Henry Loudenback, a well-known and substantial farmer of the Alquina neighborhood, was born in that vicinity and has lived there all his life. He was born on October 11, 1844, son of Isaac and Charlotte (Hail) Loudenback, both natives of this same section and members of pioneer families.

      Isaac Loudenback was born on a pioneer farm just south of the present village of Alquina on March 12, 1817, son of Philip Loudenback and wife, who came here from Virginia and entered land from the government, establishing their home there and spending the remainder of their lives in the Alquina neighborhood, useful and influential pioneers of that section. On that pioneer farm Isaac Loudenback spent all his life, a life-long farmer. He was an active Democrat and took an earnest part in the political affairs of that part of the county. Isaac Loudenback was thrice married. His first wife, Charlotte Han, was a daughter of Isaac and Abigail (Martin) Han, the latter a native of New Jersey, who came here in an early day. Isaac Han was a driver on the tow-path of the old canal and died of cholera during one of the epidemics of that dread disease which visited this section in the forties. To Isaac and Charlotte (Han) Loudenback were born nine children, of whom the subject of this sketch, the only son, was the second in order of birth, the others being as follow: Mrs. Sarah Ferguson, Mrs. Eliza Melotte, Mary, who died when eight years of age; Maria, who also died in childhood; Martha, who likewise died in her youth; Mrs. Laura Hanna; Alice, wife of Reeder Riggs, and Ada, wife of Edward Newland. The mother of these children died in October, 1864, and Isaac Loudenback later married her sister, Mrs. Martha Hope, which union was without issue. After the death of Mrs. Martha Loudenback, Mr. Loudenback married Elizabeth Brown, who survived him some years and which union also was without issue.

      William H. Loudenback grew to manhood on the old home farm where he was born and there remained until his marriage in 1871, when he established his home on land he had previously bought from his father at the south edge of Alquina and has ever since resided there. He now owns one hundred and fourteen acres of well-improved land and is accounted one of the substantial farmers of that community.

      On February 16, 1871, William H. Loudenback was united in marriage to Catherine Cerene McClure, who was born near Eaton, over in Preble county, Ohio, daughter of John and Catherine (Slonaker) McClure, natives of Maryland, who later became residents of this county, locating at Alquina about 1866. To Mr. and Mrs. Loudenback have been born five children, two of whom died in infancy, the others being Alfred Smith Loudenback, who died when twenty-five years of age; Catherine Cerene, who married Perry Lester Lambert, to which union a child was born, who was killed by the accidental discharge of a gun on December 26, 1914, and Charlotte Frances, who married Charles Crist and has one child, a son, William Alva. Mr. and Mrs. Loudenback are members of the Methodist church. He is a member of the Knights of Pythias and of the Improved Order of Red Men and his wife belongs to the Women's auxiliaries of these orders, the Pythian Sisters and the Pocahontas degree.
