     Fred was a big man, about 6' 6". There is a family photograph in existence in which it looks as though he must be standing on a step, but he isn't. He was just that much taller than the rest. He also moved to near Sabin, Minnesota, and bought a farm there. He married a woman named Mary. They had children. Uncle Fred died relatively young, collapsing on the street one day in Sabin from a heart attack. Frederick was born at home as were all of the Altenbernd children.

FREDERICK W. ALTENBERND
     Frederick W. Altenbernd, a well-known and substantial farmer of the southern part of Clay county and the proprietor of a fine place of four hundred and eight acres in Elmwood township, where he and his family are very comfortably situated, is a native of Kansas, born on a pioneer farm in Douglas county, that state, on January 4, 1871. He is a son of William and Katie (Hill) Altenbernd, natives of Germany, the former of whom came to his country in 1860, he then being twenty-seven years of age, and the latter of whom came to America with her parents when she was eight years of age. Both are now deceased. They were the parents of eight children.
     Reared on the home farm in the neighborhood of Lawrence, Kansas, Frederick W. Altenbernd received his schooling in the public schools of that city and in the business college there. Not long after leaving, he came up here into the Red River country and bought a farm of two hundred and forty acres in Elmwood township, Clay county, and started in to improve and develop the same, establishing his permanent home there after his marriage in 1901. Mr. Altenbernd has done well in his farming operations, and has increased his original holdings until now he is the owner of a fine place of four hundred and eighty acres. He is now regarded as one of the most securely established farmers in that section of the county, his place being well improved and profitably cultivated. In addition to his general farming, he has, of late years, gone somewhat extensively into potato raising and has done well in that line, having discovered, along with many other thoughtful agriculturists hereabout, that potatoes constitute one of the most profitable crops raised in the Red River valley.
     In 1901, Frederick W. Altenbernd was united in marriage to Wilhelmina Schroeder, who was born in Elmwood township, daughter of Henry Schroeder and wife, pioneers of Clay county, further and fitting mention of whom is made elsewhere in this volume, and to this union two children have been born, sons both, Carl and Clarence. Mr. and Mrs. Altenbernd are members of the German Lutheran church and give proper attention to the various beneficences of the same, as well as to the general good works and social affairs of the community in which they live, and are doing well their part in advancing the neighborhood's common welfare.8


     Frederick died on 10 February 1928 in Sabin, Clay County, Minnesota, USA, at age 57.9,10 He was on the tax rolls of in Elmwood, Clay County, Minnesota, USA, in 1933 He was listed as owning 2 cattle.11
