 From the Portrait and Biographical Record of Sheboygan County, Wis., 1898:

Albert Mahlendorf, Page 580


ALBERT MAHLENDORF, a sell-known druggist and citizen of Sheboygan, has been a resident of this city since 1855, and is a son of Albert Mahlendorf, Sr.  The latter was born in Prussia, Germany, about 1818.  His earlier years were passed in the city of Berlin, where he also engaged in business.  He received a liberal education, and married Miss Francisca Reichel, also a native of Prussia, Germany.  Soon after their marriage they came to the United States and located at Buffalo, N. Y.  Mr. Mahlendorf engaged in the grocery business, but afterward came to Sheboygan.  Several years later he was elected Register of Deeds for Sheboygan County, and served efficiently in that capacity for two terms.  Mr. and Mrs. Mahlendorf became the parents of six children, three sons and three daughters, of whom Albert is the eldest.

    Mr. Mahlendorf, Jr., was born in Buffalo, N. Y., April 19, 1848, having been about seven years of age when he came with his parents to Sheboygan.  He was educated in the schools of this city, and became a druggist's clerk in the store of Hon. T. M. Blackstock, with whom he remained seven years.  He then went to Chicago, and for two years more applied himself to learning the drug business.  Returning to the Evergreen City, he and his father engaged in that business in 1870.  In 1879, the death of the father occurred, following which the business was discontinued for a while, when our subject re-engaged in the business.  His fine store is now located at No. 627 Eighth Street, his mother being associated with him in business.

    The surviving members of the family are two sons and two daughters.  As already stated, Albert is the eldest of the family; the second in order of birth is Mary, wife of Louis Kalk, a commercial traveler for James H. Walker & Co., of Chicago; Emma is the wife of Louis Mayer, an assistant in the store of Mr. Mahlendorf; Louis is a tinner by trade; Otto died in childhood, and Anna after attaining mature years.

    Albert and his mother reside at their pleasant home in Sheboygan.  Albert Mahlendorf, Sr., was a well-educated man, and a man of more than ordinary attainments.  As a citizen he was highly esteemed, and possessed the confidence and respect of all who knew him.
