    Notes 
    • According to his profile for age as shown on the 1800-1830 censuses, Joseph would have been born in 1770. On the US census 1830 he is shown with Dr. in front of his name.
      A Joseph Allender was awarded a land grant for his service as a surgeon in the War of 1812.
      On the US Census 1800 Joseph is shown as recently married (in the newspaper of the time the marriage is given as 3 Feb 1800 to Mary Blays daughter of Major Joseph Blays) and already head of the household, and he and his wife are living with a woman past 45, widowed mother of Joseph, and his siblings, sister Mary, age 16-25; Elizabeth sister, age 10-15, brother William, age 10-15, and two children under the age of 10, a boy and a girl (could be children of Joseph, names unknown) and 5 slave.
      By the time of the 1810 Census the household has grown. Besides Joseph and his wife both in the age 26-44 age bracket there is another male age 26-44, and two females, age 26-44, two males age 16-25, and four children under the age of ten, one of which is a girl. This girl, if Fanney, would have to be the youngest. Names of two of the boys is not known, the third would be Walter T. , age 3, with six slaves.
      At the time of the 1820 Census the household still appears multigenerational and excluding Joseph and Mary, its members now range in age: 4 males, 1 under 10, 1 age 10-16 (Walter T.), 1 age 16-26, 1 age 26-45 and 4 females, 1 under 10, 1 age 10-15 (probably Fanney), and 2 age 16-26.
      On the 1830 Census, Joseph and Mary are living with only two males, both age 20-30, one of which could be Walter T. , age 23.
      The nine slaves in 1820 include 3 males age 26-44, 2 males 45 and upwards, 2 females 14-25, and 2 females 45 and upwards; and in 1830 there are six slaves: 1 male under 10, 2 males 10-23, 1 male 50-100, and 2 females 36-54.

      Joseph Allender moved to Baltimore he became a doctor, bought a lot of land in what is now downtown Baltimore, some on Fells Point which was then a ship building area. --Legend / R.E. Allender.

    Family history tells us this portrait was passed down through the family to my father and that it is a portrait of Joseph Tolley Allender 1770-1834.

    Joseph was a well-known physician in Baltimore's Fells Point who married a Mary Biays. Joseph and Mary had six children: Joseph (1800), Elizabeth Ann (1802), Walter Tolley (1807-1886), James Biays (1809), Margareita (1812) and Charles (1815-1875).

    My family tie comes from marriage via Joseph's wife Mary Biays who was the daughter of Colonel Joseph Biays. The Biays and Bowerman (my family) families were closely related from several angles, and it appears that the Allenders in Maryland had a close history and relations with the Bowerman's and Biays' as well.

    Joseph was the son of William (1739) and Sophia Allender, grandson of Joshua Allender (d: 1749) and great-grandson of William Allender (d:1698).

    Joseph's siblings were: Thomas Foley (1764), Mary, Elizabeth, Walter and William.
