Harpending, Andrew (son of Samuel), born February 24, 1819, has been a resident of Dundee since his birth. He married in 1877, Elida (daughter of Charles Hoyt), born in Reading, Schuyler County, December 17, 1848, by whom he had one son, Andrew, who died in infancy. He kept the old Harpending House from 1846 to 1849. In 1859, after the death of his brother Samuel, he took possession of the Harpending House and kept it until 1880. The house burned March 1, 1861, and the following year he rebuilt it on the site of the original house. He was the first president of the Dundee State Bank, and held that position until 1891, when he resigned on account of failing health. He has been one of the directors of the bank since its organization.
