Cluff was born in Kirtland, Ohio. He was a son of David Cluff and his wife the former ELizabeth Hall. David and Elizabeth had eleven sons and one daughter.

He was a Mormon pioneer and settled in Utah Territory.
In the 1850s Cluff ran a factory that manufactured furniture. Also in the 1850s Cluff was among those who assisted in the rescue of the Martin and Willie Handcart companies.
