Note: The online database of Jon Gary Dean is riddled with errors
Note continued: . I made the unfortunate mistake of importing it in its entirety early on in my genealogy research. It is a mistake I have regretted since then. Much of the information from Jon Gary Dean's database is correct, but the errors make it difficult to sift through sometimes and can be a source of aggravation. Births after the death of a parent. Merged individuals that were NOT the same person have combined families that shouldn't be connected. Plus some duplicates with alternate spellings make it very difficult to fix. I have elected not to remove the data because much of it is valid, and eventually as we weed through the errors they will all be fixed. Please understand this, and make sure you research the data yourself before you accept it as fact.

Note: JOHNSON K. ALBRIGHT Page 421 After years of active labor as an agriculturist, this worthy citizen oftwin township, Darke county, is now living a retired life. He belongs toan honored pioneer family of this state, and traces his ancestry back tothree brothers who came to America from Germany prior to the Revolutionary war. One settled in North Carolina and one in Pennsylvania, but all trace of the third has been lost. It was from thefirst that our subject is descended. He served all through theRevolutionary war. His son, Philip Albright, the grandfather of our subject, was born and reared in Orange county, North Carolina, and in early life learned the tailor's trade. Some time previous to 1804 he and his wife Christina came to Preble county, Ohio, and he entered land on the present site of Lewisburg, where he erected a primitive log cabin and followed farming throughout the remainder of his life. He died November 20, 1820, his wife, December 29, 1817, and both were buried at Lewisburg. Of their children John died in Arkansas; Catherine, the wife of John Thomas, died in Preble county, this state; Elizabeth, the wife of Daniel Sharp, died in Twin township Darke county; Barbara, the wife of Lewis Thomas, died in Preble county; Philip died in Twin township, Darke county; Adam died in the same township; Mary, the wife of Philip Nation, died in Eaton, Ohio; Jonas also died in Eaton; and Simpson, the father of our subject, died in Arcanum. Simpson Albright was born in Lewisburg, November 2 1804, and received only a limited education. He was an excellent reader but had little knowledge of other branches of study. As his father was lame and in limited circumstances most of the farm work fell to his sons, and when he died the family were left poor. Simpson was only thirteen years of age at that time and was forced to earn his own livelihood by working as a farm hand, being thus employed until his marriage. He drifted to Anderson county, Tennessee, where he met Miss Mary Snoderly, who became his wife November 9, 1828. She was born in Guilford county, North Carolina, November 1, 1808, and was a daughter of Philip and Mary (Thomas) Snoderly, who moved to Tennessee about 1816. JOHNSON K. ALBRIGHT Page 422 After his marriage Mr. Albright continued to make his home in that state until August, 1832, when he returned to Ohio and located in the northeast corner of Preble county. The following spring he rented a farm in Preble county, where he resided two years, and during that time bought eighty acres of wild land in Twin township, this county. At that time no improvements had been made and there were but few families in the neighborhood. Philip Mullenix had squatted near the Albright farm and built a house, but William Nealeigh, of Lewisburg, had paid him a small sum for his right to the tract and entered the land. The property Mr. Albright rented until he could clear a small tract of his own land and erect a cabin thereon, which was accomplished in April, 1836. The house, which was sixteen by twenty feet, was built of round logs and contained but one room. He cleared his land and transformed it into a beautiful farm, finally selling it, after his children were grown, for one hundred dollars per acre. He then moved to Arcanum and lived retired until his death, which occurred May 17, 1886. His wife died November 7, 1883. They were leading members of the United Brethren church of Arcanum, and were very charitably disposed, their home being a refuge for the poor and needy. In early life the father was a Democrat, but in 1854 severed his connection with that party and later became an ardent Republican. Our subject is the oldest in a family of eleven children, the others being as follows: Henry M., born in Anderson county, Tennessee, December 29, 1830, married Elizabeth Eichelberger. He was a member of Company A, One Hundred and Fifty-second Ohio Volunteer Infantry, in the one-hundred-day service during the civil war, and was a farmer of Van Buren township, Darke county, Ohio, where he died August 24, 1878. Henderson L., born in Tennessee, February 19, 1832, married Catherine Leedy. He was a member of the same regiment as his brother, and now resides on a farm in Neave township, this county. Daniel S., who was born in Preble county, this state, October 6, 1834, married Elizabeth Leedy. He, too, was a member of Company A, One Hundred and Fifty-second Regiment, and is now living in Arcanum. Philip S., born in Twin township, Darke county, in 1836, married first Malinda Raines and secondly Nancy____________, and is now a farmer of Greenville township, this county. He served for three years in the One Hundred and Tenth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and then veteranized, remaining in the service until hostilities ceased. William K., born in Twin township, March 22, 1838, married Nancy Clark, and resides in Greenville. He enlisted first for nine months in the Eighty-seventh Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and afterbeing discharged joined Company B, One Hundred and Tenth Regiment, serving until the close of the war. Adam C., born in Twin township, November 21, 1842, married Nancy Robeson and now lives in Adams county, Nebraska. He served through the war as a member of the Thirty-fourth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. Catherine S., born in Twin township, November 24, 1843, married Anderson Tillman, and died in Arcanum. Sarah Ann, born in Twin township, February 13, 1845, married George F. Hapner and resides in Arcanum. Elizabeth, born in Twin township, August 13, 1848, married Dr. Royalston Ford, of Greenville, Ohio, and died in Arcanum. Margaret Minerva, born in Twin township, January 21, 1856, died in infancy. JOHNSON K. ALBRIGHT Page 423 Johnson K. Albright was born in Anderson county, Tennessee, Jun 13,1829, and was only three years old when brought by his parents to Ohio. He received his education, as he says, �in the woods.� He attended school when he was not needed at home; was fond of study and spent much time with his books. He qualified himself for a teacher, received a certificate from the county examiners and taught one year. He passed through all the different phases of pioneer life. Being the oldest son the responsibilities of the farm work fell upon him at an early age, as his father was not strong, and he did much of his father�s business until leaving home. On the 11th of September, 1851, at Phillipsburg, Montgomery county, Ohio, Mr. Albright was united in marriage with Miss Mary Ann Reichard, who was born in Pyrmont, that county, December 8, 1834, a daughter of John and Elizabeth (Winicke) Reichard. Two children were born to them, but Edward Henry, born September 28, 1853, died April 6, 1854; and Granville Moorey, born May 15, 1859, died May 3, 1870. Mrs. Albright died September 21, 1897, and was laid to rest in Abbottsville cemetery. She was a devout member of the United Brethren church, possessed a beautiful disposition and was a loving wife and mother. After his marriage, Mr. Albright remained with his father until the following December and then moved to his present farm of eighty acres, which he purchased November 3, 1851. His first home here was a hewed-log house, 18x20 feet, but he and his wife were very happy in their humble abode, and in 1876 he built his present beautiful home of red brick. When the civil war broke out he was operating a saw-mill, and was engaged in that business for three years. He also owned and operated a threshing machine for the same length of time. The first school house erected in the north precinct of Twin township was built on a corner of his farm, it being of round logs and about 12x20 feet in dimension. The first teacher was William McGriff, who taught the first year in an old log cabin which was built by Alfred Ayers and stood on what is now the Aaron Wellbau place. Mr. Albright was also one of the �boys in blue� during the war of the Rebellion, enlisting May 2, 1864, in the one-hundred-day service, as a private in Company A, One Hundred and Fifty-second Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The regiment was continually on the march, and participated in Hunter�s raid. Mr. Albright was discharged at Camp Dennison, Ohio, September 2, 1864, and is now an honored member of Rosser Post, G.A.R., at Arcanum, of which he has been the commander two years. He cast his first presidential vote for Franklin Pierce, in 1852, and is now a stanch supporter of the Republican party. Quiet and unassuming, he has the confidence and respect of all who know him, and justly merits the high regard in which he is held. Hope you can use this info and enjoyed the reading! There is an article on Peter Albright, says his great-grandfather was George Albright, a native of Germany, who settled in Berks county, Pennsylvania, and his grandfather, Jacob Albright was from there. His father Peter Albright moved to Cumberland county, Penn. Mary Wrenn Ellis <email@example.com>
