    From Germany to Berks Co., PA, from Amsterdam aboard Johnston Galley 18Sept

    "On September 18, 1732, Johannes and Anna Barbara Albrecht (Albright)migrated from Germany aboard the JOHNSON GALLERY of London [DavidCrockatt, commander] and settled in Berks County, Pa. Their childrenwere Matelina (1716-1784), Barbara (1719-1802), Christian (1726-1784),Jacob (1727-1791), Ludwig (1731-1810), and Judith (1734-?). Two of hesons, Jacob and Ludwig, migrated to Orange County, N.C. about 1763 andsettled along the Alamance and Stinking Quarter Creek. (This area becamea part of Alamance County when the county was founded in 1849). Theirsister, Barbara, and her husband John Foust followed then to OrangeCounty about 1767. ............

    Well, I expect that you will get activity now. Johannes was the
    progenitor of the Albright line that migrated to Old Orange county, NC.At
    least two of his children went there. Probably the earliest genealogy of
    this family was a thesis published in 1900 by Sallie Stockard, a studentof
    the University of North Carolina. Ms. Stockard gave the parents of this
    Johannes as Heinrich and Anna Folsom of NY. This undocumented tracingwas
    carried forward with Augustus Garland Albright's genealogy published in
    1916. Many later genealogies carried this same line. This included one
    published by Claribel Albright McClain in 1941. Ms. McClain realizedthis
    error when Vreeland Leonard published his "The Albright Family of NewYork"
    in 1950. Upon further research Ms. McClain published a supplement to her
    1941 book titled "Additional Findings on North Carolina AlbrightLineage".
    In this book she stated 'This tradition that Hendrick Albright of Albany
    County was the progenitor of the North Carolina Albrights has been provento
    be incorrect.' However, this is a legend that will not die.
    I do not know where Johannes and Anna Barbara originated. All I
    know is that they sailed on the "Pink Johnson" from Rotterdam with David
    Crockatt as Captain. They arrived in Philadelphia, PA on 18 Sep 1732.The
    next day Johannes took the oath of allegiance renouncing allegiance toevery
    foreign sovereignty. Some of Johannes' children made the migration tothe
    area of Orange county, NC along with some other Palatinates - Clapps,
    Fousts, etc.Larry Noah - larmil-1@worldnet.att.net

    From "The Albrights" copyright 1981 TXU 69-571 By: Shannon D. Albright[found at the Ft. Worth Public Library]
    "Three of Johannes Albrecht's children, Jacob, Ludwig, andBarbara, left Berks Co., Pa. for Orange Co., N.C. in the 1760's. Hightaxes and land prices probably prompted their move. They settled in theHaw River plains of northern North Carolina, an area of rich farm land.The Albright's settled along Alamance and Stinking Quarter Creeks. Thispart of Orange Co. was latter divided to form Alamance [1849] andGuilford Counties.
    One of the first church founded was a union of the Lutheran andReformed faiths in SE Guilford Co. near the present site of Laws Churchalong the old road from Hillsboro to Salisbury. In 1813 the congregationconstructed a brick church using local clay. Said to be the first brickchurch in N. C. and used until 1967 when a modern building was built nextdoor. The "Old Brick Church" is located six miles south of Burlington.Records at the church were kept in German until 1813 when the Statedecreed that English be spoken and taught in all public schools!
    Several pioneer Albright's are buried there, including Ludwig andhis wife, Anna Marie [Keller]. The original headstones were in Germanand were replaced with English language in the 1930's.
    Nearby is a colonial brick home now owned by Ruby [Clapp] Pentacost,an Albright descendant. This home was built by Daniel Albright, Ludwig'sgrandson in 1842. Located near a large flat rock, the home is known as"The Flat Rock Daniel Albright Home".
    Nearby is another early German Reformed Church, Stoner's [Steiner's]Church, located at the confluence of the Alamance and Stinking QuarterCreeks. The first elders were Jacob Albright, Peter Sharp, and JohnFoust; husband of Barbara Albright. Jacob and Barbara and their spousesare buried in the Stoner's Cemetery.
    Two miles west of Stoner's Church and five miles south of the cityof Graham is Mount Harmon Church which was established on a tract of landdonated by George Albright, son of Daniel Albright and Catherine Loy.
    Just south of the town of Alamance is the old St. Paul grave yardwhere many Albrights are buried. The cemeteries of the Pleasant HillChristian Church near Snow Camp and the Cane Creek Quaker Church [foundedin 1751] in the same area also contain the graves of many ancestors. Alsothe cemetery of the Buffalo Presbyterian Church founded in 1756 atGreensboro, Guilford County, has many Albright graves of the 18thcentury."

    From John W. Boring <jwb@virginia.edu> September 16,1997
    Larry, In what you sent me about the Albrights you said that yourinformation came from a book written by Shannon Albright. I was able tocontact Mr Albright and ask him the questions that I had about JohannesAlbrecht. Specifically, I wanted to know how he knew the birth date andplace for Johannes and that his wife's maiden name was Gossauer. Hereplied that he had written a supplement to the book in which he saysthat the item: "5 Feb 1732. Johann Albrecht von Oberengstrimgen born 11Feb 1703 in
    Wyninger. Wife Anna Barbara Gossauer von Riesbach, Zurich" must refer toa different person than the one that emigrated to Berks Co in 1732 sincethe oldest child of the PA man, Matalina, was born 1716, too soon for aman born 1703. He also says that the 1790 census for Berks Co, PA showsJohn
    Christian Albright, son of Johannes, as born in Austria. He also pointsout that in the Brick Church cemetery the gravestone of Ludwig, the sonof Johannes, says Ludwig of John of Henry. This seems to indicate thatthe father of Johannes was Henrich or some such. I have seen one databasethat shows the parents of Johannes as Henrich Albrecht and Anna Folsom,but I have not yet checked out the sources for this assignment. Let meknow what you think about all this. John Boring

      The online database of Jon Gary Dean is riddled with errors. 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.
