Albright is Alright!

The Albright family has also eluded our efforts.  I have a picture that is supposed to be the father of Quinn and Gus, and we had been told his name was George or George Frank.   However, the recent find of the marriage record shows his name to be J J Albright. 

I have been told that if he was of German heritage, his name could have been George but spelled with a J instead of a G.  The children listed him as being born in New York and South Carolina in separate Census's. 

We have tried to locate descendants of Augustus in hopes to learn of their family in more detail but have not located any yet.

    UPDATE:    Friday 13th was lucky afterall.  I have been able to locate descendants of Augustus and Ruth.  Fannie Ruth Albright lived in California and through her daugher I now have names of other family members to contact.    Perserverance pays!

I have only seen him listed in the city directory one time. He was listed in the Fort Worth, Texas directory in 1890; Dairyman for Hunter, S Union Stock Yard, near Cotton Belt Railway track, but he was not listed prior to or after that date.  We know his wife, Fannie had died prior to that and his children were living with their Eskew grandparents and Uncle John Eskew after her death.  What happened to him, we don't know.
