Looking for information about the parents of my ggg-grandfather, Ralph Albach. He was born in 1815, possibly to John and Sarah (Riley) Albach, in either PA, OH, or NJ. Need information to make a concrete connection. John and Sarah were married in NJ around 1797. I believe John may have been the son of 2 yr old Johanne Peter, from the ship Hope. A guess, really. Have definite connections to James R. Albach from his daughters autograph book to Ralph's son Newton, who signed said book as her cousin.
Ralph's descendants leading to me are as follows:
Ralph Albach and Mary (Haddock) of Dearborn County, IN their son Newton Albach and Anna (Green) of Cincinnati, OH (Newtons siblings were William, Sarah, and Mattie. Only Mattie and Newton survived to adulthood)
Their son Herman Walter Albach married to Francis Olivia, who left him after son Herman Walter Albach, Jr. and his sister Margaret were born. A second marriage produced son Frank Albach.
Their son Herman Walter Albach Jr. and Martha (Wehling) of Cincinnati, OH. They had five children, Olivia and Audrey (both deceased), Catherine, Virginia, and Herman Walter Albach III (all living).
Their son Herman Walter Albach III and Louise (Fester) of Cincinnati, OH. I am the only child of this union.
Their daughter Kimberly Kaye Albach (now Pierce), which is me.
Any help would be very appreciated. I know John and Sarah Albach had an Elizabeth born in NJ in 1797 and an Esther born in OH in 1819, with many unnamed children in between. Please share anything you know! Thanks.
