Hi Marcy, You are right to look for the source of all information ! There is an Albaugh chapter in an Eichenberry /Eikenbary family history book.I think the name of it is "Pioneers, the descendants of Peter Eichenberg" by Nadine Holder. I think the dates I listed before the Albaughs immigrated came from this book. email email@example.com
The source of some of my information was a newsletter called "The Albaugh Project" by Maurice Neverman.I don't believe it is still being printed. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The book "Pennsylvania German Pioneers" by Ralph Strassburger, Baltimore Gen Publihing Co, 1966 pp 142,143,144,145 has the passenger lists with the ages of the Albaugh immigrants: men's list, Zacharius Ohlbach 36, Johan Wilhelm Ohlbach 28; women's list,Anna Dumat Ohlbach 37, Anna Eliza Ohlbach 26, children's list, Joanis Wilhelm Ohlbach 11, Joanis Gerard Ohlbach 6, Anna Margaret Ohlbach 8, Gerderuth Margreta Ohlbach 2, and Joanis Peter Ohlbach 2.It does not tell which children go with which families.
The book, "More Palatine Families" by Henry Z. Jones is supposed to link Zachariah with the town of Flammersfeld, Westerwald, Germany.The Catholic Church there is supposed to have the records.As I understand it someone hired a professional researcher some time ago. The original record books are still there. I don't think they have ever been filmed. I have never seen a photocopy. Flammersfeld is on a hilltop.Ahlbach is a small community of about eight houses in the valley.
After immigrating they settled in New Jersey first.See "A Genealogical Dictionary of New Jersey" by Charles Gardner. They were in Frederick Co., MD for several years where you can find many records.
