We also have Albers in our family from the Oldenberg/Hanover area, but I don't have any names from that far back. My husband's great grandfather is August Henry Albers who settled in Cleveland and married Josephine Fathauer, also from the same area of Germany. Both born around 1875.
We are also researching an Albers in the Civil War--Gerhard Albers born about 1840--from the same area of Germany, also from Cleveland. Wife's name was Maria. Sound familiar?
