I have a deed for 8 acres of land in Philadelphia, PA which belonged originally to Ricloff Alberson, being sold by his descendants to Solomon Sharpe CHESTER and wife Ruth E. (Leeds) on Dec. 13th, 1836.Before Ricloff Alberson, the deed says the land was owned by Britton Bishop and his wife Johannah.
I know Ricloff Alberson was a sea captain per a google search, but I can find nothing on his wife and children.
One son must be: Gilbert Alberson who was married to a Sarah.
Others mentioned in the document are: Susan Clark widow, possibly widow of Ricloff Susanna Edwards widow Elizabeth Bagge widow
Also witnessing: Wm Alberson John Bagge
Signed by Gilbert Alberson Sarah Alberson Susan Clark Susanna Edwards, mark Elizabeth Bagge
