Hi All, I'm searching for information on the descendents of this James Albin (b. 1755) to William Bruce Albin and Malinda Godfrey (or Magdalena Shepler).He married several times to Sally Morris, Sally Anderson, unknown Tyson, Margaret Powell (18 May 1828, Gallatin Co., IL), and Margaret "Peggy" Ann May (14 Dec 1840, Jo Daviess Co., IL).He died in Elizabeth, Jo Daviess Co. on 17 Oct 1865.
I have 6 children listed:Allen Henderson (abt 1812), Selestiana (abt 1814), Sarah "Sally" (23 Oct 1816), Nancy Ann (1 Jan 1820/21), Rena, and Caroline.
Allen married Dorinda Niver on 16 Dec 1832 in Gallatin Co.Selestiana married Benjamin Sanders on 12 Mar 1832 in Gallatin Co.Sarah married William Bartlett on 5 Jun 1834 in Gallatin Co. They had a daughter Myra.Rena married a Geppner.Caroline married a Pratt and had children: Will and June.
Sarah died 3 May 1839 in Jo Daviess Co.Myra was left an orphan (I don't have more info on William) and was raised by the Caldwells.She never married.
My husband descends from Nancy Ann Albin.She married Samuel K. Caldwell (b. abt 1 Jul 1816, Kentucky) on 6 Feb 1838 in Gallatin Co.They had 7 children:Ellen, Joe, Mary, Martha, Emma, George, and Samuel.
Here, I'll continue from Martha, although I'm finding more information on the others.She was born Jan 1855.She married William J. Rogers on 11 Dec 1872 in Jo Daviess Co.They had (at least) the following children:Kittie (1873/4, IL), Samuel (1875/6, IL), Elzadia "Elsie" (Nov 1879, Turner Co., SD), Hazel Edith (10 Jul 1888, Lyons, Clinton, IA), and Florence (Jun 1896, IA).
Hazel graduated from Lyons High School in 1906 and married Cleveland Peterson. They had 6 sons:Rogers Cle (1910, IA), James Walter (1911, MO), Delbert Peter (1913, MO), George Albin, Earl Lourde, and Samuel Edwin.
Ok, there's a lot of info.Does anyone have a connection?I've yet to find anyone from James' line.
