Hi Donna, I don't know if there is a connection, but my wife's second great-grandfather was George P. Albrecht, b 1839 in Germany. He was married to Margaret Snedeker in New Orleans La.,on 2-27-1866. According to Census records, he was naturalized abt 1870. They later moved to Indianapolis, Marion Co., Indiana.
I have been unable to find out any sibling or ancestry info for him. Would you know of any connection to your Johann Albrecht?
A helpful hint; Johann is usually a "saint name" and most German males, (particularly in 18th and 19th centuries) went by their "ruft" name. What we commonly think of as a middle name now. An example would be Johann Philip Albrecht. In the example, this individual would go by Philip. If only one name is given for "John" then it is usually Johannes. Johannes will hardly ever be found with a ruft name. My point is that Johann Albrecht may have gone by another (secular) name, that you may have to discover.
Please let me know if you may have a connection. Thank you, Rob firstname.lastname@example.org
