Arthur Albright(b:15 Feb 1883, Kankakee Co. IL, d:7 Nov 1963, King Co. WA; f:Theodore Albright(Albrecht), m:Isadore Laycock)
Sometime before 1930, Arthur Albright changed his name to Alvin Charles Osborne. Between about 1900 and 1930 family lore has it he spent time in vaudville, married in MN and had a farm and four daughters. For unknown reasons he abandoned his 1st family and bcame a railroad boomer working all over MN, WI, and IA. In about 1929, as Alvin Charles Osborne, he married Henrietta Lina Roeh in Denison, Crawford Co., IA. With his second wife, he had a son Kenneth Alvin Osborne (b:6 Apr 1930) and a daughter Virginia Mae Osborne (b:3 Jan 1939).
Arthur Albright (aka Alvin Charles Osborne) is my wife's father.I am looking to fill in the "lost years," that is, I would like to find the genealogical information for his first family. Our best guess for the farm is in Benton Co. or Stearns Co. MN.We have no idea when he changed his name or how many times he changed his name.
