Hi Sharen, Thank you for your e-mail and the info contained therein.
You answered many questions for me and confirmed an important fact that John Lewis Albritton's father (McGibbon Floyd Albritton) was borned in North Carolina and not in Georgia.I had found similiar data concering my ggf McGibbon Floyd Albritton that he was born in NC.
My wife and I recently made a trip to Georgia and visited the Andersonville National Cem. in Sumter Co. and the library in Americus, Ga.
I have seen Census Records where McGibbon's name was spelled McGilbra.I don't have a clue as to why his name was McGibbon F. Albritton in the 1840 Census and was McGilbra F. Albritton in the 1850 Cencus in Sumter Co. GA.
