Samuel, the son of Job and Eunice Albro, was born March 1, 1791 in Berkshire Co., Massachusetts.He married the Sherman sisters, Hannah and Esther, in Oneida Co., New York in 1814 and 1828, respectively.Their children were Jane (b1815), William (b1816), John Walter (b1819), Simeon, David, Henry, George F., and [unknown].
Jane married Simeon Cole in 1834 in Yates Co., New York and died there in 1885.
John Walter, my gggrandfather, married Maria Norton in 1844 in St. Louis, Missouri.They moved to New Orleans, La., had many children, and died there.
William married Judith Ann Edic of Deerfield, Oneida Co.,New York.He had an untimely death in 1845.
George F. was recently discovered in the list at albrojournal and I have been able to track him through later census years. He married Martha.They lived in Whitestown, Oneida Co., and had three children, Sarah (b1855ca), Fannie (b1953ca), and William (b1865ca).William married Ida S. in 1885.They had one son Robert W. (b1892).
So, I’m still searching for Simeon, David, Henry, and [unknown] as well as the living descendents of George F. From an old letter written in 1909, they “went west”.A copy from a dilapidated family record, (missing names), gives the following dates of birth for these children:25 January1825,4 February 1828,10 July 1832, and20 December 1836.I’m hoping there are Albro descendents somewhere looking for their New York born Albro ancestors.
I am equally interested in identifying Samuel Converse Albro’s siblings.I know there is a controversy regarding the spouse(s) and children of Job Albro and Eunice Potter.If you’re interested in reading about this controversy and others, they are at the albrojournal.The rules of this forum seem to prohibit me mentioning the site, despite the fact that it’s free and a must visit for anyone researching an Albro ancestor.But, do visit, then come back here to the forum and post your questions, comments, etc.
There were over 600 individuals bearing the Albro name in the US in 1850.Can you just imagine how many descendents there are today from these Albro forebears!
If you think any one of the above names, or dates, appear to match, or even come close to someone you’ve been searching for, post a reply, or e-mail me directly and let’s talk about it.
