I am trying to identify John Albro in Williamstown MA in 1810, and his wife.The census index will not show him there that year. He was missed evidently by the indexer, but you can find him in the actual census page 135.
The family censused in 1810 included one male over 45, one female btw 10 and 16, one female btw 26 and 45.
This is clearly the John Albro of Williamstown MA who married Hannah Thomas of Pownal VT in Pownal VT, Jan 14, 1808.
I am guessing he was a close relative of Martin Albro of Pownal VT.Pownal and Williamstown are contiguous towns, albeit across the border.It makes sense that the only Albro in Williamstown may be related to the only Albro in the next town.Since Martin Albro b. 1752 can be traced to RI, this should point to John's background also.
Based on John's age, it follows that the marriage to Hannah Thomas was a second marriage, or at least a marriage in mature years.
I believe that Hannah Thomas was the widow of Joel Thomas, b. 1748 CT, who resided in 1790 in Bennington VT (next town to Pownal).Not much is known about Hannah, except that she was listed as the mother of Fina Thomas, b. 1792 in Bennington, a daughter of Joel Thomas.IF she was the mother of all of Joel Thomas's children, as I think she was, she was closer to 60 rather than 45 in 1810.However, she wouldn't be the first person who had her age wrong in the census.There was also a youngest daugher, Mariah Thomas, b. 1798, who may be the young girl enumerated in the census in 1810.
There is supposed to be a pair of barely legible gravestones in South Williamstown MA belonging to John and Hannah Albro.One transcription has them as Albright, with Hannah's death date in 1830.Another transcription has Albro as the last name.One transcription has Hannah as being 30 in 1830.
I think she was 80, and it is just illegible.If so, it tracks better with the age of her first husband, and would make John in the same generation as Martin Albro.
If anyone is working on this line and wants to share, or can give me some additional information it would be much appreciated.
