Could you be a tad more specific....like WHERE he was born? NY?NJ?KY?IN?ILL?MO?
And the names of the "contenders"?
By 1816 there were probably about 10 Albert Terhunes being born - it's no wonder you have two sets of parents ... you MIGHT have had 8 or 9 possibilities !!!8^)
Do you have the names of your Albert's children? Terhunes often followed the tradition of naming the first son for his paternal grandfather and the second for his maternal grandfather.Likewise daughters 1 and 2 for their grandmothers.
