I am seeking information on Michael Albright of the Mt Hermon Community, Alamance Co., NC.Michael was born around 1815 and married Cornelia Clendenin.The information I have on his parents indicate they are George Albright, and wife, Barbara Catherine "Katie" Holt.
George Albright sold 2 acres of land to Mt Hermon Church in 1834 and is suppose to be buried there.
I have located an obituary from the Alamance Gleaner that indicated....Col. Michael Albright, aged 81 years died Last Friday (Aug 11) at home near Mt. Hermon Church.He was the father of 15 children and is survived by 40 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Burial at Mt Hermon Obit was dated 17 Aug 1893. Based on this information, this Michael Albright would have a birth year of 1812.
With 15 children and all those grandchildren, etc., I am surprised not to find anything on Michael Albright.Also, I was unable to locate the grave at Mt Hermon Methodist Church.
Since the obit is on a Colonel Michael Albright, I would hope to locate some military record but I not sure which war he would have been in (If this in fact refers to Military Service) - too young for War of 1812, around 50 at the outbreak of the Civil War.
Any ideas or suggestions would certainly be appreciated.
