Part I: Thomas Albritton (b. 1797 in Pitt Co., NC), son of Luke, Sr. I think the Thomas, Samuel, and Luke who came to Graves County, Kentucky were sons of Adam Albritton and Eleanor Cason of Pitt County, NC. (Source: Adam Albritton Bible).
THOMAS ALBRITTON was born November 24, 1796 in Pitt County, North Carolina (Source: Thomas Albritton Family Record) and died March 27, 1858 in Graves County, Kentucky (Source: Graves County Kentucky Deaths, 1852-1859.).He married LIZINA CONWAY Abt. 1821.She was born 1804 in North Carolina, and died December 16, 1877 in Kentucky (Source: Thomas Albritton Family Record).
Notes for THOMAS ALBRITTON: Thomas Albritton didn't join his brothers in Kentucky until after 1840.He appears on the 1840 Census for Pitt County, North Carolina.
Notes for LIZINA CONWAY: Alternate spellings of her name are Lazina or Conoway.
Marriage: Abt. 1821
Children of THOMAS ALBRITTON and LIZINA CONWAY are: 1. Ethelinda Albritton 2. John Thomas Albritton 3. Adam Albritton 4. Wadigan Albritton 5. Elizabeth Albritton 6. Harriett Albritton 7. Peter Albritton 8. Mathies Albritton 9. Hallon Albritton 10. Wethean T. Albritton
Part II: trying to connect R T Albritton (b 1844 in Graves Co., KY) and J. E. Albritton (b. 1840 in KY).Thomas had two grandsons, R. T. and J. E.I'm pretty sure that's the R. T. you are wondering about.The J. E. was born in a different year...
Thomas's son JOHN THOMAS ALBRITTON was born December 02, 1823 in North Carolina. He married MARTHA JANE CONWAY.She was born October 04, 1828 in Virginia.
Children of JOHN ALBRITTON and MARTHA CONWAY are: 1. Robert T. Albritton 2. Elizabeth Albritton 3. Penelope Albritton 4. James Edmund Albritton, b. April 28, 1848, Graves County, Kentucky; d. August 22, 1894, Mayfield, Graves County, Kentucky. (He's the one who married Cora Harris, then 2nd Nannie Stovall Boyd.)
There is another J. E. (James E.), son of Bluford Allbritton and Emaline Burton (he was born in 1840).They are from what I tend to call the "Calloway Allbrittens".Very confusing, no?
Part III: There was a John Manley (Meanly) Allbritten who is thought to be a descendent of Ralph Albrighton through his son Richard.He may have been born in Virginia or the Carolinas.The family lived a while in Franklin Co., GA, but John Manley Allbritten ended up in Calloway County, Kentucky.He has numerous descendents in western Kentucky. The name tends to be spelled Allbritten or Allbritton, depends on who wrote it!
