Journal by Idescend2

My 6th great-grandparents, Jacob & Magdalena Albrecht, came to America in 1732 aboard the ship "Samuel". With them were Michael, age 13; Eva (age 8) and 3 year old twins, Maria and Christina. The family settled down in Lancaster Co., PA.

My direct ancestor is the Michael mentioned above, who married
Elizabeth Bauer.
Their son, also a Michael, married Magdalena Haldeman.
Their son, Emanuel, married Catherine Watts.
Their son, another Michael, married Harriet Aikman
Their daughter Hattie, married Henry Walker
Their daughter,Carrie, married Edward Davis
Their daughter, Vera, was my mother. She married
Johannes Larsen of Denmark.

Hello Betty, I am researching the Albright family, I will attempt to explain the connection. I think this would be called an extended family. Marshall Albright b 3 Apr 1829, 2nd wife was Celia Jane Selix b ABT 1833 in Ohio. The d/o Alfred Selix & Phoebe Jane Darwater. Alfred & Phoebe had another daughter, Mary Ann Selix who married King Emmanuel Harmon, this couple was the great grandparents of my husband,Clyde W. Davies. Do you find you are descended from any of these people? Appreciate hearing back from you and appreciate any information you may of found on any of these families: Albright;Selix;Derwacter/Darwater. This can just about make you pull your hair. I am 77 yrs old now, we live in Missouri.
Thanks so much and hoping we can help each other.
