Research notes:

Facts for the family of George Albert and Elizabeth Greenawalt are in their marriage notes, starting about 1826 in Ohio. The notes below are for potential Albert/Albright ancestors of George Albert, in the Pennsylvania records before 1820, although none have children with ages to match this family:

Albright - Perry Co. Albright, George (d. 1822) - Served in the Revolutionary War. Spent his adult life in Buffalo Township of Perry County, Pennsylvania. Children were George Albright, John Albright, David Albright (1782-1852), Frederick Albright, Margaret Albright Foster (husband Joseph Foster), and Cathrian Albright Briniman. George's wife Barbara might be Barbara Cradelbaugh. Names of George's children came from his will. According to the family history, George and his brother Jacob immigrated from Switzerland and indentured themselves to Mr. Grubbs of Lancaster County for three years to pay for their passage. They are sons of George Albright who remained in Switzerland. The family history states that Jacob was the Albright that founded the Albright Church but that information does not seem to fit the information available on the founder of the Albright Church. Perhaps there was a brother Jacob...just not the Albright Church Jacob. I have information on David Albright and his move to Ohio, then Indiana, and his children's lives in Indiana and Illinois that I would be happy to share.

1841 The will of a George Albert of Hempfield Twp, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania named deceased son George.
