From HCCO 1881 p884-5

"HENRY ALBRIGHT, farmer; P.O. Galion was born in Dauphin Co., Penn., Sept. 17, 1827. He is the son of John and Sarah (Shafer) Albright, who are natives of the Keystone State their marriage occurring there in 1816. In 1829, they came to Crawford Co., Ohio, performing the journey in about a month, in three-horse wagon, settling in Whetstone Township, and entering 73 acres of land on See. 22. Mr. Albright was a boot and shoe maker, and after his arrival in the township, for quite number of years, worked at his trade in connection with farming. His death occurred in 1866, under peculiar and distressing circumstances. On the 1st of May, of the last-mentioned year, Mr. Albright had in his house about $400 in money, together with considerable jewelry. These facts having become known outside of the family, aroused the avarice of unknown parties, five or six of whom, completely disguised with masks and paint, came to the house one night and demanded the money. Having been refused their demands, they set upon Mr. Albright and beat him terribly, inflicting the same punishment upon his son John, who had come to the assistance of his father. To save their lives, they were forced to give up their hard-earned money, whereupon the robbers departed. Mr. Albright was so badly injured, that, after lingering until August of the same year. he died. The criminals were never identified, although suspicion and some quite strong evidence pointed to some near neighbors as having a hand in the crime. Mrs. Albright died Dec. 4, 1874. Eight children were born to these parents. three sons and five daughters, seven of whom survived the parents. Henry Albright's youth was passed, like that of other country boys, on the farm at hard work. He began for himself when of age, and was married to Miss Savina Weirick Jan. 4, 1854. who was born in Pennsylvania She became the mother of four children. as follows : Matilda, Agnes, Isaac and John. She died in 1866. On the 24th of September, 1867, Mr. Albright married Miss Laura Noblit. This lady was born in Bucyrus. Ohio, Nov. 26, 1840, she bore her husband three children-Charles H., George F., and Ida M., all of whom are yet living. Mr. Albright owns 226 acres of well-improved land. He is a prominent Republican and is nicely situated as regards this world's goods."
