[Note: Sarah's brother, Daniel married Sarah's husband (Jacob's) sister, Sophia Albright; Sarah's sister Martha "Patsey" Albright married Jacob's brother, George.

Sarah Albright (#56) and Jacob Albright (#55) were second cousins, as were Daniel Albright (#56-c) and Sophia Albright (#55-c) and Martha Albright (#56-g) and George Albright (#55-b) . They all shared common great grandparents John Albright (Johannes Albrecht) (#393/433/441) and Anna Barbara Gossauer (#394/434/442). In addition to these second cousins were John Albright (Sophia's half brother) and his wife Katie Albright. John was the son of John Ludwig Albright, who was the brother of Katie's father, Jacob Albright, Therefore John and Katie were also second cousins and great grandchildren of John Albright (Johannes Albrecht) (#393/433/441) and Anna Barbara Gossauer (#394/434/442). ]



Sarah and her husband, Jacob, probably had 7 children: Elizabeth Catherine, Rebecca Jane, Sarah P. (#28), Daniel E., George W., Julia A., and William Madison. [Note: Although reported by Russell Leach in his genealogy, May Caroline Albright, was not likely their child. She was born after Jacob died and no other information that could be found by this webmaster substantiates her birth to Sarah and Jacob.]

[Note: Sarah was only 15 when she married her 28 year old cousin, Jacob Albright. He died at the age of 56 and she lived to be nearly 87 1/2 years old. Interestingly, she died 100 years after Jacob was born.]

Sarah filed a petition with the North Carolina Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions August Term 1847 stating Jacob had died, leaving her a widow with two adult daughters (Elizabeth C. Ephland (widow) and Rebeccah Albright) and four minors under the age of twenty-one (Sarah Albright (#28), Daniel Albright, George Albright, and William Albright . Julia A. is not mentioned in the petition and it is assumed by this webmaster that she died prior to 1847.)
