Daniel is the brother of Henry Albright (#99). Both Daniel and Henry are Great-Great-Great-Great Grandfathers of the webmaster, Susan Leach Snyder.

According to Henry Albright's Revolutionary War pension apllication, "He was born in the State of Pennsylvania on the 4th of May 1759--and was removed to the County of Orange in North Carolina when about four years of age, where he hath resided every since." [Note: From this information, it appears that Jacob Albright, Daniel and Henry's father, moved the family from Berks County, Pennsylvania to Orange County, North Carolina about 1763. If Daniel was born in 1757, as several sources listed above indicate, then he would have been ~6 when the family moved; however, if he was born in 1765, as St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Burlington, N.C. Cemetery Records show, then Daniel was born after the move. ]

The name was Albrecht until the move to Orange County (now Alamance), N.C. The Albrechts first settled near Philadelphia on coming to America from Germany. This information is found in the diary of James Washington Albright, the original in the UDC, Chapel Hill, N.C. in The Southern Historical Society, Vol 1, pages 107-111.

[Note: Page 107 of the 1790 U.S. Census shows a Daniel Albrecht living in Berks County in Bern Township, Pennsylvania. Note that a Henry and a Jacob Albrecht were included in this census document. Daniel (#109) had a brother named Henry (#99) and a brother and father (Jacob Albright (#197/217)) named Jacob, but after considering evidence that Daniel's parents moved the family from Pennsylvania to North Carolina about 1763, this Daniel Albrecht is likely not Daniel Albright (#109). This Daniel Albrecht, Henry Albrecht, and Jacob Albrecht are likely related to the Albrights who went to North Carolina, but these are not the same people.]

In 1806, there was a Daniel Albright living in Guilford County, NC. This was recorded in Brick Church Records.(Source: North Carolina, Compiled Census and Census Substitutes Index, 1790-1890 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 1999). [Note in 1806, Daniel would have been ~ 41 years old. Caution: there is another Daniel Albright (brother of John Ludwick Albright (#111)g who this census listing may be. He would have been 35 years old in 1806.

Daniel bought 600 acres two miles west of Buffalo Presbyterian Church and located there in 1817. (The source of Russell Leach's (#3) genealogical research in black is History of Buffalo Presbyterian Church and Her People, by Rev. S.M. Rankin, circa 1934, p. 56.)

The North Carolina 1820 Federal Census Index, p. 57 & 58, lists two Daniel Albrights living in Guilford County. Their ID#s are NC32010490 & NC32010491 . One of these Daniels could be #109, while the other could be John Ludwick (Ludwig) Albright (#111)'s brother. One of these censuses (enumeration date August 7, 1820) lists: 2 Free White Males Under 10, 1 Free White Male 26 thru 44, and one Free White Female 26 thru 44. There is one person engaged in agriculture. This may be Daniel (#109), however, it is questionable. In 1820 he had 2 sons under 10: Lewis age 4 and Joel age 7. But Daniel likely has another son, Elias age 15 who lives at home and is not listed. Also, in 1820 Daniel was 55 and his wife was 48. Both are older that what appears in the census. [Note: As explained earlier, there is another Daniel Albright (brother of John Ludwick Albright (#111)g who this census listing may be, but he would have been 49 years old in 1820, which is also older than recorded in this census.]

The North Carolina 1830 Federal Census Index lists one Daniel Albright in Guilford County on p. 151. His ID # is NC55815355.

Albright, Clapp and Berk Families by Joseph H. Vance copyright 1987 Library of Congress catalog card number 87-050664 published March 1, 1988 Pg. 14 states that Daniel and his wife had nine children. Their children included Jacob (#55), George, William, Sophia, Daniel, Henry, Lewis, Elias, and Joel.

According to an source, Daniel died while visiting Jacob Albright (#197/217) (his father) & and Sophia Catharine (Catherine) Welder (#198/218) (his mother). [Note, this cannot be true since his father died in 1791 and his mother died between 1802 &1810. According to records at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Burlington, N.C., Daniel died in 1831; therefore, he would have outlived both of his parents. His wife, Catharine did not die until 25 years later.]
