Miscellaneous:

According to Nicholas Gibbs and his descendants, 1733-1977 by Nicholas Gibbs Historical Society, 1977, Ohio Historical Society Library, "In 1800, Orange County, North Carolina Census, page 498 Henry Albright was listed with a family consisting of himself, wife, 3 sons and 2 daughters." The 1800 Census is linked here.

Henry is listed in the 1820 North Carolina Federal Census Index, p. 364. In this census, he is listed as the head of the household. In the household there is one free white male of forty five and upwards, one free white female of ten and under sixteen, one free white female of forty five and upwards, three foreigners not naturalized, and two slaves (one a male of fourteen under twenty-six and the other a female of fourteen and under twenty-six). According to church records, in 1820, Henry would have been 61. Mary would have been ~ 60.

In the 1830 North Carolina Federal Census Index, p. 291, Henry is listed as the head of his family. His home has one free white male of seventy and under eighty, and one female of sixty and under seventy. According to church records in 1830, he would have been 71. Mary would have been ~70.There were 5 slaves in the household. 1 male 24-35, 3 females under 10, and one female 10 thru 23

Mary "Polly" and her husband, Henry, had 6 children: Jacob, Catherine, Elizabeth (#50), Joseph, Mary, and Nicholas.

On April 26, 2006 Norman Sharpe (Great-Great-Great-Grandson), Helen Leach (#4) (Great-Great-Great-Granddaughter) and Sandra Henson, Mary Lue Finch, and Susan Snyder (#2)... all Great-Great-Great-Great-Granddaughters... visited Stoners Church Cemetery located in a pasture on Rufus J. Dale's farm in Alamance County on Bellemont-Kimesville Rd. near the village of Belmont (near Graham) just off highway 49. While referring to a map that showed the location of tombstones in the cemetery, Mary's small stone was found buried in the earth and broken. (The map that was used was in the document Investigations at Historic Stoner's Cemetery (31 AM 174,174***), June 21, 1998 by Dr. Linda France Stine, PO Box 268, Julian, NC 27283 and Prepared for Stoner's Cemetery Preservation Fund Board, PO Box 2191, Burlington, NC 27216-2191.)

Below: Although the stone was difficult to read, her name "Mary Albright" was discernible. Blue chalk was applied to the stone to help make the reading of the stone easier.
