Notes  Abraham Albright, "second son of Henry and Barbara (Rittenhouse) Albright, was born in the Township of Dunn, Haldimand County, Ontario, on the 21st day of December, 1859. When he was quite young his father moved to Lincoln County, near Jordan, where young Abraham was raised. He received a fair common school education in his boyhood days. Not finding things according to his desires he left his native County in 1887 and came to the town of Berlin where he soon found employment with the firm of J. Y. Shantz & Son in the manufacturing of buttons. In April, 1890, he entered the services of the Canadian Express Company, which position he still holds. He is of a quiet and retiring disposition amiable and agreeable in his manners, and is highly respected as a citizen. He is united in marriage with Miss Frances A. Price. His family consists of one child, a son named Solon."
