Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

Sylvia Mae Allbright (FAG#126953438)
Jim, I have been photographing Calcutta Cemetery recently, and looking for Sylvia's headstone for your memorial. This is really SYLVIA MAY YANT ALBRIGHT (not Allbright) born 06 Jan 1888 Clay, Indiana, and married Homer Albright on 25 Feb 1906.

There's suppose to be two infant children: Lester (1913-1914) and Richard (1925-1926) Albright buried in Calcutta Cemetery. I'm looking for their headstone (On same stone).

I found Sylvia's husband, Homer Albright on Find A Grave in Oak Park Cemetery (#52058257), Noble County, Indiana.

Obituary dated 8 Oct 1931, page 02 Tribune reads: "Sylvia May Albright, Brazil, Ind., Oct 8, - Sylvia May Albright, 43 years old, died at the residence. She is survived by the husband, Homer; three daughters, Cleo, Helen and Leota; six sons, William, Herbert, Herman, James, John and Donald and the father Jasper Yany of Harmony, Ind."

Hope this helps.
