He become half owner of the Greensboro Times. At the age of sixteen he became an apprentice printer in the office of the Greensboro Patriot. In 1856 he began a partnership with E.W. Ogburn and C.C. Cole as publishers of the Greensboro Times, an independent literary weekly. This venture lasted until the war, when Ogburn died and Cole entered the army, and Albright joined Sterling and J.D. Campbell in a new printing firm. In May 1862, he enlisted in the army and served throughout the war as an ordinance sergeant in the Fifth Battalion of Light Artillery. After the war he returned to Greensboro and to publishing: The Patriot and Patriot and Times ‎(1868-1876)‎: The Beacon ‎(1880-1881)‎, a Democratic Greenback weekly; and the Daily Bugle ‎(1883-1884)‎, an organ of the new tobacco interests. He was briefly city editor of the North State and the Daily Record ‎(1890-1892)‎ before he removed to Asheville in 1892, where he lived the remainder of his life, and where he was city editor of the Morning Gazette and then publisher of the Ballot Box ‎(1894-1895)‎, a publication journal. m.

‎(James Washington, Jr, George B. He remarried Martha "Mattie" S. Purvis b: ABT. 1836 m. FEB. Children: Clara, Luther, Pattie.)‎ Note: In Alamance County, five miles south of Graham, is Mount Harmon ‎(Hermon)‎ Church. George, son of Daniel and Catherine Loy Albright, gave this track for a burying ground and many of the old Albrights were laid to rest there. Just two miles west of Mt. Harmon is the old Stoner Church where Jacob Albright, grandson of Henrich, was buried. The exact place is not known because most of the graves were only marked by a small rock protruding from the ground. There is no record of a name cut in the stone. What information that is available has been obtained mostly from family records usually found in the big old Bibles. However, some of the graves have soap stone markers but age has darkened these stones so much that the records are difficult to copy. Near Alamance is the old St. Paul Church graveyard where many Albright records are found. Just south of Alamance County is Chatham where the Pleasant Hill Christian Church is located. Near by, at the old Cane Creek Quaker Church, founded in 1751, where many Albright records are found. Then in Guilford County, at Greensboro, is the Buffalo Presbyterian Church which was organized in 1756 by David Caldwell. Here, in the older section of the cemetery, Albright markers predominate.

Pleasent Hill Church Cem in Alamance Co, NC. Durant studied medicine at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, graduated in 1851. He was the first doctor to practice in his home locality who had graduated from a medical school. In those days, when a man wanted to practice medicine, he apprenticed himself to a doctor for several years. Then after a year at medical school, he "hung out his shingle." The old surgical instruments that D.H. used in his practice are kept by his son, Walter H., and are quite antique compared with the modern surgical instruments of today. D. H. Albright owned twenty-five slaves and was a staunch Democrat. The following is a deed for slaves given by Crabtree Siler to his daughter, Sylvina Albright in 1855: "Know all men by these present that I Crabtree Siler of Chatham County and State of North Carolina hath given to D.H. Albright and my daughter Sylvina Albright all the negro slaves in their possession, to wit: Harry thirty years of age Mary twenty-eight years old Jane fourteen years of age Nancy nine years of age Mahala six years of age to have and to hold said slaves and their increase during their life-time then to be equally divided between her children if any otherwise to return to her brother Samuel F. Siler and his children to have and to hold the same free from any claim by me or other person in by or through me. In witness whereof I have set my hand and seal, this 18th day of July 1855. Signed and sealed in presence of S. Siler. ‎(Seal)‎ Crabtree Siler" ‎(There were no punctuation marks in the deed)‎After the Civil War, the South was disfranchised by the carpet beggers of the North for rebellion against the government. So at the request of Jonathan Worth and John Gilmore, who was once prominently mentioned for the vice-presidency, Governor Holden of North Carolina applied to President Johnson for pardon for Durant Hatch Albright. The request was granted about two months after Lee's surrender. The following is a copy of the pardon which was, in 1941, in possession of D.H. Albright's son, Walter H. Albright: "Andrew Johnson, President of the United States of America, ‎(to all to whom these presents shall come greeting:)‎ "Whereas, D.H. Albright of Chatham County, North Carolina, by taking part in the late rebellion against the Government of the United States, has made himself liable to heavy pains and penalties. "And whereas, the circumstances of this case render him a proper object of Executive clemency. "Now, therefore, be it known, that I, Andrew Johnson, President of the United States of America, in consideration of the premises, divers other good and sufficient reasons me thereunto moving, do hereby grant to the said D.H. Albright, a full pardon and amnesty for all offences by him committed, arising from participation, direct or indirect, in the said rebellion, conditioned as follows, viz: this pardon to begin and take effect from the day on which the said D.H. Albright shall take the oath prescribed in the Proclamation of the President, dated May 29, 1865, and to be void and of no effect it the said D.H. Albright shall hereafter, at any time, acquire any property whatever in slaves, or make use of slave labor. "And upon further condition that the said D>H. Albright shall notify the Secretary of State, in writing, that he has received and accepted the foregoing pardon.
"In testimony whereof, I have hereunto signed my name and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed. "Done at the City of Washington, this twenty-fourth day of June, A.D., 1865, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-ninth. By the President Andrew Johnson. W. Hunter, Acting Secretary of State." As it happened, disfranchisement lasted only one year. However, no one knew at the beginning how long it would last. In order to avoid any further trouble, D. H. Albright gave the negroes who worked for him after the war a receipt showing that they had received money for their labor. The following is a copy of a receipt, the original of which was kept by his son, Walter H. Albright: "Rc'd of D.H. Albright my former master ten dollars in full for work done for him since the Surrender of General John's Army last spring. Nov. 11th, 1865 George Albright Wm. Lashley X " "Rc'd of D.H. Albright my former master ten dollars in full of account for work done for him and Alfred Horniday since the Surrender of General John's Army last spring. Nov. 11th, 1865 Rencher Albright.

John Wood, Henry Clay b: 13 JUL 1842. Note: Cpt. Henry Clary b. 13 JUL 1842 Death: 27 OCT 1864 in Civil War -- Winder Hospital, Richmond, Virginia. Note: Capt. Henry C. Albright, a Confederate officer of the 26th North Carolina Regiment, was killed in battle near Petersburg, Virginia. Henry Clay, child of William and Louisa Wood Albright, had a very interesting war record. At the beginning of the Civil War in 1861, he was among the first volunteers from Chatham County, North Carolina. Mr. Vance, then Governor of that state, took special interest in Henry Clay's company and soon he became a Captain. During the war, Vance sent Captain Henry to Snow Camp to get recruits. There, he found strong union sentiments and was not successful in getting any one to enlist. He went to his brother's house, Durant Hatch Albright, and wrote his information in a letter to Vance. His brother warned him against the capture of this news by Union forces and sure enough his letter was intercepted in the mail by northern troops and published widely by northern papers. Captain Henry fought in the Battle of Gettysburg and went into Picket's famous charge. As history tells, he went into battle on July 1, 1863, with over 800 men in his regiment and only 216 came out unhurt. The next day, the regiment was engaged again and only 80 survived. This proves that the 26th North Carolinians from Chatham County showed unusual bravery and heroic courage. Captain Henry was wounded in the head in the Battle of Squirrel Level near Petersburg and died in Winder Hospital 27 days later. His hat still bears the bullet holes and blood. Henry's uniform and hat along with a sword captured from a Union soldier of rank, which had been handed down to his nephew, Walter Hatch Albright, are in the state museum at Raliegh, North Carolina. Gen. George Pickett's charge across a mile of open field led to the Confederacy loss at the Battle of Gettysburg and is considered the turning point of the Civil War. Of Picket's 15,000 troops, more than half were killed, captured or injured.

Wm. Lashley X ".. Note: William Albright, a wealthy land owner, served as state senator from Chatham County, 1836-1848. He was leader of a group who planned & financed the first railroad in North Carolina; the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad. His occupation was that of a farming and merchandising. He knew personally many of the leading men of that day. In politics he was a Whig. He served Chatham County in the Legislature both as Senator and Representative. He strongly opposed the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and wrote his sentiments to several of the national leaders. He was of dental disposition, loved by everybody, and drew his political support from both the Whig and Democrats. He died before the great social upheaval of 1861, and was spared the sight of brother arrayed against brother in battle strife.

Note: Jacob Albright, Hendrich's grandson, was the first Albright to emigrate to North Carolina from Pennsylvania prior to the Revolutionary war. With him he brought the old German Bible by Martin Luther. It contained the old family records telling of his grandfather settling in New York and of his father, John, moving to Pennsylvania. He settled in Orange County, now Alamance, near Mt. Harmon Church. The Bible has passed thru many hands. while Durant Hatch Albright of George was visiting at a friend's house over night near Burlington, N.C. he saw this book, asked for it and it was given him. In 1941 it was in the possession of his daughter, Mrs. Decie Albright Robertson of Washington, D.C. Sgt. Jacob was a drummer in the Revolutionary War and was pensioned. He is buried in the Stoner Church grave yard where he was an Elder. Stoner's Church, now on Rufus Dale's farm, Alamance County, North Carolina which is about 6 miles south of Burlington, North Carolina. Jacob Albright served in the North Carolina Militia before July 4, 1776, as he was detached for special service August 20, 1776. Jacob moved to Orange County after January 1763. He died in Orange County, N.C. He was one of the founders of "Stoner Church", which was organized after 1758 and one of its first Elders.

Wife of Jonathan Albright:
JULIANA HUTZELL ALBRIGHT: - Meyersdale Republican - July 14, 1927 - Death of Juliana Albright - The subject of this sketch who was one of Salisbury's oldest & most respected women, died at an early hour Mon. morning, the 11th inst., at the home of her son-in-law & daughter, Mr. & Mrs. Chauncey Meese, with whom she had been making her home since April 1922. In Oct. of that same year Mrs. Albright became afflicted with gangrene from which malady the doctors could not free her, & in time other ailments developed causing her to suffer intensely most of the time during her long affliction, until death came to her relief. All that loving hands could do for the aged sufferer was done by Mr. & Mrs. Meese & their children, but the best that could be done gave only temporary relief. However, Mrs. Albright bore her affliction bravely to the end, & died with an abiding faith in God & in the hope of a glorious immortality. Mrs. Albright was a daughter of the late Mr. & Mrs. John Hutzel & was the wife of the late Jonathan Albright, the latter dying 31 yrs. ago. She was the mother of eleven children, seven of whom preceded her to the grave. Her four surviving children are Minerva Ellen, wife of Chauncey Meese, of this place; Ida, widow of the late Wilson Gomer, of Keystone Junction; Elda, wife of Joseph Beal, of Meyersdale; & Frank of Masontown, Pa. She is also survived by a large number of grandchildren, as well as by one brother, John Hutzel, & one sister, Mrs. Isaac Lint. She was aged 83 yrs., 5 mos. & 6 days. She was a faithful member of the Lutheran church. Her remains will be taken to the undertaking rooms of W.C. Price of Meyersdale where they were prepared for burial. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. S. D. Sigler, pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church of Salisbury, at the home of Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Beal, in Meyersdale, at 2 o'clock Wed. afternoon, the 13th inst. Interment was made in the Meyersdale cemetery. Mrs. Chauncey Meese, one of Mrs. Albright's daughters, was unable to attend her mother's funeral, owing to being taken seriously ill very suddenly last Sat. night. Her condition is still quite serious, & she is in the hands of a trained nurse at her home.
