The Ashland Times, 20 April 1893
Our community has again been called to mourn the loss of one of its oldest and most respected citizens, Mrs. Albright, in the 71st year of her age. She was born in Northumberland county, Pa., and moved to this township <<Savannah>> many years ago when many of the fine farms of this vicinity were in the wood. Mrs. Albright was a member of the German Reformed church and has been much esteemed by her friends for her steadfast christian faith and exemplary life. She leaves a large circle of friends to mourn her death. Rev. A. F. Upp preached the funeral sermon at the M. E. church to a large congregation.

A special thanks to Rita Kopp, Ohio, for her contribution to the knowledge of this branch
