THE ALBAUGH STORY (8/2000/BZ)
The Albaugh Clan of personal interest has its roots in the Rhien-Pfalz area of Germany in the 1600's and before. The line we know starts with Adam Ahlbach (1633-1715) x Agnes Gerhard (?-1722) >> Hans Theish Ahlbach (?-1731) x Anna Margaretha Schneider (?-?) >> Antonius Thonges Thuness Ahlbach x Anna Margaretha Schneider (1663-?) >> Zachariah Albauch (1689-bef. 1776) x Anna Dimeda Schumann (1698-1773). It will be Zachariah and Anna with their first three children that will immigrate to the American Colonies in the 1730's.
Zachariah Ahlbach, 45 (1689-bef. 1776), his wife Anna Schumann, 36 (1698--1773), with their first four children William, 11 (1723-1794), Anna Margretha, 8 (1726-bef. 1785), George Gerhard, 6 (1727-1789), Peter, 2 (1732-bef. 1811) arrived in the port of Philadelphia on September 23, 1734, aboard the ship "Hope" sailing from the port of Rotterdam. The family made the same migration followed by many other German immigrants to the American Colonies during this time period, and would apparently settle and farm in New Jersey, from about 1735 to the early 1750's. All of the other children were born in New Jersey; Charity (aft. 1734-aft. 1782), Zachariah II (Abt. 1737-1782), John W. (1740-1811), Eve (1744-?).
In the early 1750's, at the age of over 60 years, Zachariah I, started taking out leases on land in Frederick County, Maryland and begin farming. Eventually all of the children would migrate into the Frederick County area, with one to three coming later, one of interest being George Gerhard Ahlbaugh (1727-1789). Georege Gerhard would marry Anna Mary Pittenger (1728-1802) about 1760. The couple farmed in New Jersey and moved into the Maryland area around the rest of the Albaugh's that were farming there. They raised nine children one of which, the second oldest, Morris (1762-1833) was born in New Jersey before the move to Maryland.(1)
