I'm sorry if I replied to Mr. Htu only in French. The reason for
that is because I got the connection (a Mr. Easton from the US
I believe) from the Quebec Laurentians area
(http://rootsweb.com/qclauren/index.htm) which he had previously
given us on this list about a week ago, and I wanted to thank him
for the info.
It seems to me that your ALBRIGHT and Mary KARKNER are the same as
the names I have found in the above rootsweb site who were "ALBRIGHT/ALBRECHT
married to Mary KERCHENER". Both these names
have obviously been anglicized.
Both ALBRECHT AND KERCHNER appear in Mr. Merz' book "Register of
German Military Men in Canada after the American Revolution".
Mr Merz is the list owner of this site as you probably know.
He is the expert on Hessians and other German soldiers who were
in the USA and Canada during the Am. Rev.
I don't have the Easton address, but you can find it at the rootsweb
URL above, by looking at the names listed. (ALBRIGHT).
I see that you have an ancestor who lived in Argenteuil around 1800.
My gggrandfather, John Albert (aka Jean Baptiste Albert, John Alberd
and Johann Giest Halbaer) lived there from about 1803 to 1822.
Where could I get the book you referred to? What is the title, the
author and the publisher? I would be interested in getting a copy.
My ggrandfather and his eight siblings were all born there
between 1804 and 1823 (one posthumously of course). They
subseqently all moved to the Ottawa area (around 1830)
I remember having seen this name - ALBRECHT -in the 1825 census
for Argenteuil. Since it is so close to Albert, I checked it
very carefully to make sure it wasn't my Albert.
I saw the name CARKNER many times around Eastern Ontario, but never
made the connection!
