I, too, cannot find Albright and Katy's (Caty's) parents but you might be interested in a just-published book titled "Katy's Shawl" (buybooksontheweb.com) which tells about Katy (Caty) and Albright losing 4 children to an Indian raid, never to be heard from again.
Katy knitted a shawl in remembrance of her lost babies and it was handed down thru 6 generaitons of strong capable women until it was buried with my mother, Laverna George Wood-Thomas in 1979.
The story is FICTION but is based on family tales thru the early pioneer days, canal-building, railroads, the Civil War with 7 brothers on opposite sides, labor strife in the 1880's, the first World War, the Great Depression, World War II and its aftermath - one rousing adventure after another.
We may share a common ancestor - Philip D. George (b. 1807)m. Rebecca Pittman, and bore Philip (b. 1843) my gr-grandfather.
"A History of the George Family and the Wood Family" is in the historical libraries of Cambria-Bedford-Clearfield, the PA Hist. Library, Lib of Congress, British Lib, the Natl. Lib of Scotland, the Portage (PA) Hist Society.
More info from Walt Wood, 2258-B Via Puerta Laguna Hills, CA 92653 (949) 587-9692.
