Introduction

This research homepage details my wife's paternal grandfather's lineage back to Colonial days in Virginia, and further into Ireland, Scotland, and Germany. The large majority of this research came from transcribing Annette Fisher Albin's The Albin’s of Harrison County, Indiana, which includes data from The Virginia Albins by Ethel Winifred Albin.


Notable People

William Albin (b. abt 1710) was the first Albin ancestor to immigrate to Colonial Virginia from Ireland. He, and his neighbor John Bruce, were among the first settlers in the Shenandoah Valley.

John Bruce (b. 1690) was another early settler in the Shenandoah Valley, possibly under the guidance of Jost Hite's son. He founded Brucetown, Virginia. The Bruce ancestry has been traced to 11th Century Scotland.

Revolutionary War soldier George Albin (b. 1758) served in the Commander-in-Chielf’s Guard, a special group of body guards for General George Washington.

William Bruce (b. 1776) founded Bruceville, Indiana, fought at the Battle of Tippecanoe, and may have hosted a young Abraham Lincoln at his home.
