JOHN C. ALBRIGHT, one of the wealthiest and most influential farmers of Union township, Van Wert county, Ohio, and a veteran of the late Civil war, is a son of Solomon and Margaret (Cramer) Albright, and was born in Marion county, Ohio, in 1842.  Solomon was a native of Schuylkill county, Pa., born in 1809, and a boy when he came to Ohio with a brother, on whose farm in Fairfield county they lived until 1836, when he entered eighty acres and lived thereon until 1870, then sold and purchased his present farm, adjoining.  His wife was born in Fairfield county, Ohio, in 1815, a daughter of Benjamin and Margaret Cramer, of Pennsylvania-Dutch stock, and they were married in 1834, eleven children being the result, of whom six are still living, viz:  Henry H., of Michigan; John C., our subject; William and Silas, of Paulding county, Ohio; Samuel, farmer and stock raiser of Morrow county, Ohio, and Amanda, wife of James Wescott, of Marion county, Ohio.

John C. Albright was reared a farmer and, after four years of farming on his own account in Marion county, came to Union township, Van Wert county, and purchased eighty acres of land, to which he has since added eighty acres, and has also bought eighty acres in Paulding county, adjoining; his home place is now one of the finest in the county, having 3,000 rods of tile drainage...

Omitted: a very long paragraph describing John's Civil War experiences, which contains no genealogical information.

The marriage of Mr. Albright took place in 1872, to Miss Mary E. Shafer, daughter of Jacob H. and Hester A. (Cupp) Shafer, from an old Pennsylvania-Dutch [make that Deutsch!] family.  No children have come to bless the union of Mr. and Mrs. Albright, but they have adopted two J.W. Holden and Myrtle B. Loffer.

In politics Mr. Albright is a republican and takes an active part in the success of his party.  He is progressive in every department of citizenship and renowned for his practical benevolence and holds the respect of his fellow citizens to the fullest extent.
