Family bible records show George Duncan b. 6/7/1785 in Scotland m. Mary Alberger (Alburger) in Philadelphia, Pa. 1/19/1809, had 11 children, George Cleaver, Philip Simpson, Susanna R., Samuel Atherton, Charles K., Mary Elizabeth, William A., Jane Maria, Nathaniel Smith, David P. & Adam Jackson. Died 2/18/ 1862 in Johnstown, Pa. Bible states George and 2 brothers came over(brothers names not given), one of them went west, the other south, George stayed in Pa. Searching for Scottish or American relatives. I am descended from Samuet Atherton, through Samuel Wallace and Samuel Edwin, railroad men, and ultimately S.W and S.E. found their home in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Marie.......I think that your Mary Alberger may have been an aunt of my g-g-g-grandfather Henry Alburger b. 1810 in Philadelphia....I'm still trying to figure out whose son he was there Adam, Christopher and Phillip and some more I can't recall at present. The were "victuallers". The had been butchers in Germany. If I learn anything else I'll post it. Judith

i believe that you are right there. I have a family tree that my grandfathers cousin completed in I believe 1979 and these names are mentioned. Elizabeth would have been a sister of your relative and my great grandmother times 4. They are Alb ergers yet I can not find exactly where all these people fit in. I believe that they are children of Adam alberger Jr yet this is just conjecture. I would be happy to scan copies to you. The other mystery is mary and Philip Cleaver. They are at the top of this tree and I believe that mary was an Alberger yet again a mystery. Any ideas would be wonderful. Annie Bowes
