ALBAUGH, SAMUEL - On the 1st inst., at the residence of his son, near West Milton, Ohio, Samuel Albaugh, in the 64th year of his age. Father Albaugh was born near Holldaysburg, Blair county, Pa., in the year 1804; was then married in 1827, and removed to Miami county, Ohio, in 1829, where he selected a piece of land in Union township, and rode to Cincinnati and bought it of the Government at the usual rate. He accordingly cleared the land and made a home where a family of six children, three sons, and three daughters, were reared, all of whom are now residents of this county. Mr. Albaugh was ever noted for a charitable and hospitable disposition, and the poor or suffering never turned away from him unrelieved. He took a very decided stand--far in advance of his neighbors--in the cause of education, and spared neither time, means, or patience, to educate no only his own family, but had others around him who showed a desire for knowledge. He held a number of offices of trust among his fellow men; serving eight successive years as township Trustee, and 19 years as Justice of the Peace. He was universally respected by all who knew him for his honesty and frankness in all his dealings. Though not a member of any Christian church, he showed the greatest respect for all religious services; lived a strictly moral and Christian like life, and died in the expressed hope of a glorious immortality.
