Albaugh Family Genealogy Forum
This information is provided for all researchers interested in the Licking Co, Ohio Albaugh line of
Zachariah (designated Zachariah "IV" by Maurice Neverman's "Albaugh Project"). Zachariah "IV" was the son of Peter Albaugh of Frederick County, Maryland, himself the son of Zachariah "I" who arrived in Philadelphia on 23 September 1734 aboard the ship "Hope." Zachariah "I" had three sons in addition to Peter: Johann Wilhelm ("William") Albaugh; Johann Gerhardt ("John Sr.") Albaugh; and Zachariah "II." This is significant in that Zach "II" was the sire of Zach "III" of Preble Co Ohio and later of Union Co, Indiana. To further complicate an already complex situation, Johann Wilhelm noted above had a son named Zachariah as well (designated Zachariah "V" by Maurice Neverman's "Albaugh Project"), who died at Baltimore County, Maryland. These several Zachariahs were apparently confused during their lifetimes and continue to be confused by researchers today. This may explain why some accounts of the life of Zachariah "IV" say he was 106 when he died (based on an erroneous 1740's birth date--that date is more likely the birthdate of his cousin Zach "V").

Zachariah Albaugh [Albaugh Project: Zachariah IV]
Mr. Zachariah Albaugh was one of Licking County’s honored, heroic, centenarian pioneers. He was born in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in 1748 [see below], but was removed by his father in very early life to Maryland, where he was living at the commencement of the Revolutionary War; being then seventeen years of age. He was of vigorous growth and was pronounce eligible to the honors and hardships of the soldier in the War for Independence. He entered the army as a private at the beginning and remained a soldier in it until the close of that celebrated and sanguinary struggle, which eventuated in the establishment of American Independence!
When he heard of the shedding of the blood of American citizens by British soldiers at Lexington, he resolved, with thousands of other brave spirits and patriotic hearts, to “leave his ploughshare in the mould, his flocks and herds without a fold, the sickle in the unreaped grain, the grain half-garnered on the plain” and
go forth in the dauntless courage of a patriotic soldier of that trying period, to battle in defence [sic] of his country’s rights.
Mr. Albaugh at the early age of seventeen entered the Maryland line in 1775 [born 1758; indicating that the 1748 birth reference above is a typographical error], but he sometime thereafter became an officer and as such he participated in the sanguinary battle of Germantown, which was fought on October 31st 1777. Here he frequently saw General Washington, and on one occasion he guarded the tent occupied by the Commander-In-Chief!
Upon the close of the war, Mr. Albaugh removed to Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, where he lived in the vicinity of the residence of General St. Clair, who in 1788 became the Governor of the Territory North West of the Ohio. Here Mr. Albaugh lived until 1817, when he emigrated to Licking County, where he lived in comparative retirement during the last forty years of his life (with the exception of a short time spent in Knox County), finally closing his eventful life on the 9th day of November 1857, at the advanced age of 109 years! [again, an error, for reasons explained above--he was 99 years old at his death]. His death occurred at the residence of his son in Newton Township, where he was buried with the honors of war.
I have mentioned Germantown as one of the battles in which he participated. Doubtless he was on duty on many another battle-field, but my information is too limited to enable me to speak in detail on this subject. Mr. Albaugh was long the recipient of a pension from his country, whose freedom he assisted in establishing, a favor always gratefully received, as he had not been successful in the accumulation of “this world’s goods.” He had outlived his age and generation, and consequently during many of the latter years of his life, his intercourse with mankind was limited to a small circle of friends. Until within a short period before his death, he retained, to a remarkable degree, his mental faculties; and the writer hereof has been frequently highly interested while listening to his recital of the stirring events of the “times that tried men’s souls,” and in witnessing his enthusiasm while “fighting his battles o’er again,” and following in imagination as he rehearsed the story of gloom, despondency, destitution, and sometimes of triumphs too--the bloody track of the patriot army of the Revolution!
Mr. Albaugh was descended from German ancestors and his education had been mainly in the German language, though not exclusively. During a considerable portion of his long life he was engaged in the profession of teaching, both in the German and English languages. His reading had been more extensive than was usual with his contemporaries, and he was consequently more intelligent and possessed of a wider range of information than was common in the last century among men in the humble walks of life. In early life, he adopted the Lutheran form of Christianity and uniformly, during his long career, adhered to it, always conforming to its requirements when health and strength and opportunity permitted.
This veteran centenarian hero and pioneer had naturally a vigorous and robust constitution, which by his abstemiousness, regularity of habits, and simple mode of life, he preserved unimpaired, in a great measure, almost to the close of his life of more than a hundred years. He was a “gentleman of the old school,” and retained almost to the close of his life the customs and style of dress of the last century, wearing the queue [powdered wig], the breeches and knee and shoe buckles until he was almost a hundred years old, when only on account of greater convenience, he substituted the modern costume and more simple style of dress. The long life of Mr. Albaugh may be attributed in a great measure to his almost total abstinence from intoxicating liquors. Not long before his death, he stated to the writer that he had not used a pint of ardent spirits for twenty years, and that he had been an almost teetotaler all his life. He further observed that he had his canteen filled but a very few times during the whole period of the Revolutionary War, and that he endured the hardships of the service much better than his comrades who received daily supplies of the ardent, and he had no doubt that his superior hardiness and power of endurance of hardships and privations was mainly attributable to his temperate habits, and general observance of the laws of health.
Mr. Albaugh was a man of cheerful disposition and hilarious temperament, uniformly contemplating the “sunny side of things,” passing through life happily himself, and ministering to the happiness of those around him. It is therefore not strange that his children and descendants to the fourth generation should have had warm attachments to the venerable patriarch, which was specifically manifested during all the years of his declining life, continuing unabated even to his death, and still exhibited in the veneration of his memory and in cherishing the recollections of the virtues of this venerable, patriarchal, virtuous Christian pioneer and patriot hero of the Revolution.
Our Revolutionary Fathers are all, all gone! Do we realize that fact? Do we properly estimate the legacy of civil and religious liberty their valor and sufferings secured to us? Let us realize and fully appreciate our obligations to them for the freedom we enjoy! Let their labors, privations and struggles in the establishment of American Liberty live ever green in the memory of their highly favored descendants! Let their triumphant battlefields, rendered immortal by their heroism, ever flame up along the highway of the passing centuries, as reminders of the colonial vassalage of our fathers, and as incentives to the payment of the debt of gratitude due them for the patriotic heroism they displayed in throwing off that vassalage and establishing American Independence!
The writer was frequently favored with protracted conversations with this venerable pioneer at his own cabin home in Newton Township during the latter years of his life and also on occasions of reciprocal visitations; and always found him communicative, intelligent, and highly entertaining. He was one of the guests of the writer at his own family celebration of American Independence in 1853, in which other Revolutionary soldiers and the widows of Revolutionary soldiers participated: the venerable Rev. Dr. Wylie officiating as chaplain. Honor to his memory--peace to his name!
Patient, calm, cheerful, resigned, the heroic pioneer Zachariah Albaugh quietly, happily descended the vale of years to the tomb, with recollections untinged with remorse, and with anticipations unmingled with fear or dread. Sustained through life by Christian faith, and cheered by the hope of the Life Immortal, he died with the belief that an ever-enduring hereafter would dawn gloriously upon his spirit in the Better Land!

“verified” by Mrs. Luella Bancroft Fant [same lady who did the 1909 Evans Cemetery readings at St. Louisville; once generally regarded as fairly reliable].
Zachariah Albaugh was born in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, in 1758.
He enlisted as a private and rose to the rank of major. Was at Germantown
October 31, 1777, and served until the close of the war. Died November 9, 1859 [sic]
in Newton Township--buried at Evans Cemetery near St. Louisville.

Chatham, called at first Harrisburgh, was laid out by Colonel John Waggoner in 1829. It has been a post-town nearly 75 years. Its inhabitants in 1850 numbered 208. St. Louisville was laid out in 1839 by John Bell and Stephen Ritter. Subsequently, additions were laid out by John Evans and Wesley Coffman. It early became a post-town, superseding the post-office at Newton Mills, half a mile below. Some of its postmasters were Elijah Goff,
David Carver, Daniel Albaugh, Jackson Belt, and Perry A. Harris.
page 329: [information re: Zachariah’s son Daniel and local history, continued]
Vanattaburgh [note: now called simply, “Vanatta”] had its principal growth since the
completion of the Sandusky, Mansfield & Newark Railroad. The first post-office
established in the township was at Newton Mills, seven miles north of Newark, at the
crossing of the North Fork by the Mount Vernon Road. Colonel John Waggoner was the
first postmaster, and was succeeded by Major John Huston. Ultimately the office was
removed to St. Louisville and Nathan Hadley appointed postmaster. The Chatham
office was the second one established in the township. This was about 1831. Messrs.
Gosnell and Myers were the early postmasters. The Vanattaburgh office was the third
and last one established.
page 330: General John Spencer, Elias Hughes, and the centenarian hero of Revolutionary fame,
Zachariah Albaugh, may appropriately be named as among the most noteworthy and
patriotic of the settlers of the township. The latter was born in the Shenandoah Valley,
Virginia, and was removed by his father in early life to Maryland, where he resided at the beginning of the Revolutionary War; being then eighteen years of age. At this age he entered the army as a private but subsequently became an officer, and served during the entire war. He participated in the sanguinary battle of Germantown, October 31, 1777. At the close of the war, he removed to Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, where he lived near the residence of General St. Clair until 1817, when he emigrated to Licking County. Here he lived (with the exception of a short time spent in Knox County) in comparative retirement during the last forty years of his life , finally closing his eventful career on the ninth day of November 1857, at the advanced age of 100 years or more. His death occurred at the residence of his son in Newton Township, where he was buried with the honors of war.
Mr. Albaugh was of German descent and his education had been mainly in the German language, though not exclusively. During a considerable portion of his life he was engaged in teaching, both in German and English. His reading had been more extensive than was usual with his contemporaries, and he was consequently more intelligent and possessed of a wider range of information than was common during the last century among men in the humble walks of life.

Evans Cemetery, Newton Township, St. Louisville, Licking County, Ohio
[copied by Mrs. L.B. Fant in 1909]
The ground was given to the pioneers by John Evans, whose cabin--built of hewn logs--still stands near
the place. Upon the top of a high hill, on the farm now owned by Craig Hutchinson, near St. Louisville,
are two well-preserved monuments that mark the resting place of the original owners of the land:
ALLBAUGH Daniel, son of “Zach,” died Mar. 19, 1857, ae 69y, 1m, 8d.
Third postmaster of St. Louisville.
Jacob, died May 6, 1873, ae 41y, 5m, 5d.
William, son of Solomon, died Mar. 25, 1848, ae 17y, 8m, 11d.
Ada I., dau. of D.M. & M.C., died May 27, 1898, ae 16y, 11m, 20d.
ALLBAUGH “Zach, Cont’l Troops, Rev. War.” He was born in VA October 31, 1758, but the family
removed to Maryland, in which state he enlisted in Frederick County
March 1, 1775 as a private in Captain Daniel Shaler’s company,
Major Philip Smith’s regiment. He served in all two years and eight months
and was long a pensioner; his Sur. File being 2902. Was at Germantown
October 31, 1777. Mr. Allbaugh was of German descent, well-educated in the
language and engaged in teaching it and English in this county. An extensive
reader, a “teetotaler,” intelligent, methodical and industrious. He died
November 8, 1857 and was buried with the honors of war.
The journey from Maryland to Ohio was made via Huntington and Westmoreland
Counties, Pennsylvania as is shown by a “day-book” kept by Mr. Allbaugh
and now in the possession of the writer. Upon the cover is written in a
beautiful hand, “Zach Allbaugh, 1802 - 18-- His Book.” Through the efforts
of the cemetery sexton, W.B. Jones, a bronze marker was placed at this
grave in May.”

but it does not say “born Virginia.” Kathy Trager, Newark, Ohio].

Brief Memoirs---John Albaugh
The subject of this sketch died at his home in Utica, after a protracted and painful illness, August 1, 1878
at the age of 66 years, 3 months, and 28 days. He was born In Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania
but lived in this county since 1817, and in Utica for the last twenty-five years, most of which time he was
an acting Justice of the Peace. Funeral services were under the direction of the Masonic fraternity, of which he was a member; the religious services being conducted at the Christian Church by Elder M.M. Lohr. A large concourse of friends attended the obsequies of the deceased, who was highly esteemed by the community in which he lived.
