George Washington Albritton

A Brief of George Washington Albritton and Sarah Ann Fowler of Union Parish, Louisiana
Submitted by: Tim Hudson, edited by Barbara J. Frost.

George Washington Albritton was born in Wilkinson County, Georgia in 1810, the son of Enoch Albritton and Penelope Frizzle. ...George and his mother, Penelope, lived together, since her other children had married.
In 1836 George purchased government land in adjoining Conecuh County, Georgia but there is no indication that he ever lived there.
In 1840 he was still living in Snow Hill with his mother, and other records indicate that he resided there during the 1840s.
In 1818 the Fowlers moved from Columbus County, North Carolina to Alabama. Their eldest daughter was Millie Elizabeth, born in 1813, and their fourth daughter was Sarah Ann, born in 1817.
About 1841, George W. Albritton married Elizabeth and she became the mother of his two eldest sons. However, shortly after the second son was born in 1846, Elizabeth died, perhaps in childbirth.
In 1847, George W. Albritton moved with his brother-in-law, Noah Scarborough, and sister, Lavincy Albritton Lee, to Union Parish, Louisiana. It appears his sons remained in Alabama, perhaps with his mother Penelope Albritton.
In late 1849, George returned to Wilcox County, Aalabama and in January 1850, he married the sister of his first wife, Sarah Ann Fowler. Sarah Ann had been born in Monroe or Clarke County, Alabama. Shortly afterwards, they moved back to Union Parish, Louisiana with his sons and his mother, Penelope Frizzle Albritton.

George Washington Albritton was a Primitive Baptist and probably a member of Liberty Hill Primitive Baptist Church. He was too old to serve in the army during the War for Southern Independence, but his eldest son Enoch Richard Albritton served in both the Confederate Army and Cavalry. George W. Albritton died in 1867 and was buried in the Liberty Hill/Taylor Cemetery. Sarah Ann Fowler Albritton only lived a few more years, as she died in 1875.
All of the Albrittons living in eastern Union Parish, Louisiana descended from George Washington Albritton and Sarah Ann Fowler Albritton (the descendents of G. W. Albritton's and Elizabeth remaining in Union Parish, Louisiana don't have the Albritton surname).

Comments: Interested in records on the families of Noah Lewis Scarborough and wife Samantha Fowler Scarborough and also George Washington Albritton and wife Sarah Ann Fowler Albritton who moved to Union Parish LA in 1848 from Wilcox Co AL. Both families settled on adjoining plantations about 8 miles east of Farmerville. Both Fowler women were sisters, daughters of Richard and Sarah Fowler. Richard Fowler followed his children to Union Parish in late 1850. Any help appreciated.
