Lewis Albright died Monday morning at 2:10 o’clock at the home of his nephew, Henry Wasson, on South Washington Street. Mr. Albright suffered a stroke of paralysis some three years ago and he never recovered from it, although he had been a confirmed invalid for only a year previous to his death. The funeral was conducted Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock under the auspices of the Knights Templar, Rev. G. W. Switzer, of Lafayette, officiating. Mr. Albright was born in Rockbridge County, Va., August 18, 1827, and was accordingly 71 years of age at the time of his death. He was one of the original “49-ers” crossing the plains to California in that memorable year. He made his residence there for quite a period, but in 1868 came to Crawfordsville and afterwards made his home here. He was quite prominent in both Masonic and Odd Fellows circles and the former society, the Knight Templar branch of it, conducted his obsequies. Mr. Albright was a man highly esteemed and greatly respected. He lived a highly useful life and was ever devoted to the cause of the sick and distressed. - thanks to S
