  • Notes 
    • John Neher taught Albert the carpenter and plastering trades. Albert didn't like farming, especially the animals. Albert and the other boys were happy when Uncle John took them to work with him. Construction became Albert's career.

      Albert married Doris McMartin. They rented a farm with a few animals, but Albert kept on with his construction work. They had a little girl named Jean. When Jean was five years old, her mother died during childbirth, and so did the baby, named Elizabeth. Doris and the baby Elizabeth were buried together.

      Albert and daughter Jean then lived with Albert's mother Elizabeth and Uncle John (Henry had already died), until Albert built a one room house in Bridgewater.

      Albert did not remarry until late in life, when he married Neva. During WWII, Albert worked in a shipyard in Portland Oregon.
