Conrad and Elizabeth Albrecht Family

The book titled One of Many by Reuben Bauer lists the Conrad Albrecht family. Conrad was born in Norka on April 9, 1873 and was confirmed in the Reformed faith in 1888 by Rev. Staerkel. In February 1895, Conrad was married to Miss Elizabeth Derr who was born in Norka on August 25, 1877. Elizabeth was confirmed at age 15 by Rev. Staerkel. This couple with two children and Conrad's mother (Christina Marie Albrecht) emigrated from Russia in February 1900 and arrived in Stony Plain, Alberta, Canada several weeks later. Upon arrival, the couple joined the Reformed Church (a log building at that time). In later years, they were active members of the Glory Hills Baptist Church.

The children born to this family were: Henry (September 12, 1896), Katie (October 30, 1899), John (July 17, 1901), Elizabeth (March 22, 1903), Emma (June 3, 1906), William (May 10, 1911), Annie (June 14, 1913), Adam (April 9, 1914), Reuben (May 13, 1915), Lawrence (May 1917), Clarence (July 19, 1919), and Sarah (April 3, 1922).
