The finest published genealogy of this family is Joseph H. Vance, Albright, Clapp, Burk Families, Including: Philip and Anna (Clapp) Albright, Their Ancestors and Descendants (Lombard, Ill.: author, 1987), 242-69. Although Vance does not reference most of his facts, most of the research was clearly conducted in the records of the Brick Church in east-central Guilford County, North Carolina. The first three generations, based on preliminary research in Germany, should be regarded as provisional.
