Obituary Henry Alburty, Neosho Times, 9 February 1888. - "On Saturday, February 4th a residence four miles east of Ritchey, of pneumonia fever Henry Alburty departed this life at the ripe age of 72 years, 6 mos, and 19 days. Thus is another old landmark removed-another good man called home to his fathers. Uncle Henry, as he was famillarly called, was born in Surry county, N.C., in 1815; moved to Indiana in 1837, and married the same year to Miss Nancy Douthit daughter of Abraham Douthit. In 1840 he moved his family to Washington County, Ark., and in 1849 to Southwest Missouri, and settled on the place where he died last Saturday. He was an exception for honesty, integrity, courage and purity of purpose which go to make a noble citizen. Once before the war he had his house and every article of clothing for the family of four consumed by fire, when he commenced anew the battle of life. When the war was over he had the satisfaction of knowing that he had his family left him, his house being pilfered by jayhawkers seventeen times, and twenty three horses stolen. With an old broken down army horse he commenced life anew. He has gone to rest, beloved by all for his christian and orderly walk in life. He was buried at the Humphrey cemetery on Monday evening surrounded by a large concourse of relatives and friends. The Times extends it heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved family." Here is a quote from the 1888 Goodspeed History of Newton County, Missouri.

Ancestry of James F. Alburty
James F. Alburty, merchant, postmaster and hotel keeper at Ritchey, Mo., and one of the representative citizens of Van Buren Township, was born in America of Italian-German origin. Frederick Alburty (the name being spelled Allburthy in German, and Alberti in Italian), the great-grandfather of the subject of this sketch, and the founder of the American branch of the Alburty family was born in Italy, and immigrated to Poland, which became a German Province. He was a general in the German army, and in a duel with a German offcer [sic], killed his opponent, whereby he was compelled to flee to this country. He settled in North Carolina previous to the Revolutionary War, and was an officer in that struggle. After the war he carried on farming, and his son, Henry Alburty, also followed that pursuit, as did also his son Henry Alburty, the father of James F., the subject of this sketch. The father was born on the Yadkin River, North Carolina, July 15, 1815, was reared on the farm, and when a young man went to Indiana, where he married Miss Nancy Douthitt, daughter of Abraham Douthitt of Indiana. In 1840 Mr. Alburty moved to Washington County, Ark., where he remained two years and then came to Van Buren Township, Newton Co., Mo., settling on a farm which he had purchased of the government, and there passed the remainder of his days. . . .
