ALBERG, John 

The Alberg Family story appears in the book:  A History of Shasta County, 1984. It is written by John Alberg's granddaughter, Julia Crosby Baker Edmonds, 1898 - 1990.

"John Alberg, a native of Sweden, and Sarah Reiner (or Reinborn, which was dropped) also a native of Sweden, met in Chicago and lived there where he worked in the railroad shops. Three children were born there, Alice, my mother, 1n 1870; Sally, and Charlie. They were living in a place called Kankeekee County at the time of the great Chicago fire when so much of the town was destroyed. They had much to tell about that happening.

The Albergs moved to California about 1874, settling on a place on Cottonwood Creek above Rainbow Lake. There another son was born, Bernard in 1875. They raised vegetables, mostly potatoes for sale and milked cows and made butter. Mr. Alberg, hoping to find a better living for his family went to the state of Oregon. While there he died suddenly and is buried there. The place is unknown to the family.

Mrs Alberg [Sarah] got work cooking at Mr. Prince Baker's sawmill on Hoover Creek where the boys grew up doing chores and learning the sawmill business. Her daughter, Sally, lived with a family named Voss near Ono and her daughter, Alice, stayed with Grandma Hubbard who ran a boarding house for miners on South Fork Creek above Igo.

While working for Mr. Baker, Mrs. Alberg took her citizenship papers to become a U S citizen, making the long trip by horseback to the county seat in the town of Shasta. [18 July 1888, Superior Court]

Neither of the Alberg boys married and Sally married a man named Venske and had three children. They lived on a place near Cottonwood.

Sarah Alberg, Sally Venske, Charlie and Bernard are buried in the Ono Cemetery. Alice, her husband Prince Baker, and little boy are buried at Igo." - Julia C. Edmonds

The Alberg Livestock Brand was recorded 29 Aug 1898 - the letters S A side by side disconnected, by Sarah Helen Alberg, Mrs John Alberg, Ono. Sons, Charles and Bernard continued the use of the brand.~
