ALBRIGHT, Jacob, clergyman, born near Pottstown Pennsylvania, 1 May 1759; died in 1808. He was of German parentage (the name originally being Albrecht), and was brought up as a the-burner. Beginning a religious life in 1790, and being successful as an exhorter, he soon became a Methodist minister. He made many converts, almost exclusively Germans, and in 1800 a separate Church organization was created for them, Albright being their first presiding elder. He was appointed bishop in 1807. His denomination is now known as the "Evangelical Association," but in many places its, adherents are named "Albrights."
