ALBERT PRICE, of Boone County, Ky., (deceased), was a large dealer in
real estate, and at the time of his death owned over $500,000 worth of
real estate in Chicago, and over 1,500 acres of best land in Kentucky.
He was born in Fayette County, Ky., March 14, 1822, and was a son of
Williamson Price, an early settler of the State. Two Price brothers
came to this country from England, and from one of these Albert Price
descended, while the great Confederate general, Sterling Price, was a
descendent of the other. Albert Price's mother was Nanny Starks.
Albert Price was brought to Boone County when young, by his parents,
and lived with them until they died a few years later. He became a
member of the Christian Church when quite small, and was a most active
member, and so continued until his death, doing great and good work in
that way; spent most of the years of early life traveling, and made a
trip to Cuba. March 12, 1844, he was united in marriage with Frances
Southers, a daughter of Ezekiel and Matilda (Yager) Southers, natives
of Virginia, who were among the first settlers of Boone County, Ky.
Albert Price received his education at Bethany College, Virginia. He
was a prominent agriculturist or planter, and, perhaps, one of the most
extensive ones in Boone County, and a large slave owner. To Mr. and
Mrs. Price four children have been born--three sons and one
daughter--William E., Andrew B., William A. and Ann M. Mrs. Frances
Price was born in Boone County, Ky., July 20, 1827. Her father,
Ezekial Southers, was born December 15, 1800, in Madison County, Va.,
and his wife, Matilda, was born November 6, 1806, in Campbell County,
Ky. Albert Price died at Florence, Boone County, Ky., October 13,
1874. He was a great and influential man in political affairs, as well
as in other respects; his standing in every way was the best and
highest.
