Samuel was one of the first participants in the gold rush to California in 1849. He made the trip with a Mr. West (or Mr. Daves) who kept a diary which has been misplaced.
Samuel served in Company D 27th Reg. GA Volunteer Infantry Army of Tennessee during the Civil War. He entered the service from Hall County, GA as a Private, September 10, 1861. He surrendered in Durham, NC April 26, 1865. He was also a member of the Joseph E. Johnson Camp of Confederate Veterans.
According to an article by Mrs. Sybil McRay in the Daily Times, Gainesville, GA August 31, 1969, a history of C ompany D of the 27th Regiment, known as "Colquit's Brigade", it stated the company was formed in front of the Redwine Methodist Church on Poplar Springs Road in hall County in early 1861 of 115 men. Their last battle was in Bentonville, NC and they surrendered at Durham, NC April 26, 1865.
It is believed that Samuel W. Albertson was the son of Benjamine Samuel Albertson and Lucy (Hawthorne) Albertson.
