Great grandpa Albert died at the Albion Hotel from a skull fracture. His eyesight was failing so he sold his farm and moved into the Albion while looking for a new place to live. After dinner he wanted to go for a walk and when he didn't return great grandma and the boys began searching for him. Albert was found the next morning at the bottom of the basement stairs. It is presumed he was going to the coat closet before setting out and inadvertently opened the basement door thinking it was the coat closet door.
