Tom was the son of Thomas Eaton Albergotti and Selina Washington McAlpin.

"Tom C. Albergotti, First Lieutenant, CSA, Hampton Legion's "walk in the sun" during the great American Civil War (1861 - 1865) covered the entire war from the very beginning until the end. He participated in many of the major battles of the war to include both Bull Run's, Seven Pines, Malvern Hill, Sharpsburg, Richmond, Petersburg, Knoxville and Lookout Mountain to name a few. He spent most of his entire military experience as an enlisted man of Infantry with Company A of Wade Hampton's Legion of South Carolina. He was born in 1835 and was a young man of 26 living and working in Charleston when caught up in the early days of the Rebellion. His odyssey through the war years is a story of victory, hardship, hunger, rain, mud, humor, death, honor, valor, wounds, horror, struggle, disapponintment and finally--defeat. Albergotti was a good soldier, in the bloom of youth and a true Son of the South. One of the tens of thousands who would follow him into the abyss of war where only a few of them would survive the war to become a builder of the new nation emerging like a Phoenix from the fire of our terrible Civil War."

After the war he married Julia Ella McKewn and raised two sons and two daughters. Tally McKewn, Mary Jeffords, Thomas Capers, and Julia Ella.
