My great great grand father Toste Michelsen was born 1804 and grew up on a farm in the Farup area of Ribe amt.
His father was Soren Michelsen 1767- 13 Aug 1828, Farup.
Is Albygaard the name of the area or the name of the farm??
and where was the farm located??

Thank you

Jeff Mikkelsen.

Hej Jeff

The -gaard in Aalbygaard means "farm". The modern Danish spelling would be "gård". Also, the name of the farm is now written Ålbygård. So, aa = å.
I found something for you in connection to your Søren Michelsen. I added translations:

Ålbygård, Kærbøl
Kærbøl Ejerlav #9a
(Kærbøl Land lot #9a)

Varde Hovedvej 25.

Mickel Sørensen (1810-)

Søn af Søren Mickelsen og Maren Christensdatter, Albye toft, sikkert her.
