  14. Great history of Alabama and Decatur County!

    My 3x great grandfather is Caswell Biby (Bibey); I’m attempting to locate where his property (referenced in the boundary adjustment documentation) would have been. Any assistance with a more exact location would be greatly appreciated! (as in where was Winchester Road, and are there any landowner plat maps that would have his parcel of land marked? I’ve not been able to find anything as yet)

    Thanks in advance!

    Kind regards,
    Sharon Biby
