  1. I don’t like your donate to see a story.

  2. The article is all here on the post. I think it’s the complete 245-page book on the subject, which is free to read on Amazon Prime for Kindle. You have to subscribe to Amazon Prime to access the free book.

  3. I recognize at least 5 of those surnames as being names of some of my ancestors in Bibb County. I have some deep roots in Bibb County. I wish my grandparents and great uncles were still alive to tell some of their interesting stories.

  4. For two years I have been searching for the proof that Sarah Jay was the mother of William Wright (the father is Nathan Wright). iPLEASE tell me where you found the proof that William Wright’s mother was Sarah Jay.
    This is a direct ancestor line for me, and Sarah Jay’s grandfather is a DAR patriot.

  5. Always thought that our family migrated from SC to Alabama in the early 19th Century

  6. How does everyone conveniently forget all those places were actually located in Alabama and literally moved out of Alabama.

  7. What a gorgeous home out in what looks like nowhere.

    1. This is a picture of the first Bibb County, Alabama courthouse built in 1859. It was razed to make way for the new courthouse.

    2. Alabama Pioneers ..makes sense as a courthouse! Beautiful architecture in those days. Thanks for the added info.

  8. My great grandmother was a Creek indian and I busy researching Her family and getting very close

  9. Our Glasgow and McGee families immigrated from the Carolinas in the early 1800s. Alabama was new country.

  10. My family came from SC in early 1800’s.

  11. The Bolin family came from the Carolinas and settled in Lamar county in the 1840’s

  12. My ancestors descended. From over half of the barons who signed the magna charter
    They were tobacco barons related to kings and us presidents coming from Virginia to the carolinas then to Alabama
    Having been tabacco barons they came to Alabama growing King Cotton
    And I am glad they did
    Settling in Lamarr County and in the black belt
    I salute all of those Alabamians who came before us!!!

  13. Ours arrived with the earliest settlers, trudging along the Robert Trent Jones Trail.

  14. You could clean and enhance the picture a little. Only took me 10 seconds to make it much, much clearer.
