Sometimes biographical information is hidden in old books

Sometimes biographical information about people in Alabama can be found in the strangest places. Many books are out-of-print so we are gathering information we find about individuals and publishing them in a series of books.

BIOGRAPHIES OF NOTABLE AND NOT-SO-NOTABLE: Volume VI is the sixth volume of a set of Biographies on Notable and Not-so-Notable Alabama Pioneers published by Alabama Pioneers.
