    1. Thank you for the correction. It must have been a typo where I found the information.

  4. In Buck’s Al. There is a large stone marking the line, it’s called Ellicott stone.He was from Bucks,PA and I have often wondered if the spot on Hwy 43n was named after him. There’s an Alabama Power Generating plant there and that about it.
