Walker County is a unique place inhabited by a unique people. Characters including George "Goober" Lindsey, Tallulah Bankhead, Sybil Gibson, and Eric "Butterbean" Esch, and communities including Cordova, Carbon Hill, and Day's Gap and Horse Creek-or as we know them today, Oakman and Dora-have all contributed to the county's rich history. In this volume of vintage postcard images, readers will learn how the town of Jasper avoided extinction, visit the old Walker County Courthouse that burned six times, and discover which town in Walker County began as Bald Eagle.

Waker County is located in the North Central portion of the state. It was created in the 1830's and was surrounded at the time by the counties of: Blount, Fayette, Franklin, Jefferson, Lawrence, Marion, Morgan, and Tuscaloosa. Large numbers of early pioneers passed through this portion of the state of Alabama on their way westward with numerious individuals staying on as settlers. The main bulk of this book is devoted to over 500 Biographical Sketches of these early pioneer settlers. Due to these vast numbers, we are unable to list these surnames at this time. This New Index that was specially compiled for this volume contains the names of over 7,300 individuals.

Locating original landowners in maps has never been an easy task-until now. This volume in the Family Maps series contains newly created maps of original landowners (patent maps) in what is now Walker County, Alabama, gleaned from the indexes of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. But it offers much more than that. For each township in the county, there are two additional maps accompanying the patent map: a road map and a map showing waterways, railroads, and both modern and many historical city-centers and cemeteries. Included are indexes to help you locate what you are looking for, whether you know a person's name, a last name, a place-name, or a cemetery. The combination of maps and indexes are designed to aid researchers of American history or genealogy to explore frontier neighborhoods, examine family migrations, locate hard-to-find cemeteries and towns, as well as locate land based on legal descriptions found in old documents or deeds. The patent-maps are essentially plat maps but instead of depicting owners for a particular year, these maps show original landowners, no matter when the transfer from the federal government was completed. Dates of patents typically begin near the time of statehood and run into the early 1900s. 364 pages with 98 total maps What's Mapped in this book (that you'll not likely find elsewhere) . . . 7079 Parcels of Land (with original landowner names and patent-dates labeled in the relevant map) 96 Cemeteries plus . . . Roads, and existing Rivers, Creeks, Streams, Railroads, and Small-towns (including some historical), etc. What YEARS are these maps for? Here are the counts for parcels of land mapped, by the decade in which the corresponding land patents were issued: DecadeParcel-count 1820s100 1830s724 1840s124 1850s2021 1860s1396 1870s76 1880s1315 1890s1032 1900s79 1910s179 1920s33 What Cities and Towns are in Walker County, Alabama (and in this book)?
