Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy



This county is available for adoption.


We're looking for folks who share our desire to put data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it. If you are interested joining our group as County Host for this website, or any of our websites, view our Volunteer Information page.

A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a basic webpage is required.

In the meantime, we'd be very happy to accept any data you'd care to contribute and would like to see displayed on this site. We're looking for "raw data" - the birth/death/marriage records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other military data. Email your transcribed data to me Christine Walters and I'll take care of putting it online.

WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.

The eastern portion of this county is somewhat hilly, while the western part is level. The soil is generally very good, being a sandy loam, resting upon a clay subsoil. The county is well timbered, the western portion especially, containing much valuable poplar and white oak. These furnish the material for business in lumber and staves, which are rafted down the Forked Deer River, and find a market at New Orleans. The principal streams are the South and North forks of the Forked Deer River, the former of which is navigable. Alamo is the county seat, and hits a population of 276. Other towns are Bell's Depot, Friendship, Gadsden, Chestnut Bluff and Maury City.

The principal agricultural products are corn, wheat, oats, hay, cotton, Irish potatoes and sweet potatoes. Small fruits, such as strawberries, raspberries and plums, are cultivated in some localities, to considerable extent, and have proved highly remunerative. The principal religious denominations are, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians and Christians.
