"I have him in 1866 and 67 in another County.Was slavery over in 1863 or 1865.I am trying to fill in those blank years right after the war. Anna"
If your kin or his children owned land try and obtain those transaction details. From what county did kin originate? Are there Federal Department of Transportation/relocation records available for your Alabama Counties?Is there a mention in The Acts of Alabama? Church membership records or other membership records may yield clues.
