[AL] Plantation Owners

Found this list of plantation owners from Alabama in a book titled "Slavery In Alabama" by James Benson Sellers. Most of the plantations did not have "formal" names but a few did and are listed. There is more info concerning the size and cost of plantations if you want further information. Going through the book now to see if there are any slaves listed by owners and will post if any found. If the formatting doesn't stay in place the plantation owner is listed then the county then plantation name if any:
