Pioneer Families of Sumter County, Alabama
Nelle Morris Jenkins
This book begins with a historical background of the county and then moves into the genealogical records found in old Church records. One chapter is devoted to death notices in early newspapers, another chapter is devoted to Tract Book records, showing who entered the land and information about the family. But the main part is devoted to tombstone inscriptions. Almost every inscription is followed with details about the person’s family. In most cases the author was able to trace the families back to the Carolina's or Virginia.
