Newspaper Abstracts from Pike County, Alabama 1855-1861, Volume 1


Pike County was created in 1821 from Henry County, Alabama. It is surrounded by the present day counties of Barbour, Bullock, Coffee, Crenshaw, Dale, and Montgomery counties.  Due to the many counties carved out of Pike County, (Bullock, Barbour, and Crenshaw Counties), this book will be extremely helpful for researchers looking for individuals in this southeastern portion of the state.  These newspaper abstracts were taken from the Independent American, a newspaper published in the town of Troy. Within this book, information will be found on deaths, marriages, administrative notices, murders, trials, hangings, and many, many other items of genealogical interest.
