Records of Walker County, Alabama. Inez Biggerstaff. Walker county was created in 1821 from Tuskaloosa and Marion counties. It is located in the Northern portion of the state and is surrounded by the counties of: Blount, Fayette, Jefferson, Marion, Tuskaloosa, and Winston. This area of Northern Alabama was a major route for persons migrating westward out of or through Tennessee and Georgia. Due to the fact that the records for this county are "DESTROYED" prior to 1871 makes this book as well as any other book on Walker County of extreme importance. Material contained in this book: 1840 Census, Lists of 1840 Tax Payers, Marriages 1879-1888, Pensioners from the War of 1812, Bible & Family records containing births, deaths, & marriages, and Cemetery Inscriptions from Not only Walker County but also neighboring counties of: Cullman, Fayette, Marion, Talladega, Tuscaloosa and Winston. 1959, (2019), paper, 202 pp.
