Kathy's List
Bozeman, Anderson, Brack, Sellers, Doty, McClain, Moon, Sellers, Stephens, Hill, Goodson, Flinn, Carter, Family Connections...
Peter Bozeman had 3 daughters in 1810, Lucy married Sterling Campbell, one might have married Vincent Joiner, or Howell Mason or Edmund Lewis, but Vincent Joiner is the only one signing the Estate petition by the widow Sarah. Then we see a David Campbell as Justice of the Peace on later documents and a John Hill signed affidavit for Nancy Jane Anderson Bozeman to get her husband's Civil War Pension.
Sarah and Peter's son Jesse may have been an attorney and filed many court documents as the family members passed away.  He handled his father's estate sale and many familiar names made purchases.  In 1838 he sold his parent's land, land which I cannot find a deed for, but it was divided among the heirs which did not include Sarah's son Meady because he might have died before they made the journey to Alabama or soon after.  Meady's children were raised by Vincent Joiner and Ellen.
Jesse named a daughter Ellen.
Am led to believe that Peter had a brother named Jesse who also served with him in the American Revolution, thus naming his own son Jesse M. Bozeman in 1793.  Peter's brother John went to Mississippi while their younger brother James remained in Darlington to raise his family.
Peter also named a son Peter E Bozeman who married Gilly.   Peter's other son was William Henry Bozeman who married Martha Hill in Darlington.
Jesse Bozeman handled the estates for both widows Gilly and Martha.
Many of these died young, perhaps due to the flu epidemic or other diseases that wreaked havoc upon our nation.
There are many documents to confirm the Bozeman Trail into Alabama.
This creates new trails of new family members and other relations into the Carter and McClain families of my lineage, which include Fenn, Fann, Stone, Hendrick, Wells, Lyles, Cochran, Coonfield, Crigler, Little, Miller, Henderson, Long, Sturgeon, Parker, Sweet, Tefft, and then the Brooks lineage of Thornton, Partridge, Hood, Baxter, Baxley, Smith, Connelly, Craig, Dickson, Bond and Ballard.
Thus I end up with 16,000 in my family tree and a maize of webpages in my collection.

    Elijah Lee and Andrew Cooper of South Carolina born 1770s brought their families to Chambers County Alabama, former Creek Indian Lands, before 1840.  It has been said that Elijah paid an indian directly for his land.  Elijah had married Malinda Phillips of Green County Georgia and some believe the Phillips were of indian blood.  Andrew Cooper may have also married an indian woman named Alsey and her last name had never been discovered.  On the 1840 census Alsey appears to be widowed with children. 1840 shows Elijah Lee living near a John Phillips. The Alabama Land Records show that Elijah bought land in 1823 so it was long before the Trail of Tears. ( note ) ( MORE0

    The Lees are buried at the Old Harmony Baptist Church cemetery and the graves of the Coopers are not yet found. Aunt Sissy says that grandpa Levi Cooper is buried by his sons at a church cemetery in Cecil, Alabama.  They had resided in Whitehall according to Aunt Sissy.  She and her son Butch have been a great help!
    Descendant Susie Mae Cooper Brooks is buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Montgomery Alabama.  Her descendant Charlie Brooks is buried at Brookside Memorial in Millbrook, Alabama.
    Charner P Cooper, son of Andrew, married Sarah F Lee, daughter of Elijah, and their son Levi Benjamin Cooper married Sarah Elizabeth Carter, a daughter of Thomas Randolph Carter and Mary Josephine Hereford of Virginia. Mary had a beautiful complexion, black eyes and black hair. The grave of TRC born 1820 was found in Hope Hull, Montgomery, Alabama by his first wife, Lacy Jane Bozeman and I really appreciate my daughter driving us through that cow pasture to find that little cemetery hidden behind the pond, and it really deserves a historical marker.
    The Bozemans came from South Carolina and NC 1700s moving into Alabama as some of the Indian Tribes moved west in the early 1800s.  Lacy's father Jesse's headstone shows that he was born 1793.  Apparently Jesse had been married twice . Many legal documents exist in Montgomery County regarding the Bozeman families.

    Jesse Bozeman was the brother of William Henry Bozeman and administrator of his Estate.  Their father was Peter Bozeman of Darlington South Carolina who served in the American Revolution along with his own father, Mordecai Bozeman.  Peter and his wife Sarah, had moved their families into Alabama about 1820 and they are probably buried in Hope Hull, Montgomery County, Alabama. Several Bozemans were buying land in Alabama in the 1820s and 1830s.
    Just  imagine the many wagon trains flowing in..

    William Henry named his sons, Meady, Peter Edward, and John Thomas Bozeman.  John's descendant, Jimmy Ray has assisted with this research.  Meady's descendant Wayne and his wife Sue Carol have also assisted.  Wayne and Jimmy have had many years of genealogy work before me and were so kind and proud to share with a new cousin.
    *Thomas Carter was the son of  John Wise Carter who some say was buried in Talladega Alabama.  John was born 1792 South Carolina, the son of Elizabeth Wise and Captain John Carter who may have served in the War of 1812 and the American Revolution. John bought land in Alabama in 1821.
    Susie Mae Cooper's husband was James Edgar Brooks Sr and their son was James Jr.  The parents of James came from Tennessee with the railroad and they resided downtown Montgomery Alabama near the Union Station.  They were Annie Clark Ballard and John Brooks, all buried at Greenwood.  John's father was also named John, born in Pennsylvania to Dutch parents.  He was found in the 1860 census of Giles TN, the same year he met and married Roxanna Permilia Smith.note  Our cousin Clarence and his mother Sissy have assisted with this research and contributed to the Montgomery Cemetery research with his survey of Carter-Stokes cemetery in Hope Hull, which should be appropriately named Carter and Bozeman Cemetery.
    The Smith families connect to a Captain John Smith of Virginia.
    The Ballards were previously in the Carolinas, as were the Bond, and Ward families.
    James Edgar Brooks Jr married Mary Ella Thornton and had a son named Charles in Montgomery Alabama.   He also worked a while with the railroad while living on Hull Street near my grandpa Fenn but the Brooks soon moved to Millbrook and had a huge garden and seven boys and one daughter.  Mr Brooks became an exterminator for a few years before he joined the John Deere dealership.  They are buried in Prattville by their son Johnny. *letter*
    Mary Ella's parents were Bessie Mae Hood and Milton Elijah Thornton and they are buried in Slapout/ Holtville,  in Elmore County AL at the Cain's Chapel Cemetery near many other family members.
    Elijah's parents came from Georgia,  Mary Angeline Partridge and George Thornton; we found their graves behind an old primitive Baptist Church in Central, Elmore, AL on the way to the Lake.Mary Ella's sister, Lorraine said that Mary Angeline was an indian and my daughter took me to the Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in Central to locate those headstones.
    Bessie's parents were Ella Olivia Baxley and Allen Wesley Hood but his headstone has an L W on it.  His parents are hard to trace and prove.  Hers were James and Marnda Baxley of Cold Spring, Elmore, AL and thus begins the brick wall in our research.
    Charles Brooks married Kathy Cochran, daughter of Anne Carter and Frankie Cochran.
    *Anne Carter was the daughter of Alice Emma McClain and Cecil Earl Fenn Carter.
    Frankie Cochran was born in Kansas a son of Luella Coonfield of Arkansas and Frank Delbert Cochran.
    Alice McClain's parents were Lorena Emma Bozeman and Charles Allen McClain of Ramer, Montgomery County, Alabama.  The parents of Charles were Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain ( Civil War Soldier of GA).  Josiah's ancestors were Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain of Virginia 1700s.  Josiah's father James was found in Alabama on the 1860 census and had possibly married an indian named Anna.  The Broadways came out of South Carolina and Elizabeth's father Abner had married Mary Susan Stephens of Alabama.

    Lorena's parents were Alice Stephens and John Thomas Bozeman.  Alice Stephen's great great grandfather John Stephens had married a full blood Cherokee in North Carolina and began a journey to Alabama where many of his grandchildren settled in Ramer.

    Parents of John Bozeman were Nancy Jane Anderson and Peter Edward Bozeman. Peter was the son of William Henry Bozeman.  Our Bozeman family says that Peter Edward is buried behind the Hills Chapel Church in the woods where there was once a cemetery many years ago.

    Nancy's parents were Lavinia Jane Sellers and Seaborn Anderson. Lavinia's sister married a Cooper.  Seaborn Anderson's ancestors and his father Elijah had settled in Lowndes County before moving to Montgomery, Alabama.  Elijah's parents were Lavinia Brack and Elisha Anderson who's Will is located at the Montgomery County Archives. This line connects to the Mayflower's Edward Lavinia Brack's mother was Hester Doty, a daughter of Benajah Doty and Elizabeth Farr.
    Cecil's parents were Anne Lou Stone and William Frank Fenn of Bullock County Alabama. Tracing back to Michael Stone of Maryland and William Stone of Virginia. Some of the Fanns were Indian Traders into Georgia before settling in Alabama.
    Luella Coonfield's parents were married in Arkansas, Lattie Cedonia Little of KY and Benjamin Wallace Coonfield of ARK
    Frank Delbert's parents were Clora Jane Miller of Iowa and Jacob Benjamin Cochran of Ohio who settled in Kansas.  Jacob had six daughters by his first wife, Mariah, who would also be related. 1880 census shows he had  a grandson named Frank by one of those girls.   MORE ...alagenweb  Lorena   List    FTM
    The Cochran and Coonfield lineage of the midwest.  Alexander Cochran raised his family in Pennsylvania and soon settled into Ohio, possibly Quakers, with several sons joining the Civil War and even living in California during the Gold Rush.  Later these young men moved to Iowa to farm the new land, and after several years, Jacob Benjamin Cochran moved to Kansas with second wife Clora Jane Miller, a daughter of Mary Clara Parker.  Family lore is that Mary shared medicine with the indians and research shows that her ancestors were in the 1600s and 1700s New York Indian Country as well as Mass  and Rhode Island, with one cousin, Joshua Tefft was killed by King Phillip.  One Mr Sweete was banned from England as a Catholic Priest and lived in exile in France.

    As far as documenting the Cochran lineage, I have none beyond Jacob to prove the names of his parents or grandparents.  Locating a census record or a will or more would help  to prove this lineage.  Perhaps Jacob told his children about his parents but reading the census records, I can safely say there were dozens of Williams, Alexanders, and Jacob Cochrans in Pennsylvania and Ohio and even those who migrated to Iowa Territory. Apparently William Cochran married Martha Henderson in Ohio and had Jacob.

    Fortunately for many other lineages, those before us have done a lot of research that I can go back and verify for myself leaving reason to believe most of what I can see.

    Isaac and Barsheba Clark Coonfield spent many years in early Kentucky and then moved to Indiana with their grown children. She was found widowed on the 1830 census. Her son Isaac Benjamin Coonfield moved his family to Arkansas. This family is mentioned in the book of the Early History of Morgan County Indiana.  Benjamin Wallace Coonfield married Lattie Cedonia Little and they had Amy, Ruth and Luella Coonfield.  Amy married Joe Gray and I had corresponded with their daughter Verna, who forwarded copies of her late sister's research ( Dorline Gray ) who was trying to connect this lineage to Chief Powhatan.

     Dorline had also been corresponding with our cousin Martha in Arizona, who also shared a great amount of research with me regarding L P Little.  L P Little had a great way of leaving a trail of his elders by giving each child a middle name of one of his ancestors and I am honoring him and his work by writing about him on the Kentucky webpage.

    Arkansas land records indicate that Isaac Coonfield bought land in 1856.

    Hiram Lucius Little, son of Betsy Douglas and Jonas Little, had lost his wife, Catherine Wright, in Kentucky and moved to Texas.  His son John Little served in the Civil War as a blacksmith, married, had several children, lost his wife and then moved his family into Arkansas.  Our grandma Betsy was found widowed and living with her daughter Betsy Roberts on the 1850 census.

    Hiram Little married Rebecca Isabella Adams in Bosque County Texas and had more children including a Hiram jr.  Most are buried at the Meridian Cemetery. Hiram's headstone refers to him as a doctor and a mason.

    Apparently some of the brothers of grandpa Jonas had already removed to Texas by 1800 and our Hiram had joined them.  Our Texas migration needs further study.

    Betsy Douglass Little had another son named Douglass Little who married Martha Ann Wright, his sister in law. Martha named her first son, Powhatan and he was a lawyer, and a judge, who was a great writer and did a lot of research on his lineage;  as did his daughter, Laura Simmons Little.  They traced Mary Handley to parents Martha Mason and George Handley of Ireland, noting that Mary was born asea, on the trip over. Mary's brother was Captain John Handley.  Their notes also chart a Thomas Jones settling in the 1600s on James River in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico County, Virginia and wrote about a Polly Jones who may have been the wife or companion of Charles Weatherford.

    Mother of the Wright sisters was Catherine Weatherford, a daughter of Charles Weatherford in Charlotte VA.  Alabama land records indicate land sold to Charles in 1841 if this is his grandson by Red Eagle. So far records only indicate one Charles Weatherford born in this time period and it is quite possible that he had more than one wife than history would like for us to believe and if he was indian trader, he probably had many children that have not been noted.  History also indicates that the father of Red Eagle was from Scotland, and a his grandson on the creek indian mailing list says that Charles fathered many children with many women and then went back to Scotland but we may never know the facts.  Some family trees indicate that Charles was the son of Martin Weatherford and an indian woman called Mary in Charlotte Virginia who migrated to Georgia and I did find documentation in the Georgia Archives onlne that show Martin was a wealthy planter and it mentions nothing at all about Scotland.  Martin was a loyalist, very outspoken and the state of Ga banned him so he moved his family to the Bahamas and more documentation is found to prove that.

    Laura  Little joined the DAR and had a monument dedicated to her great grandfather, Captain George Little in Kentucky.  Laura's granddaughter, Martha, in Arizona has assisted with this research. Laura had studied the Weatherfords, Wrights and Chief Powhatan.  Laura had joined the American Genealogical First Families. leaving a fantastic paper trail for her descendants to follow.

    Parents of Betsy were Mary Handley and Alexander Douglass who were married in PA. MMary's brother Captain John Handley became a surveyor like Daniel Boone and on one trip to the new land in Kentucky, before 1800, his brother in law, Alexander Douglass went with him and never returned.  Alexander was murdered by indians on his way back home.  His wife took her girls and moved into a scottish settlement in South Carolina, where her daughter married Jonas little. Later the father of Jonas, George Little, married his son's mother in law.  Both had become widowed but they had no children together that we know of.

     Ironically there was an older Jonas Little in South Carolina, who's descendants moved southward and into Alabama and we can only suspect there may be some connection to George.  The 1790 census of Newberry, Union, South Carolina shows George with a housefull of children but it also shows others around his home named Jonas, Joseph, William and John who could also be his Scottish siblings.  Some of those came through Alabama and Texas but it is hard to configure.

    Hiram Little's son was John Wright Little who married a Mary Catherine Crigler. John lived with her family before the marriage, with her parents Catherine Roby and Abraham Crigler.  

    Abraham's parents were Lydia Carpenter and Owen Crigler.  Catherine's parents were Kitty Simmons and Reason Roby.  These families left Virginia to settle in the new land of Kentucky about 1800 among friendly indians who were also migrating westward.

    John and Mary were beautiful, dark complected, had black eyes and black hair and they had Cherokee blood.

    The Battle of Alamo lists a soldier named Hiram Little and there is a possible connection to our lineage as some of the decendants are found in Texas census records. and one receiving a land grant in Texas.

    Much of my research is being added to AND PAGE TWO

    Descendant of all of these was Frankie Lavern Cochran born 1927.and Kathy Cochran who was born in Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Oklahoma later moved to Montgomery Alabama after spendng a few years in Arizona.  Frankie had dark hair and blue eyes like his father and his younger pictures resemble his father, but as Frankie aged, he resembled his grandpa Coonfield very much.  Pictures of Catherine Crigler and then those of the Coonfield women show us they all had long dark hair in braids and dark eyes.  Luella Coonfield and her mother in law Clora Jane both smoked pipes.  The pipes are in the possession of cousin Stanley.

    Aunt Irma talked of granny Clora Jane Miller Cochran being a sweet old lady who stayed with them for a while when grandpa Jacob died.  Clora stayed with each of her children, taking turns, as she had no place to go.  She taught them about corn and how to pop it.  She mysteriously read the ashes of her pipe.  Aunt Irma was the child born with a veil over her face.  The doctor removed the veil twice as it seemed to grow back and on the third veil, her mother Luella took it and placed it in the Bible where it still exists to this day.

      Frankie's sisters have assisted with this research.  There are many documents, pictures, census records, letters marriage licenses, death certificates, land records, wills, and our other research  
    Annie Carter as a baby being held by her Uncle Walton McClain shows us how very dark the McClain boys were just like their father with black eyes and black hair so it is
    quite possible that the McClain lineage was of indian blood. Annie 's school picture shows that she had long straight black hair and black eyes, even though she had it curled up in this photo of her in 1953 pregnant with Kathy in Tulsa OK.

    Looking at Annie's grandmother, Lorena Bozeman's lineage, I wondered repeatedly about her father's name, John Thomas Bozeman, and how it may have originated.  His great  grandfather Peter married a widow, Sarah Brown and she named her first son Meade so that may have been her maiden name; then a son was named William Henry and that could have been her father's name;  so looking back at the 1790 census of South Carolina, I do find a William Meade and a Thomas Meade  so this may be another clue in our mystery of names.  We know that William Henry Bozeman might have been the first to name a son John Thomas Bozeman and wonder where the name Thomas came into play.

    Digging through  mom's letters and cards, I found an article from the newspaper of 1956 that listed Lorena McClain having surgery at Maxwell AFB hospital and later found that grandpa McClain had served in WWI.  The article also listed Anne Cochran and family were relocating to Mesa Arizona and it listed her cousin James Duncan was going to San Antonio.  These were found in Anne's old blue diaper bag that she used in Mesa AZ and brought back with her to Montgomery Alabama.

    Arizana is a small memory in my mind.  We had a lot of burritos and enchildas that mom cooked, took pictures in the desert and grand canyon, went swimming in the Verde River, Coonsbluff,  and drove thru well lighted mountain tunnels.  Most of our friends and neighbors were indian or mexican and we spoke a little spanish that I have long since forgotten.  My cousin Frankie Haraughty was a daily playmate since his mom Eunice Cochran lived nearby. We played with, horned toads , strange bugs and creatures of the land and watched the daily irrigation of the fields when our front ditches filled with water every afternoon at 4. Frankie's brother Frances was called Chigger by my dad.  Chigger was the one making home movies of us  back then.

    One of Lorena Bozeman 's distant cousins married a Jordan which is a line leading directly to Pocahontas and some of the Jordans settled in Elmore County.  Lorena's uncle Peter Bozeman married a Dillard and that line also connects to Pocahontas.

    Cousin Elizabeth helped with the Bozeman lineage as her grandmother Ethel was the sister of my great granny Lorena. Ruby Gibson told me that Charles McClain and Jason Gibson were cousins and we connected their mothers as Broadway children of Abner Broadway and I verified through census records. One of the Gibsons had marched in Governor Wallace's inaugural parade.  Ruby also told me that my grandfather Cecil Carter was still in the military when he married my granny Alice McClain but I have not been able to verify.

    We do not know if there were any suvivors benefits for Cecil's children as Lorena Bozeman McClain raised them but do know the McClains left Ramer and lived on Highland Avenue for a while.  Cecil's adoption records have not been found, but his children knew of his Fenn family and I have contacted some of the Fenn relatives.

    Cousin Martha Fenn had only a few blurred pictures of Cecils' siblings and told me where Uncle Frank and Uncle Robert were buried in Coosada, Elmore County, AL.

    Her brother, my cousin Bob Fenn, talked about his family on the farm there is Coosada.

    I found another cousin, Nancy Fenn, in Montgomery, who connects to the Mathew Fenn who owned the plantation in Eufaula.

    Our great grandfather William Frank Fenn had married Anna Lou Stone and his great grandfather Michael Stone came to Alabama from Maryland.  There is a Banister Stone in my McClain / Moon family of South Carolina but I have not made any connection;  then my husband's lineage in Tennessee has a Catherine Stone of the Carolinas who married John Baptist Bond.

    Michael Stone had married Polly Wells in Putnam, Georgia and they are found on a census living in a Captain John Stone's District.  Their son Benjamin  Wilburne Stone married Sarah Davies and had Augustus Marvin Stone.  Augustus married Mary Ann Hendrick, a daughter of Mary Ann Winters and John Hendrick.  The 1850 census of Macon County Alabama shows us Michael living next to son William and son Benjamin with their children's names listed.

    Anna's brother was Arthur Augustus Stone and his son was William Arthur Stone, known as Tige to the St Louis Cardinals of 1923.

    The obituary of grandpa Cecil lists a Walter Stone as a pallbearer.  His death certificate is signed by his brother Emmett Fenn.  Cecil is buried at Memorial Cemetery in Montgomery and Emmett is buried at Greenwood by their father.  Their father's brother Madison is buried by them without a headstone.  Madison was known as Uncle Mat.  Uncle Mat had married  and moved to Texas and never had any children, but came back to Montgomery after his wife died.  Mat's brother Thomas had
    also gone to Texas.

    After taking pictures of their headstones at Greenwood, getting close to the exit I discovered the Bozeman family plot, with Nancy Jane Anderson Bozeman buried by her sons Robert and Meady and their families.

    My husband's great grandparents Annie Clark Ballard and John Brooks of Tennessee are also buried at Greenwood by Susie Mae Cooper brooks.   I would love to learn more about those TN families who had migrated from the Carolinas, during a time of indian removal . Indian Wars also caused many friendly indians to move westward..Annie Ballard was a beautiful dark featured lady who only had one child. Mary Josephine Hereford was from Virginina and her family all moved into Alabama and she wa also another beautiful dark featured lady.
    After the Revolutionary War, the U.S. Government established laws to survey and sell land gained from Britain. The area that became Alabama was originally part of the Mississippi Territory from 1798 to 1817. Many settlers arrived in the area before government lands had been surveyed. Unable to buy, they simply picked a location, built a cabin, cleared fields, and put in crops. Such families were called squatters. Land laws were passed to provide legal title to land for settlers who already lived on the land. Some settlers claimed land by British or Spanish land grants, and others were squatters who claimed land by right of pre-emption.

    Starting in 1804, U. S. Land Offices were established to sell land in the area which would become Alabama. By law federal land was sold to the highest bidders at public auctions. Alabama sales attracted men from all over the nation, many of them speculators. Groups of speculators bought large tracts, sometimes for as little as $10 an acre, then resold at $20 to $100 an acre. When an auction ended, poorer migrants could buy less desirable land for as little as $2 an acre. The smallest amount one person could buy was 160 acres. Under the Land Law of 1800 a purchaser could put one-fourth down and pay the rest off over three years. But when the price of cotton fell to eighteen cents a pound, few could meet payments on land bought at inflated prices. By 1820, Alabama owed the federal government $11 million--more than half of the national land debt. In 1820 and 1821 Congress passed new laws to deal with this problem. The Land Law of 1820 required future buyers to pay the entire amount in cash but lowered the minimums to $1.25 an acre and 80 acres. Those already in debt were aided by the Relief Act of 1821 which permitted them to keep part of their land and return the rest to the government or buy it all on the installment plan at reduced rates

    Introduction to the Settlement Unit:

    The defeat of the Creek Indians opened the heartland of Alabama to white settlement and caused Alabama fever to sweep the nation. Pioneers by the thousands left Tennessee, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia seeking fertile land for growing cotton. Mississippi territorial law was in place, but when Mississippi became a state, Congress created the Alabama Territory in 1817. Congress designated St. Stephens as capital of the Alabama Territory and approved a legislature of Alabama delegates already elected to the old Mississippi territorial legislature. William Wyatt Bibb, a Georgia physician who had served in the United States Congress and had powerful friends in Washington, was named Territorial governor. He was also elected as the first governor when Alabama became a state December 14, 1819. He helped establish the government, pass laws and administer justice. The following documents deal with cost of government, land speculation, cotton, and law as settlers poured in the area during the early settlement of Alabama.
    At the start of the 19th century, Indians still held most of present-day Alabama. War broke out in 1813 between American settlers and a Creek faction known as the Red Sticks, who were determined to resist white encroachment. After General Andrew Jackson and his Tennessee militia crushed the Red Sticks in 1814 at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in central Alabama, he forced the Creek to sign a treaty ceding some 40,000 sq mi (103,600 sq km) of land to the US, thereby opening about three-fourths of the present state to white settlement.

    From 1814 onward, pioneers, caught up by what was called "Alabama fever," poured out of the Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky into what Andrew Jackson called "the best unsettled country in America." Wealthy migrants came in covered wagons, bringing their slaves, cattle, and hogs. But the great majority of pioneers were ambitious farmers who moved to the newly opened area in hopes of acquiring fertile land on which to grow cotton. Cotton's profitability had increased enormously with the invention of the cotton gin. In 1817, Alabama became a territory; on 2 August 1819, a state constitution was adopted; and on the following 14 December, Alabama was admitted to statehood. Alabama, then as now, was sparsely populated. In 1819, its residents comprised 1.3% of the US population. That percentage had grown to only 2% in 1980.

    During the antebellum era, 95% of white Alabamians lived and worked in rural areas, primarily as farmers. Although "Cotton was king" in 19th-century Alabama, farmers also grew corn, sorghum, oats, and vegetables, as well as razorback hogs and cattle. By 1860, 80% of Alabama farmers owned the land they tilled. Only about 33% of all white Alabamians were slaveowners. Whereas in 1820 there were 85,451 whites and 41,879 slaves, by 1860 the number of slaves had increased to 435,080, constituting 45% of the state population. Large planters (owners of 50 slaves or more) made up less than 1% of Alabama's white population in 1860. However, they owned 28% of the state's total wealth and occupied 25% of the seats in the legislature. Although the preponderance of the wealth and the population in Alabama was located in the north, the success of Black Belt plantation owners at forging coalitions with industrialists enabled planters to dominate state politics both before and after the Civil War. The planters led the secessionist movement, and most other farmers, fearing the consequences of an end to slavery, eventually followed suit. However, 2,500 white Alabamians served in the Union Army, and an estimated 8,000?10,000 others acted as Union scouts, deserted Confederate units, or hid from conscription agents.

    Alabama seceded from the Union in January 1861 and shortly thereafter joined the Confederate States of America. The Confederacy was organized in Alabama's senate chamber in Montgomery, and Jefferson Davis was inaugurated president on the steps of the capitol. Montgomery served as capital of the Confederacy until May, when the seat of government was moved to Richmond, VA.

    Remote from major theaters of war, Alabama experienced only occasional Union raids during the first three years of the conflict. In the summer of 1864, however, Confederate and Union ships fought a major naval engagement in Mobile Bay, which ended in surrender by the outnumbered southern forces. During the Confederacy's dying days in the spring of 1865, federal troops swept through Tuscaloosa, Selma, and Montgomery. Their major goal, Selma, one of the Confederacy's main industrial centers, was left almost as heavily devastated as Richmond or Atlanta. Estimates of the number of Alabamians killed in the Civil War range from 25,000 upward.

    During Reconstruction, Alabama was under military rule until it was readmitted to the Union in 1868. For the next six years, Republicans held most top political positions in the state. With the help of the Ku Klux Klan, Democrats regained political control of the state in November 1874.

    Cotton remained the foundation of the Alabama economy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, with the abolition of slavery it was now raised by sharecroppers?white and black landless farmers who paid for the land they rented from planters with the cotton they harvested. Alabama also attempted to create a "New South" in which agriculture would be balanced by industry. In the 1880s and 1890s, at least 20 Alabama towns were touted as ironworking centers. Birmingham, founded in 1871, became the New South's leading industrial center. Its promoters invested in pig iron furnaces, coal mines, steel plants, and real estate. Small companies merged with bigger ones, which were taken over, in turn, by giant corporations. In 1907, Birmingham's Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railroad Co. was purchased by the nation's largest steelmaker, US Steel.

    Another major Alabama enterprise was cotton milling. By 1900, 9,000 men, women, and children were employed in Alabama mills; most of these white workers were farm folk who had lost their land after the Civil War because of mounting debts and low cotton prices. Wages in mills were so low that entire families had to work hours as long as those they had endured as farmers.

    Around Thanksgiving of 2006 my daughter and I found the Bozeman graves at Hope Hull by following directions of Jimmy Ray Bozeman and later contacted cousin Wayne Bozeman in Santuck to read his copy of Sketches, then in May of 2007 we met Jimmy Ray in Dublin and another cousin Hazel Bozeman, daughter of Uncle Bob, plus the grandchildren of Ethel Mae Bozeman Gibson at Hills Chapel where John T Bozeman is buried;  We were led to the woods way behind the church to find the tombstone of John's father Peter Edward Bozeman.
    A few trips to cemeteries finding tombstones of relatives Charlie and I knew nothing about, I have saved several photos of those headstones on webpages and tried to write a little bit about those new discoveries.
    My mother didn't know much about her parents since she was orphaned at the age of 4 and raised by her mother's McClain parents.
    Once I had my family tree up and looking fabulous, I began on my late husband's family and found one of his cousins, Clarence Bearden, posting on the internet, doing the same thing with the Brooks lineage. I phoned Clarence and he sent me some research papers on John Brooks born 1837 and some pictures of Thomas Randolph Carter family.   Clarence's mother is my husband's Aunt Sissy, actually named Elizabeth Brooks and she had called my husband's daddy, Bubba.
    I never knew that before.
      I called Charlie's cousin, Sue Carol, about Mary Ella's lineage and found that her husband, Wayne Bozeman, was also my cousin, WOW !!  
    Sue Carol drove me and Beverly up to Central one day to see the tombstones of Mary Partridge and George Thornton, a couple of there great grandparents from Georgia, buried behind an old Primitive Baptist Church.
    Wayne and Sue Carol had dug deeply into his lineage and they were amazed with my Bozeman research.  They had been to the graves at Hope Hull, but so had Clarence Bearden and he had also published an article about his findings there on the Alabama Cemetery Preservation webpage.
    Beverly took me to Hope Hull and our findings were extremely fascinating and we took many pictures
    Then we went to Dublin to further our reearch and to Elmore County and I have many other pictures within.
    Beverly gave me a new computer for Christmas 2006 with a free subscription to and I have saved hundreds of old documents, and census images showing the tracks of our ancestors.
    Wayne loaned me his copy of a book written about the Bozemans and I have also scanned those pages into my research.
    I have posted my huge family tree on the internet to share at and there is another relative online researching the Brooks lineage of Tennessee and Alabama
    New relatives write to me all the time, I have dozens and dozens of emails from people asking for information, sharing their lineage, letting me know that we are related.
    I joined several genealogy mailing lists and message boards online and once tried to contact a Donna Burdette but her mother wrote back to me, being from the Bozeman line - Elizabeth is the granddaughter of Ethel Mae Bozeman, the sister of my great granny Lorena.
    Jimmy Ray Bozeman wrote to me and met me and Elizabeth at Dublin in May 2007, my daughter Beverly drove us there and we met a lot of Ethel Mae's family there and some elderly children of Uncle Bob Bozeman's family.  We explored the old family cemetery way behind Hills Chapel Church, out in the woods and found the grave of Peter Edward Bozeman and his daughter in law Alice Lorena Stephens Bozeman.
    Peter's son John had been married to Alice.  Alice was our great great granny, rich with Cherokee blood.
    I can see how she named my great granny Emma Lorena Bozeman but where did she get the name for Ethel Mae.  Aunt Ethel had written a story about her parents, published in the Montgomery Advertiser around 1970.
    I asked these people at Dublin if they knew anything about Lorena 's husband Charlie McClain and they said he was a good man, cross eyed, and never had a tombstone.
    December 2007 a new cousin, Glenda, sends an email.  Cousin to my mother in law, she is a wonderful new friend.  We are researching Ella Olivia Baxley Hood and her parents of Holtville.  Beverly takes me to Coosa River Primitive Baptist Church cemetery where we find several family graves, Louisa Miranda Holt and James Hardie Baxley, of the Civil War and down the road at Cains Chapel Cemetery we find the grave of Ella and her husband L W Hood and their children, including "Bubber"  Bessie Mae Hood Thornton ( the mother of Mary Ella Thornton Brooks ).
    My mother was an indian and my father had some indian blood so I am certainly interested in all native american history, finding a lot being uploaded to
    My Dad's sisters are near 90 and well Bernice is 92 and they sent me information and pictures of the old ones and copies of their own genealogy worksheets, which have been very helpful with my Cochran lineage.  My grandpa Cochran was married to a Coonfield which has much indian history coming out of 1800s Kentucky, Civil War and travels across the nation.
    Several of my ancestors served in the American Revolution and the Civil War and I find it amazing to cross their names in our nation's history.
    Many books are written including a portion of our family; Grandpa Coonfield being listed in the history of Morgan County Indiana;  Grandpa Little in the DAR books and Kentucky History;  Sketches of Bozeman published in 1885 mentions Peter Bozeman moving to Alabama;  Stephens Ancestors book at Ramer Library written by a cousin Clyde Stephens who wrote to me a few years ago and sent a package of papers to my home for my research;  Fenn families in Georgia history and in the Early Settlers of Barbour County Alabama.
    Jimmy Ray Bozeman's daughter is currently working to get our Peter Bozeman recognized at the DAR which will open doors for many many Alabama Bozeman researchers.  Peter's son William Henry Bozeman has a large lineage here.
    Peter's son Jesse is the one found buried at Hope Hull.
    Everything I find is printed to my notebook and also saved on a webpage,

    Dream Catcher background with lots of my links

Obviously he got the land in Hope Hull Alabama but I have not found any type of Land Deed until this item shows that Peter did in fact own land in Alabama.

      his birth date is wrong, should be 1886 but it shows his wife as Lorena Bozeman. Charles was the son of Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain's who's families migrated from South Carolina into Georgia, then Alabama. Josiah descends from Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain of 1750s Virginia. Elizabeth Moon had named a son Josiah and his son James had married an indian woman called Anna - Anna had a son named Josiah. I have seen three different dates of birth for grandpa Charlie but they had very little education, some could not read nor write at all, so the numbers are often mixed up.

      Unknown connection but our Peter named a son Jesse so this could be a brother to our Peter in Darlington - there was a Jesse living two doors away from Peter in 1800 Darlington census. Peter's son was named Jesse M Bozeman and I can only suppose that M was for Mordecai and then can suppose it is possible that was also Peter's father's go back to the Jesse who served in the American Revolution and wonder if his middle initial was also M - could he have really been Peter's father living so close to him in 1800.............we may never know.
