You are visitor
since this page was created on
September 17, 2001. Last update: Sunday June 29, 2003.


This site was created to share free genealogical information about the NW part of the 1818 Alabama Territory that was originally called Greater Marion County, particularly those counties that are present-day Fayette, Lamar, Marion, Pickens, Walker & Winston Counties in Alabama, and Lowndes and Monroe Counties in Mississippi. Everything that you find on this site (linked or part of this site) has either been donated or is already available for free on the Internet. This site is a volunteer effort to help others researching their families, and anything put on this site will remain the property of the person who submitted it, including queries, etc. It will never be sold to anyone for publication without the permission of the submitter or donor!


In researching your ancestors, you may discover that many of them are found in one or more of the counties listed above, depending on the time period. Instead of searching the websites of each separate county for information, you now have a central place to locate information on relatives that may have lived in one or more of these counties!

Please come back and visit often - information will be added frequently! Sabra Newell Sudberry (former host of the Lamar County AlGenWeb site) has graciously lent her vast collection of church records, census records and indexes, marriage records and many other valuable documents from many of these counties for scanning and placement on this site. Thanks, Sabra! We all appreciate it!

Please do not request lookups from me as I would prefer to spend my available time scanning and adding documents to this site! Thank you for understanding! :)

If you have any documents or records that you would like to share through this site, please email me. If you find any errors or broken links, please let me know so that I can correct them! Thank you for helping to make this site the best it can be!

Allison Saxman, Webmaster
