SOUTHERN BORN and SOUTHERN BRED

ROOTS DEEP IN DIXIE

On these pages you will find some of the earliest settlers to Walker, Fayette and Tuscaloosa Counties in Alabama. Many of their descendents live there still. Some of the lines go back thru Georgia, the Carolina's, Virginia and Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to all those early pioneers who endured hardships to help build this great country we call America. They never dreamed that their stories and histories would someday be available for viewing from coast to coast and from country to country. Much thanks to Lousie Pinion Wilson and the late Florence Knight Guttery who helped me so much years ago when I first started my research. Special Thanks to Vera Odie Earnest Knight and her daughter Katie Knight Kimbrell for all the stories and for their love. Two finer ladies never lived. They are with the Lord now and are dearly missed.
