CSA Blue Springs Reunion

Many Barbour County citizens came from Georgia.  Crawford County, Ga., Mt. Paran Primitive Baptist Church minutes are now online at: www.gloverfamily.com/mtparan/mtparan.htm

I found my family and other surnames common to Barbour County listed in the minutes.

You may also want to check the other church minutes for Putnam Co., Ga. .

Where are these graves.

I have no real information, but I have a picture of two graves which my grandfather, Counce Monroe Hancock, identified as the graves of his grandparents, Josiah Hancock and Mary Goolsby Hancock. The graves are in Barbour County, but he did not know the exact location and was unable to travel there during his lifetime. I'm hoping to locate them some way, and perhaps you can help me. Anna

Barbour County was created on 18 Dec. 1832, from former Creek Indian territory and a portion of Pike County. Its boundaries were altered in 1866 and 1868. The county was named for Virginia Governor James Barbour.
Barbour County is located in the southeastern section of the state, bounded on the east by the Chattahoochee River and the State of Georgia. The county seat was established in Louisville in 1833, and moved to Clayton in 1834. Today Barbour County contains two courthouses - one in Clayton and one in Eufaula. Neighboring areas:
Be sure to check interlibrary loan for Barbour County records.  Check the Alabama Department of Archives for a complete listing of microfilm available for Barbour and the state of Alabama.

Historic Mansion on the bluff of the river in Eufaula.
Please send any information you have on this home and the cemetery 

I have had several different stories on this home some say it is the old Shorter mansion while other dispute that. I guess we will have to do a land search to determine the true history of this old mansion.  Whoever it belonged to, it is simply a beautiful home and a shame to be in the condition it is in.  This would make a lovely Bed and Breakfast

3/27/2006 I just received the news the property has been sold and will be divided into lots.  What a shame!  Does anyone know about the cemetery?
