Welcome to Barbour County, Al. 

2011 marks the 16th year of Barbour County!  I have had the pleasure of connecting with and helping Barbour County researchers from the day this site was created.  I want to thank everyone who has helped and contributed to our site.  Without you this site would not be possible.  Barbour County is a beautiful place to live and visit.  I look forward to the years ahead and the growth of Barbour County.  Margie Daniels 10/2/2013

Many Barbour County citizens came from Georgia to Barbour County. I have placed the Mt. Paran Primitive Baptist Church minutes online at www.gloverfamily.com/mtparan/mtparan.htm I recognize many Barbour residents as being in these minutes.

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


Do you have any OLD news that is before 1932 about the residents of Barbour County if so please send it to me and I will add it to the site.  Margie Daniels

Greetings!   A few thoughts on Barbour County.  I have been hard pressed to "spruce up" the website to java and shock wave.  My decision is to keep this site as simple as possible.  Many people simply cannot afford new computers and are operating on the old operating systems.  I want everyone to be able to access this site and not have to sit forever to finally get a error page.  So I will keep the graphics as small as possible and pretty much keep to printed matter and simple graphics/photos.  This will allow everyone to research this site with ease and hopefully the pages will load quickly for everyone.  Margie Daniels 1/7/2011

Some pages updated 2/2/2015.  I don't always remember to add the dates pages are revised or updated.  I do add information as it becomes available to me.
I have deep roots in Barbour County and will always have a deep rooted interest in genealogy research and sharing that research with others.  I cannot research for others.
I transcribe records and also accept records others send to me to place on the site.  Good luck...Margie Glover Daniels
