Chambers County AL

Chambers County, Alabama, established on December 18, 1832, is strategically located on the eastern border of the state, adjacent to Georgia, with the county seat in LaFayette. This county’s history is deeply intertwined with the cotton plantation economy of the 19th century, significantly impacted by the Chattahoochee River which forms its eastern boundary and facilitated trade and transportation. Chambers County played a pivotal role in the industrial development of the region in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly with textile mills, which added a layer of economic diversity beyond its agricultural roots. For genealogists, Chambers County offers a wealth of historical records that are essential for tracing family lineages, including land deeds, court records, and vital statistics that reflect the county’s evolution through periods of economic boom and bust, the Civil War, Reconstruction, and into the modern era. The area’s demographic history, marked by a significant African American population both before and after emancipation, provides rich research avenues for those exploring African American genealogy and the broader social history of the South.

The 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, and 1885 censuses included inquiries about persons who had died in the twelve months immediately preceding the enumeration. The 1850, 1960, 1870, and 1880 mortality census for Alabama all survived. Mortality schedules list deaths from 1 June through 31 May of 1849–50, 1859–60, 1869–70, 1879–80, and 1884–85.
