Abstract:

Manuscripts, ca.1892, "A History of Montgomery County [Ala.] and Its Inhabitants", eighty handwritten pages, and "A History of the Mooney War as It Was Known at the Time", incomplete, six handwritten pages. The history of Montgomery Co. includes a geographical description of the county at its founding, the early educational efforts of Benjamin B. Lamar, early settlers and their families, such as Dr. Mitchell, Thomas Barton, Thomas Haynes, Dr. Robert I. Ware, James A. Ware, Major Green Wood, Joshua Hagerty, Abner McGehee, Chappel Sledge, Bernard Young, Larkin Cleveland, Aaron Livington, Parker Gray, George C. Ball, Alexander Selkirk, James Pinkston, and others. Also discussed was early education in the county, the first cotton gin in the county, which was established by James Rodgers, plantations, and store run by Walter B. Lucas and Henry Lucas, and other early settlers, including John Burch, Green Pinkston, John Ray, and John Ashurst. The early physicians in Montgomery Co. are also named in Chapter 3, as are several of the early ministers of the county. Many other individuals are discussed as well, almost every reputable person in the county of the first twenty years in fact. There is also a history of the Baptist Church in the county in the 1820's.

The history of the Mooney War (incomplete) describes a ca.1840 political feud in Montgomery Co., Ala., when B.W. Bell, a Whig, killed Col. Thomas Mastin, a Democrat, over a political disagreement at the end of a regimental muster south of Montgomery. This began a feud between the Mooneys, Democrats, and the Bells, Whigs, that led to a shoot-out in Montgomery, in which two men died, then a murder by a Mooney, and other assorted woundings, killings, and mayhem.
