Two of my family lines left Southeast Alabama after 1850 and were in the 1860 Choctaw co., AL census. The census indicated they owned $1200 worth of real estate at that time. By 1870, they were back in Southeast Alabama with no property. I am trying to determine why these familes moved to Choctaw county ca. 1860 and why they left by 1870. I have not found a record of a federal land patent for either of these men and know that a courthouse fire destroyed pre-1871 Choctaw county records. Does anyone know of an impetus for removing to this part of Alabama for the time period of 1850-1860?
