About Donna R Causey
Donna R. Causey, a native of Alabama, spent many years in the classroom teaching students with learning difficulties. Once she retired, she finally had time to follow her passion for discovering little-known or forgotten gems of history.
Donna developed the websites (alabamapioneers.com) and (daysgoneby.me) to share and preserve the treasures she found. These websites led to publishing books with her compiled information.
She ventured into the world of historical fiction with her first series, Tapestry of Love. The family's destiny continues in the second series, The Cottinghams, with Discordance.
"While studying the old, fragile paper trails left behind, it dawned on me that I was also creating my own legacy through the minor decisions I made each day and my descendants will have the advantage of technological stored data about me. I hope they will be proud of the legacy I am leaving behind."

As I conducted research for interesting stories to publish and/or post on my Alabama Pioneers website, I continually found buried genealogy information, such as marriages, deaths, etc. that I knew would be of great benefit to family researchers, but it was hidden so well that most search engines would not find it. I decided to collect this information rather than disregard it until I could decide how to best share it with researchers in Ebooks. This is volume 1 of these books.

The exhilarating action & subplots keep the reader in constant anticipation. It is almost impossible to put the book down until completion,Dr. Don P. Brandon, Retired Professor, Anderson University, Anderson, Indiana
This is the first book I have read that puts a personal touch to some seemingly real people in factual events.Ladyhawk
Love books with strong women...this has one. Love early American history about ordinary people...even though they were not 'ordinary'...it took courage to populate our country. This book is well researched and well written.Julia Smith

Not only is the story entertaining, it opens the eastern shore of the early Virginia Colony to the reader as a picture book....I know this story will touch many peoples' hearts.B. Thomas
At the age of sixteen, Mary and her husband, whom she barely knows, are forced to escape the only home they've ever known and settle in the primitive 17th century world of America where they shape their family's destiny for generations.
Inspired by actual people and historical events of colonial America, "The Kingdom of Accawmacke" is revealed and secrets about America's history are discovered in this well-researched series. The story begins in 17th century England during the reign of Charles I and continues a family's journey to the eastern shore of Virginia and Maryland.
Inspired by true events and the Cottingham family that resided in 17th century Somerset, Maryland and Delaware, colonial America comes alive with pirate attacks, religious discord, and governmental disagreements in the pre-Revolutionary War days of America.
Orphaned at an early age, the Cottngham siblings face pirate attacks, illness, injuries, and the disappearance of a loved as they try to establish their lives in the wilds of early America. Will they prevail or be torn apart over the issue of slavery?
As in the Tapestry of Love series, the author takes the reader back in time to the beginning days of America. DISCORDANCE: The Cottinghams will appeal to a wide-range audience.
The biographies of the head of households include: MARK SMITH; ANDREW THOMAS, JR.; ANDREW M. RUSSELL, SR.; JOHN COUNTS; MICHAEL MOWDY; JOHN FRAZIER; JOHN FREDERICK SHAFFER; GEORGE GASPER MONTS; JOHN POOL.

ALABAMA FOOTPRINTS Exploration

ALABAMA FOOTPRINTS Pioneers
ALABAMA FOOTPRINTS Confrontation
From the time of the discovery of America restless, resolute, brave, and adventurous men and women crossed oceans and the wilderness in pursuit of their destiny. Many traveled to what would become the State of Alabama. They followed the Native American trails and their entrance into this area eventually pushed out the Native Americans. Over the years, many of their stories have been lost and/or forgotten. This book (four-books-in-one) reveals the stories published in volumes I-IV of the Alabama Footprints series.
Before statehood, travelers to the future state of Alabama faced a formidable task as they threaded their way through the vast wilderness down paths of what was then mainly Native American land.
Until 1806, rivers and Native American trails were the only means of communication in the Alabama region, but in that year Congress provided for the construction of the first two roads, the Natchez Trace and the Federal Road.
Alabama Footprints: Settlement is a collection of lost and forgotten stories of the first surveyors, traders, and early settlements of what would become the future state of Alabama.
A Russian princess settling in early Alabama
How the early settlers traveled to Alabama and the risks they took
A ruse that saved immigrants lives while traveling through Native American Territory
Alliances formed with the Native Americans
How an independent republic, separate from the United States was almost formed in Alabama

While not an authoritative book on Henry Gay, since this is not my family line, this book includes all research I have discovered on Henry Gay's descendants in the hopes of assisting other researchers and providing some leads to beginning genealogists.
Don't waste time and money completing genealogy research others have done!
In my personal genealogy research, I often spent days in courthouses, libraries and cemeteries as well as considerable expense copying records only to discover that I was following in another researcher's footsteps. Sometimes I even discovered I was following the wrong path. I could have saved myself time, effort and a lot of money if I'd only known of this research earlier.
