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."

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

As I conducted research for interesting stories to publish and/or post on my www.alabamapioneers.com 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.
After much contemplation, I decided that Kindle-books were the best option since the book could easily be searched through the search engines on Kindle, computers or electronic devices. This would eliminate the need for indexing a tremendous number of names.
This 8th volume includes genealogy information, Bible records, marriage and death lists, and other personal information from many counties in the State of Alabama.

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.
