Metal Detecting in Mobile County Alabama

Metal Detecting
Mobile County Alabama
Railroads in Alabama
Tennessee and Alabama Railroad.—Company incorporated in 1832. Capital, $3,000,000, to be divided into shares of $100 each. It is known that a population of at least 200,000 already inhabit the counties bordering on the Upper Tennessee and its tributaries, and that they have no market, or outlet for their products, but the long, expensive, and almost impracticable route to New Orleans. The country embraces about 40 counties, in Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia; and it is not inferior in fertility to other portions of the States to which it belongs. The Hiwassee is a considerable stream, rising in the mountains of Georgia, and, running a north-westerly course, discharges itself into the Tennessee above the Suck.

French Treasure Ship Yet To Be Found

French Treasure Ship Yet To Be Found
In September 1724, a French merchant ship was located off the coast of present-day Alabama near present-day Dauphin Island.  The vessel was “La Bellone.” In her hold was stored a cargo of beaver skins, deer hides, tobacco, indigo and coins and bullion valued at 40,000 crowns. She was on her way to Dauphin Island to collect the yearly production of goods by the French colonials in Louisiana, and transport them to France. While trying to enter Pelican Bay, the Bellone ran aground.
