State of Alabama, city of Lanett city - Chambers County early 1900's

Looking for any members with any knowledge of the city of Lanette, Alabama - Chambers County from 1870 - 1940's


So far I have discovered that the county was organized December 18th 1832 annexed from it's parent county "Creek Cession". In 1903 Chambers co. population was 6,235 and it's representative in the state legislature was a Democrat by the name of William Crawford Thomas.

My paternal 2nd Great Grandmother "Rena James" (widowed negro female born 1870) 1940 Census Registration is showing she lived in the city of Lanette but that is as much relative information that I can find for her. I would like to find a spouse if possible for her. Her daughter my paternal Great Grandmother "Irene Jones" (negro female born 1906)is also showing up as a widow and theres no record of marriage for either one of them. I would really appreciate any insight... Thanks
