I have a letter dated 1854, Clarke Co, AL, from E. Callier. I have a pix attached here. E. is saying he wants to go to Gainestown. A little research reveals Gainestown as a fairly small town in Clarke Co. on the Alabama River. It appears from a geographic standpoint, E. almost could walk.
There is talk here about a plantation named Restwell(?), with a lovely picture. Another researcher has identified a plantation named Callier's Hill or New Canaan that was founded in about 1800 by a Callier.
Who is E., or is this really J.S.? What was the plantation's name? Were there two Callier families in the area?
I'm assuming E. was being picked up at the family plantation and transported down the Tombigbee and then up the Alabama- except I really do not where the family plantation is.
No need to answer, but if you do, thank you!
