Several of my family lines migrated from Georgia and Alabama to East and Central Texas. How did they get there?
I spent much of this evening browsing the links on Cindi's List in her Migrations section. There doesn't seem to have been any particular "trail" going across the southern states... not like the more famous ones that go across the central part of the US to California.
I'm aware of one ancestor (Sheffield) that brought a wagon train across from Georgia to East Texas but have no information about their route or experiences. Seems like it would have been a most difficult trip considering the amount of forest land in the south.
Can anyone here offer guidance on where to look for more education on this topic?
