Dear Richard: I do not know if the schools in Chambers County, Al.were military, however, there is a book written by Bobby Lindsey called, The Reason For the Tears.There was a limited printing and copies are scarce.We happened up on one in Clayton Geneology Library on Caroline St. in Houston, TX. We also know of another copy in the Cobb Memorial Library in Valley, Al.They also have a nice history collection ofinformation on Chambers County.Mr. Lindsey included some history of education in Alabama, some school records such as teachers names, students and patron for each child. The basis of the students/patrons used the 183? land lottery plats to locate schools and homes.I hope you are not completely confused.
