If there is a library nearby with a genealogy department you might look for a book "The Heritage of Winston Co. AL".
A Chilcoat wrote an article about Thomas Chicoat and some of his children.Thomas and his wife, Patience Fowler, had some 9 children.From the article, it appears Thomas's son, John R. married Mary Long and had 2 children, Charles Walter being one of them.Charles married Ella Radford and had 8 children, Luther being one of them.
Does any of this ring a bell?
The article tells about how "colorful" Luther was in spinning a "good story".It also mentions "Aunt Lucy".
Chilcoat is a line I'm researching.Thomas's dad was John, who served in the revolutionary army.John lived to be in his 90's (I believe) and Thomas was near 90 when he died.
