There is no Wikipedia information on Coalfire, Pickens County,  Alabama….It is not included…So, you are gonna have to just trust me or the twenty-five or thirty or fifty other people who can talk about it…Now, there could be a few more than that, I just don’t know how many of us remain today…At one time there was a bunch of us. The population in the early 1900 was in the neighborhood of 800 or so…anyway, that’s what I was told..Three steam sawmills operated there with a spur rail line running over to them. When the good timber was harvested, the mills left and the little community just slowly died out. A bunch of my kin hung on…Mom and Dad, Granddad, Big Momma, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins (first, second, distant even some double first) and probably some kin I don’t even know about. Anyway, there are a lot of good folks still living there and even more that are FROM there. I have put together some of my stories that I hope you will read. And if you have a story you want me to consider using contact me at phhester6@aol.com and we will see if it can be arranged. You can also comment on any of the stories published here. Please refer to the story number so I can determine the one we are discussing. I have some more to add later…These stories also appeared on my Facebook page.
