Col. Saunders and his family were early settlers of northern Alabama, and in his later years he compiled extensive information on thousands of residents of the Tennessee River Valley, to which his daughter added even more genealogical material, extending lines back into Virginia and the Carolinas.  

Saunders began his historical section with a survey of early officeholders of northern Alabama, followed by detailed accounts of the military units from the area that fought in the War Between the States. Saunders could not limit himself to the immediate topic at hand, but always provided much family information on the county officials and soldiers he treated, based on his direct knowledge of the families and their setting.

His granddaughter began to compile more straightforward genealogical accounts of many of the same families, to accompany her grandfather's narrative material. After his death she continued the work, which included abstracts from wills, deeds, newspapers and other sources.

As a result of these complementary efforts, hundreds of families may be seen from more than one perspective. Many of the families are traced back to Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, and also traced forward to Kentucky and Tennessee, as well as Alabama.
