Excerpt from Certain Aboriginal Remains of the Alabama River

But even allowing for many places of sepulture not located by us, it is not likely the borders of the Mobile and Alabama rivers were as thickly settled as were those of Florida's greatest river. The shad which visit the St. Johns, the bass so abundant in its clear waters, are wanting in the Mobile and Alabama rivers. In the great Florida stream, shell-fish were so abundant that shell - heaps covering acres remain along the banks, some a score of feet in thickness. Along the Mobile are shell-heaps of insignificant size, while on the Alabama scattered shells only mark former places of abode But even apart from these considerations, it must be borne in mind that the Mobile and lower Alabama run largely through swampy ground, malarial in summer, a fact which aborigines choosing a place of abode would doubt less take into consideration. Yet we are told1 that De Soto found the Mobilian Indians living along the banks of the Alabama, between the present sites of Mont gomery and Mobile, and later, remnants of the Mobilians dwelt near the coast; bands of Alabamas were settled from the union of the Coosa and Tallapoosa to below where Montgomery now stands; Creeks and Choctaws occupied other portions of the river. Still these Indians had villages on elevated points, doubtless avoiding the swamps, and did not line the banks as did the Indians of the St. Johns.

No systematic investigation of the Mobile and Alabama rivers has been made previous to our own. In the Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology2 we find brief notices of investigation conducted at two points on the Alabama river, one of which is not definitely located; but beyond this we believe excavations have been limited to ignorant search for treasure or to the spasmodic digging of the seeker after relics.
