Betty, are you still offering that migration map to Texas? My relatives went from Morgan County, AL in 1831 to New Orleans (most probably by river) and then from there to the Stephen F. Austin Colony near Columbus, Colorado County, Texas.

The family of Dr. John T. Millar (1787-1831) moved in its entirety, including servants in the Spring of 1831. Some of their servants caught Yellow Fever in New Orleans and it spread to the family, killing John and three of his five children by the Fall/Winter of 1831. John's wife, the former Elizabeth Payne (1797-1837) stayed in Colorado County, TX where their daughter, Nancy Millar married Abraham Alley, one of the original 300 settlers of the Stephen F. Austin Colony. Descendants are still in Texas and some even remained in the Columbus, TX area.

I am interested in putting a book together about this family and others allied to them. I would like to find a map to display their probable migration route to Texas.
