{{Fire}} '''1864''' -- Courthouse burned and many records were damaged. Will Book K (begins mid-1850s) is the earliest will book that survives.<br>

{{Fire}} Jackson County had destructive courthouse fires in 1864, and 1920. See ''Research in Alabama: A Genealogical Guide&nbsp;'' pages 27-28 for suggested alternative sources to overcome this loss.<ref>Marilyn Davis Barefield, ''Researching in Alabama: a Genealogical Guide'' (Birmingham, Alabama : Birmingham Public Library, 1998), 27-28. {{WorldCat|42306439|item|disp=At various libraries (WorldCat)}}. {{FHL|817729|item|disp=FHL Book 976.1 D27b 1998}}.</ref><br><br>
