There were 2176 individuals residing in Washington County Alabama at the time of the 1860 census. Here’s some interesting facts concerning them:

2119 whites , 53 free mulattoes, and 4 free blacks. There were also 2491 slaves that were recorded separately in the slave census.

Occupations: barkeeper, blacksmith, brick mason, carpenter, clergyman Methodist, clerk, dentist, ditcher, engineer, farm apprentice, farm laborer, farmer, gambler, grocer, innkeeper, laborer, lawyer, mail carrier, mechanic, merchant, miller, overseer, physician, public officer, rail road, rail road hand, saddler, school teacher, seamstress, spar getter, steamboat hand, steam-boating, stock keeper, stock raiser, student of medicine, teacher, timber getter, turpentine manufacturer, and well digger.

Franklin Parnel was a “spar getter.” A spar is a thick, strong pole such as is used for a mast or yard on a ship. As best I can figure out, Franklin was known to find the trees that could be used to create these spars, in contrast to the general “timber getter” Sylvanus Cobb.
