John Martin Dombhart born July 28, 1889 in Washington D. C..  Mr. Dombhart moved to Walker County in 1929.  Mr. Dombhart's passion for the 'hobby' of "collecting  historical data on the county" lead him to spend three years writing a book and compiling information on it's towns and it's people: History of Walker County Alabama.

 He begins his chapters explaining the history of the county, it's creation, rise, and times, he describes  Walker County and the War between the states as well as the railroads and World War I and the Depression.  In part two, he writes about the towns in the county and in part three includes the early settlers.
