Re: [alabamahistory] Fort Shippe, Ala.
- Nothing in Foscue's _Place Names_ either, but I got a few hits on the USGS
<http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnis/web_query.gnis_web_query_form> when I
used the wildcard "Ship%" in the Feature Name field, selected Alabama, and
left other fields blank. Results are for features other than a fort, but
they might lead you somewhere.
