"Ft. Decatur, Milstead and Cowles Station are three different places. Ft Decatur is on the Tallapoosa. Milstead is a former post office and train depot. Cowles Station was a flagstop on the former Western Railway of Al. railroad. They are all in the same vicinity, but are three distinctly different locations." (Submitted Jul. 31, 2013)

"if anyone wants to take the time to look,there is a picture of cowles station in arrowpoints magazine in the archives in montgomery.the building was a lot smaller than fort decater.if anything i believe it was milstead." (Submitted Apr. 5, 2012)

"I am not sure if ft Decatur and Cowles station are the same place. The fort is on a very high bluff and it would be difficult to walk down to the rivers edge. I am going to try to make a "you tube" video of the Ft. Decatur sometime in future. I have always called it fort decatur because of the bronze plaque located on a large stone at the site. If you can get any more information about Cowles, I would like to know. Thanks!!" (Submitted Oct. 23, 2011)
