After checking in Fleming's "Civil War and Reconstruction in Alabama," I could not find anything listing the elected delegates to the Alabama secession convention by name. I did, however, find a list by county of the total votes- secessionist and cooperationist in another book. It also listed the difference in the total of majority and minority vote and whether the county went secessionist or cooperationist (no names and no individual votes listed- just county totals. See table: Election of December 24, 1860 for Delegates to the state convention, January 7, 1861 in "Party Politics in Alabama from 1850 Through 1860," Lewy Dorman, p. 194.
