Alternate History

I am working on a story and I am trying get a handle on my background. It seems to be rural moutainous area but “when” is eluding me. I can’t seem to pin down the timeframe. I think I am kind of looking at maybe late 1800s or possibly the 1900-1920. I don’t think it would be any sooner based on the people and their mannerisms, tools, dwellings etc.

I ran into an idea that keeps looking at me: alternate history/timeline. So I have been poking around the web to see what I can find. Interestingly enough I have never read an alternate timeline story (to my knowledge) so I am at a loss on how to know. Normally a writer pulls the story along but this story is dragging me along for the ride. 

Anybody have any thoughts, comments, or ideas to share?
