Du instead of De

The question, "We come from Texas=Nous venons du Texas. How do I know which counties or regions or states are masculine. For example: We come from 'Alabama'. Is this masculine or feminine?

Merci!

Lists like the one linked below are readily available: you can learn basic patterns but there are always exceptions so learn as you go is also required. It can be difficult to find ‘official’ grammar gender for some regions/states in some countries etc and just searching the net or other references for the common gender in use is helpful.
