Fred,
According to family passed down information, my grandmother Gertrude Maude Alexander and her brother William Alexander were the children of a union between a Coleman woman (that is all I know about her) and a man named Murtishaw (that is all I know about him). They were adopted by Calvin Calhoun Alexander and his wife Mary Smith Alexander.
My grandmother Gertie married Oliver Odell Tisdale my grandfather. They are burried in Spartanburg, S.C. My father is Preston Alexander Tisdale. He is still living.
I have searched for months for a link to my family's past to no avail till I ran across you work on Calvin Calhoun Alexander.
Is there any light you can shed on all of this?
Thanks---Joe Tisdale
