I am looking for my grandfathers birth or adoptive parents. The earliest record I have found for him are the WW1 Draft Cards list Martha Jane Dison as his nearest relative, his birth place as Courtland Alabama, his fathers birthplace is as Rodgersville Alabama. Both Ed and Martha's residence is listed as Courtland Al on the cards. Ed can be located later in Hillsboro Al in 1920 and Decatur in 1930, He and his wife Myrtle Sapp moved to Arkansas sometime after 1930.
Family oral history is that Ed's father was a Harris, a riverboad worker who left Ed's mother when she became pregnant.
