I have a Thomas M. PARDUE, b. 17 may 1839 in Pike Co. Alabama d. 23 Oct, 1907 in Lincoln Parish, Louisiana. He married in Jan, 1870 to Martha Luvaney SANDERS, b. 23 Sept. 1852 Walton Co., Georgia d. 04 Dec. 1919 in Louisiana. They had no children but had two adopted kids.
A Federal Census from 1880 shows Calvin Anderson in the household of Thomas and Martha Pardue.
Calvin David Anderson was my great grandfather, born in 1872. I cannot find any other record of him, his parents, his siblings, or anything prior to 1880. I am not even sure of his parents' names, but a family member told me they think his father's name was James Anderson.
What happened to Calvin David Anderson's parents? Did he have any siblings? Was he officially adopted by the Pardue family or were they just neighbors or relatives?
Please, any clues at all would be greatly appreciated!
