My gg-gf William W. ADERHOLD m. 1860 Carroll Co, GA to Martha Catherine BORDERS.They had two sons, Ben and John Robert ADERHOLD.William served in the CSA and, as the story goes, was reported killed.His wife Martha m. Calvin B. GLADNEY, who also served in the CSA.Calvin had previously been m. (1859) to Angeline Jane KNIGHT.
William returned after being paroled by the Union and discovered his wife and children living with GLADNEY, so he left money with his brother, Dr. Luna Jackson ADERHOLD, for the education of the two boys and then disappeared.When Uncle Lune went to get the boys, Ben went with him, but John (my mom's paternal grandfather) wanted to stay with his mother and was reared with his GLADNEY step/half siblings.
I have never been able to find a divorce record for Calvin GLADNEY and Angeline KNIGHT; she m2. 1869/1873 Elbert FOWLER.I also have not located a marriage record for Calvin and Martha; the 1900 census states that they had been married 33 years at that time.A letter written in 1920 by Uncle Lune's father-in-law Dr. Joseph Robertson HOOD states that William ADERHOLD went to Indiana and remarried, never returning to Georgia again.I have not been able to find him or any possible descendants by a wife subsequent to Martha.
Does anyone have any information or suggestions on answering any of these unresolved matters?I contributed heavily and assisted in the editing of Bill CASH's "ADERHOLD/T Collection," and would be glad to do look-ups.Copies of the book are still available from the author, who lives in Denver, CO.I can provide his address and phone number if anyone needs it.I am interested in receiving any corrections and additional information, as I will probably be compiling a revised edition of the "Collection" for publication in the future.
