Steve, do you know anything about the family of James Perry Alder and his wife Rebecca L. (Parmalee) Alder?At one time they were living in Sedalia, Pettis, Missouri.James (b. 1857 in Brown Co., IN) is a son of Anderson and Martha Ann (Hubbard) Alder.James and Rebecca had 4 children:
Rolla Clark Alder (b. Mar 1877 Sedalia, Pettis, Missouri) Allen J. Alder (b. Apr 1881 Missouri) Eleanor Alder (b. Aug 1887 Missouri) Mary R. Alder (b. 11 Jan 1897 Missouri; d. Oct 1975 Kansas City (Jackson), MO)
James Perry Alder was an older brother of my great-grandfather, Leonidas Silcott Alder.I have an old photo album that had belonged to their father, Anderson Alder.Within the album is an old photo of a soldier in uniform, holding his rifle, with the name Rolla C. Alder written on back.I'd like to make contact with living descendants so that I verify the identity and give them a copy of the photo.
