Teri, My uncle John R. Alderman of Marmet was the only Alderman and he had all daughters. My grandfather, Ira Claude Alderman had a brother Everett L. who lived up the river from Marmet, at Winifrede.He died in 1956 and keft his widow, Minnie Kirk.They had five sons, Luther, Harry, Carl, Frank and Bill.Three daugthers, Blanche, Myrtle and Gladys. As far as I know, Luther married Rebecca Estep, Harry married Madeline Weaver and later Ottie Estep, and Bill married Allie McCormick. Gary might have came from one of those unions, or at least through one of Everett's progeny.All of my other aunts and uncles in Marmet and Hernshaw were Scraggs. Names were Ethyl Stewart, Nettie Smith, Myrtle Stone and Albert Scragg of Hernshaw. I contacted Norma Perdue, P.O. Box 38,Winifrede W.V. for info and she confirmed that Everett's father was Martin Luther, son of Phillip. Gary might be a cousin.
