Searching for information on John Alderson who married Sarah Self in Northumberland Co., VA in 1859. His name is shown as "Olderson" on the marriage record but all other records show him as Alderson. John had a brother James, who married Sarah's sister Elizabeth (double wedding).
The parents of John and James were John and Patty (McGuire) Alderson. John, Jr. died before 1900 when his wife and two children were on the Census for Washington, DC with the last name "Allison."
Records indicate that both John and James served in the Civil War. They enlisted in Heathsville, Northumberland Co., VA.
Any information on the parents of John and James would be extremely helpful. Also seeking date and place of burial for John. Thank you.
