What is the connection between Calvin Calhoun/Mary Smith Alexander and the Murtishaws?
My grandmother and her brother William were born around Pacolet, S.C.
Gertrude Maude Alexander (my grandmother) was born on Aug. 17, 1891. Uncle Will (as her brother William was called) married Beatrice Tisdale, my grandfather's brother.
It is a fact that Calvin Calhoun Alexander and his wife Mary Smith adopted and raised my grandmother and her brother. I don't know the circumstances other than what old family members have told me over thr years.
I will keep digging. Thanks for any help you can be. It looks as though you and Thomas and Ruth Ann Harris have done a lot of work.

Joe T.
