Charla, interested to know what were some of Columbus’ siblings? I am a Gardner whose roots go back to Thomas Gardner and Hannah (Spann) born in Charleston, SC and died in Hayneville, AL. My grandfather was Arthur Gardner Sr. aka Buster.
I have a family tree book that my Grampy gave me (he passed away in 2010). There is a Columbus Gardner listed as being born May 1889 in Hayneville, but it doesn’t list any children/spouses for him. Looks as if Mack Gardner and Kittie Sanders were the parents of Columbus.
