From the Files of Marguerite Cook Clark: Kade G. Gardner

Kade Gardner, also seen as Kader Gray Gardner, can be found as a seven year old boy on the 1880 census of Red River Parish. According to a later draft registration his birthday was August 3, 1873. 

His parents were Richard S. Gardner (1821-1913) and Winnie M. Garder (1840-1933). Known siblings were Louisa, Charles, Walter, and Roxy. 

Kade, a farmer and carpenter, married Charlotte Dicy Allums on December 23, 1900 in Red River Parish. They had children Lottie Gray Gardner, Roy Allums Gardner, and Dudley Lucille Gardner. 

By 1910, Kade was working as a barber and living with his family in Ringgold. 

Still in Ringgold, Kade ran a boarding house in 1920. His family lived in the home along with several boarders. His 79 year old mother, a widow, was also living with him. On this census, her name is written as Mary, not Winnie. 

In the 1930 and 1940 census records, Kade's occupation was reported to be a carpenter in a cabinet shop. 

I browsed the Northwest Louisiana newspapers at Newspapers.com and saw that he was a Justice of the Peace in Bienville Parish as early as 1921 and found one mention of him serving in 1940. Newspapers for that area of Louisiana are sparse so we might assume that he was a Justice of the Peace for many years. 

Kade died on June 21, 1953. He is buried in Providence Cemetery in Bienville Parish along with his wife, mother, and several family members. His father is buried in Social Springs Cemetery, Red River Parish, along with some of Kade's siblings.
