During 1885 - 1889 Calvin and Florence appeared to live in Texas because two of their children were born there. In March 1900 their daughter, Neiver Arrant, was born in Louisiana.

Upon returning to Union Parish, Louisiana, Calvin made the following land purchases (see Appendix for copies):
Jan. 12, 1901: Union and Lincoln Parishes, La. To ????: E 1/2 of SE ¼ of Sec. 24 and NE ¼ of NE ¼ Sec. 26, T2??? ? D. West mid NW ¼ of NW ¼ Sec. 30 T. 2 W. N. R. 1. West containing 160 acres more or less

Nov. 13, 1901: Union Parish, SW quarter of SE quarter of SW quarter and SW quarter of SW quarter less [12 or 17] acres in SW corner of said last ????il and forty on which Culbertson Church is situated and less 1 acre on which school house is situated being in section Thirty <30> of Twenty <20> NR one West Containing Thirty-seven acres more of less.

Sept. 7, 1906: Union Parish, NE ¼ of SW ¼, & W ½ of SW ¼ Sec. 27 T 20 N R ! West excluding however, a strip of land as stated in the deed from the V. S. & P.R.R. co., to J. M. Pardue containing 120 acres more or less

A family rumor: Calvin is said to have suffered a mental breakdown as a result of recovery pressures upon his family from the American Civil War. The family basically lost everything to taxes and carpetbaggers. He supposedly committed crimes against others as well as his own property (barn burning and killings-said to be in self-defense/family defense). He and others could not live with his actions and so he was committed to a mental hospital in the state of Texas. He died there and was returned home for burial. [Another version says after the crimes he ran to Texas.] This will take some research to prove one way or the other.
