Thanks for all your BALLARD information! I am entering your information
into FTM, and I found that I had already entered Francis M. BALLARD from
the 1900 Census for Izard County, Bryan Township.
And, Bill ?? <> is also a descendant of James
Mayfield BALLARD, according to an old post:
>In your family, do you have a James Mayfield BALLARD (1849-1921) ? He
>was married to my GG aunt, Nancy Lorinda Lee YOUNG in 1900 in Fulton Co.
Bill, if you are monitoring this message, do you mind if I ask what your
last name is?
