Hi Bobby,

Thanks for sharing your BALLARDS. They are a part of what I believe to be
my BALLARD family. I say, "believe to be" because of the fact that I have
two different sources of information to go on.

According to the census records, my gr grandfather's mother was Sarah L.
BALLARD, and according to a grandson of hers, still living, and some
cousins of my dad, she was called "Elizabeth".

On the 1850 Census for Arkansas:

BALLARD, Geroge H. 44 TN, Elizabeth 32 IL., Ursula 12, Davi P. 8,
Elizabeth 6, Morrison 4, Jseph D. 1, WRIGHT, William 18, Thomas B. 13
Dwelling 367, Black river Twp., Lawrence Co., Ark.

I have assumed that this was my "Elizabeth" BALLARD, aged 6, daughter of
George H. BALLARD, because they were in the right location to have been the
same family. As far as I know, my BALLARDS and FERGUSONS have lived around
Ash Flat, Sharp County, since they arrived in AR.

Why she was listed as "Sarah L" on everything else, I don't know. Or
perhaps I should be asking, why was she known as "Elizabeth"?!

On the same Census was this family:

BALLARD, Samuel age 40 TN, Eliza 26 VA, Mary A. 1, George W. 12,
Margaret 8, Samuel 6 Matthew 5, Dwelling 368, Black River Twp., Lawrence
Co., Ark.

I believe that Samuel and George H. were brothers.

I corresponded briefly with the widow of one of Samuel's descendants, and
in some copies of genealogy information on the family, there was an old
note made regarding George H.:

"I wonder who the George H. BALLARD is who signed one of the affidavits or
proof of service. According to the 1850 Lawrence Co. Census, Matthew had
a brother, George W. In 1910, Matthew would have been 65 years old,so his
brother would have known him for 65 years. According to the affidavit
George H. had known him 55 years. I wonder if he might have been a cousin
to Mathew?"

I was able to share with this lady the information that I have had shared
with me, regarding George H. BALLARD'S family, and I hope it helped her to
know "who" the George H. was.

Here's what I have on George H. BALLARD:
