My Ballard line is a real problem. My gg Grandmother was Geraldine (or Jerelene) Ballard, born c.1830 in Humphreys Co., Tennessee. She married David Herndon in 1847 in Benton Co., TN. She died between 1870 and 1880. I've never been able to find any other info on her.
Flora Walker born abt 1885 in Alabama married Craig Thomas Taylor 29 Nov 1881 they were my ggrandparents they lived in Lampasas Texas I know alot abt the Taylors but still researching Walkers I know Flora's mother had a restaurant in Sulphur Springs Texas somewhere between 1920 to 1940 maybe does any of that sound familiar? Stay in touch the more I find out I will be glad to share if it is your line. I don't know for sure where her parents were born.
