Ballard's wife has been confirmed as Elizabeth Burgess d/o Milton.
Original query -
Thought I had it all done...then someone throw a wrench in the works.
The family lived near Clothier, Boone County, West Virginia, between Madison and Logan (Logan Co). I had Ballard's wife as Elizabeth Canterbury. Born: 1854 Died: after 1930. Parents: William W and Nancy Jarell.
Now it's suggested that his wife was Elizabeth Burgess. Parents: Milton Addison Burgess and Nancy Jane Allen. When I asked her gr-gr-granddaughter about it she said that our 'Gr grandma said "I'm a Burgess Burgess...".' But I can't find any proof...NO birth certificate, NO marriage license, NO death certificate.
