Collective Family memory

Currently researching data regarding
Ballard's siblings and marriage date. If you have
information to share, please contact L.W. Roberts


           The exact date of Ballard's marriage to Angie Whitson is somewhat in question. They "ran away" to be married. The Marriage did not have the approval of either set of parents, and there was "bad blood" over their union for several years. Angie and Ballard enjoyed approximately 35 years of married life before his early death (massive cardio-vascular infarct) at age 55, in 1945. Angie never remarried.

          Ballard and Angie lived in Kingsville, Texas during their entire marriage. Ballard owned a barber shop (on 5th Street) and worked as a barber until his death in 1945. They never owned a home during that time.

          Ballard Boyer had 11 siblings: James Monroe Boyer, Mary Boyer Gurren, Laura Boyer, Miles Burros Boyer, Sarah Boyer Rosten, Tom Boyer, Lennie Boyer Johnson, John Lesly(ie) Boyer, and three who died in infancy (Lettie, Dolly and Effie).
