BALL Family

First Generation

1. Walter Alexander1 Ball was born in Illinois October 1865, according to the MCGS copy of the 1900 census - which listed Walter as Miller A. Ball. I have been contacted by a descendant, Timothy Wooley, who corrected the name and says Walter was born in 1865 in Canada.

Walter married twice. He married Phoeba A. F. Meador on December 30, 1887 in Wayne Co., IL.(from the Illinois Online Marriage Database: BALL, WALTER A & MEADOR, PHOEBA A F 1887-12-30 book C p.11 WAYNE). Phoeba died before 1895 in IL.. He married Flora Alma Hayes on January 17, 1895 in Marion Co., IL.(from the Illinois Online: BALL, WALTER A & HAYES, FLORA A 1895-01-17 p.296 lic.10 MARION) Flora was born in Illinois August 1876. Her father was Park C. Hays and her mother was Elijah Jane (Rogers) Hays. (Info. on Flora & her parents comes from Timothy Wooley. I have no dates or further information on either of her parents.).

Walter, listed as Miller A. Ball, was recorded as the head of a family on the 1900 Census in Marion Co., IL..(337)The 1900 Marion County census shows Miller A. as being married 14 years, with 3 of 3 children living. However, the wife's info. says she was born in Indiana. None of the children's info. shows a mother born in Indiana. So I believe Flora's bp & her father's were transposed: should have read IL., IN., GA. It appears Miller A. was first generation born in United States of Canadian immigrants, but Timothy says he was born in Canada also.
