I'm searching for information about Ballard Gardner. He was born in Alabama or Ireland, pre-1840, and lived in Alabama before moving to Louisiana. He then lived and later died in the Mansfield, Louisiana area. His wife was Elizabeth Mixon. She died on 5-6-1888. They had a daughter named Bettie Gardner, born 2-8-1855. Bettie's husband's name was Levi Howell. I have information about their descendants for anyone interested.
