My great-great grandfather was William Ballance who was born in Virginia. Married an Alena Winifred from Tidewater, Va. They moved to Ky. (don't know when or where) where my gr. grandfather, James W. Ballance was born. I think it was after he married that he moved to Missouri (Miller County).My grandfather Charles Albert moved to Texas in early 1900s and this where our branch came from. Your original note is from several years ago, but maybe someone will see this. Also, I would like info on the Ballances in Virginia.
