Working back from Ballenger Wade who died in Cumberland County KY on December 24, 1824; I have his parents as Pearce and Mary (Ballenger) Wade. I have Pearce Wade's parents as James Wade Jr. and Elizabeth Ballenger. I have Mary Ballenger Wade's parents as Joseph and Charity (Wade) Ballenger.
I can't help but believe that Elizabeth Ballenger and Joseph Ballenger are somehow related; perhaps as cousins. Can anyone shed any light on this?
