Am looking for a full listing of the children of Joseph Tarpley Ballenger and Mary Irvin Steele (May 16,1817-Sept 16, 1905.) Mary Irvin Steele was the dau of Isaac STeele, Jr. & Cynthia Cox and was a sister to my direct ancestor, Moses F. Steele.
I do know of one daughter, Martha Catherine Ballenger born Aug 19, 1851 - died Feb 13, 1890. She married James Newman Countiss - he was a brother of Moses F. Steele's wife, Martha E. Countiss.
Would like to fill in this family's information. Thanks.
