Hi Jean.A cousin of mine (and yours) Royal Cooper used to visit Harry and his wife Nellie ( Warner)back in the 40's and 50's.His mother was Matilda Mallory...
“In the 40’s and 50’s I would take my ggreatgrandmother Matilda Mallory (Matilda Jane Ball) ( Mallory, Matilda J w/o W H (Warren Hershell) 01-Dec-1862 + 20-Oct-1958) to visit her (Nellie Warner.)I never realized the connection.Husband of Nellie was Supt of Schools.Bro in law AW an attorney.Their father Hon Thomas (Vanswearingen) came there later.Had been a judge, moved to Ohio from there.Nell and the VanSwearingens buried N. in same row as DWC (Mallory.)”Royal Cooper email Tuesday Oct 1, 2002
(Lt Wesley L Ball of TN, father of Matilda, died in Civil War Sep 1862.Her husband, Warren Hershel Mallory's father, James C Mallory, had also died in the Civil War.)
Here's all I have on Nellie and Harry's children....can you add more?

These are Nellie Warner's parents.(mary Janette Mallory's brother, Daniel Hubbard mallory, married Minerva Warner and had a son William Wallace Warner Mallory.
If you look up Harry's death cert in b 20 dec 1853 d 15 Sep 1920 of a skull fracture suffered when hit by a passenger train.His mother is clearly listed as Elmira Warner.
