I am desperately seeking information on the mother and father of Ballard Monroe Ewers.He died in Lynchburg, but does not mean that his mother and father were from this area. He was my great-grandfather and had 2 children, Ballard Monroe and Gertrude Ewers.My entire family tree is complete back to 1730 except for this side of the family.
He was born May 18, 1881 - d. March 13, 1922 and is buried in Spring Hill Cemetary in Lynchburg, Va. He married Laura May Schrader, born June 9, 1889 – d. May 1, 1956.She was a private practive LPN and is also buried at Spring Hill.
As previously stated, this particular Ballard Monroe Ewers was my great-grandfather.His son, B.M.,Jr.[1906-1969 & my grandfather] dropped the(Jr.)to Sr. after the birth of his son (my father).
My father was B.M. Jr.(1928-1996). My brother is B.M.III and my nephew is B. M.IV and are currently living.
All that I can find is information on Ballard M. Ewers (my grandfather) in the Mason geneology.
I would be greatly appreciative if anyone who may have any information on this topic contact me.
