Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I may get information on Samuel Monroe Ballard born 15 Sep 1882. The only census I can find him on is the 1910 census after he left NC and moved to SC. He was the son of James Milas Ballard, sometimes listed on census as JM Ballard, and Sarah Kline. He left home by 18 because the 1910 census has James Milas and his second wife and Samuel's step-brothers and sisters listed. It is almost as if he didn't exist before 1910. He also had a ounger brother George Augustus"Gus" that I cannot find until the 1910 census. Family tradition says that Sam and Gus did not get along with stepmother and left home. There is also a story of them working for a logger after leaving home. Could there be census records at this logging camp. I believe it may have been in SC but not sure.
Thanks, Amelia Lewis
