I am looking for information on my great grandmother
Ethel Mae Carter born 1889 in Gallia,Gallipolis Ohio but
was sent to Beckley West age 11 or 12 after her
mother died and her father remarried to live with an aunt.
She married Clayton Hansborough Ballard 1905 and they
lived in Hinton,West Va.40 years but she died in Clifton
Forge,Va.12-20-1946 and he died there 1961.They had 8
children.I have no idea who her parents were but would
love any information if anyone has a clue.I know her
father was married twice and she had 3 sisters I can
list so far,Mary Carter Bush(Clark C.)of Weston,West Va.,
Mildred Carter Carroll(G.M."Jack")of Holden or
Huntington,West Virginia,Vella/Della or Velma Carter
Farley of New York.I don't know if there are other
sisters and brothers.They had children living in
Covington,Virginia when they both died,Mary Ballard
Andrews(Renick Walter)and their 3 children.The other
children lived in West Va. Thank you for any help.
