My grandmother's name was Beatrice Emma George. She was born in Merrimac, MA in 1895. She died in Haverhill, MA at 94 yrs. old.

She was married to my grandfather Wilbur Fiske Ball of Haverhill. They had 3 children together Raymond, Phyllis and Wilbur, Jr.

My grandfather Ball had been married before to a woman who died during the epidemic. They had 2 children together Russell and Winnie.

Russell and Winnie were raised by his first wife's family. I do not know if they were raised as Ball or something else.

My grandmother Ball's parents died in the epidemic and she was raised by her mother's family. I believe their names were Ned and Teresa Prescott of Haverhill, MA. and Cuba. We do not know what my grandmother's parents names were or where they were born. I do not know if there were siblings as I don't recall ever meeting anyone. This may not mean anything since we did not reside in MA during our childhood.

My father believes that her family may have been from Exeter, NH or somewhere around the NH/MA border.

Anyone willing to share ANY information on my grandmother's line?

Thanks, any response will be appreciated.
