Thereis a James Ballard living with his sister Julia Ann and her husbandWilliam J. Blan in 1870. It is possible that the name is wrong,because the birth state of both Julia and James is listed as AL whichwe know is incorrect for Julia. In his mother's 1871 will, A. C.Worthy is listed as his guardian. In the 1880 Pike Co AL census,there is a Alford A. Worthy, lawyer 52.
About 1875, John had married Laurentine 'Tinnie' E Nixon. He was 20,she 19. They had several children.

John died on 27 Oct 1918 and is buried in Oakwood cemetery in Troy.His obituary in a local newspaper: ' Troy AL. Oct 30 - John J.Ballard, prominent in affairs in this section for a long number ofyears, died Sunday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ben Head,at Brantley. Mr. Ballard had been ill for several weeks, but hadrecovered sufficiently to be up.

According to the notes of Elizabeth Ballard, John was in the 1830 land lottery.

1830 Greene Co GA, p283: 1/2 males 15-20 living with Elijah Ballard

On 17 Oct 1833 at age 20, he married Nancy McKnight (age 24) inTaliaferro Co GA. Their first child, William E. Ballard was born 9months later on 10 Jul 1834. Eleven more children were to follow withthe last being born in 1853. Twelve children in 20 years.

In 1840 John and Nancy were living in Fayette Co GA with their firstfour children, males 1 5-10, 2 < 5, females 1 < 5. This matches thefamily bible records of son Thomas Weldon Ballard. William E. 19 Jul1834, Robert Samuel 3 Mar 1836, James Purifoy 10 Apr 1840, and MaryElizabeth 3 Apr 1838.

In 1848, John I. (sp?) Ballard served as a member of a Horse Company(Cavalry) from Fayette Co GA known as the Georgia Generals. (111)

The only John J Ballard found so far in the 1850 census is in FayetteCo GA. The actual microfilm records show John J 38, Nancy 41, Martin12, Jackson 8, John 5, Sarah Ann 3, and Zachary T as 3/4. They areliving in the same dwelling as G H Cox 37, wife Mary A 20 and 2children; and Sarah A E Hightower and her child; and with Elisha Hill70 and wife Elizabeth 70. This is not our John J Ballard. However the ages for John J Ballard and Nancy match our John Jasper and NancyMcKnight.

John's father Elijah died on 25 Dec 1852 and was buried in the Ballard family cemetery in Fayette Co GA. John's mother Sarah Tabitha Weldon died on 9 Jan 1864. John J. has not been located in the 1850 census.In the 1850 slave owner census for Fayette Co GA, John Ballard is notlisted.

John J. lived in Fayetteville GA until 1854 when the family moved toMilo (south of Troy) in Pike Co AL. (89) He purchased the followingland at the St Stephens land office on 28 Nov 1854: NW 1/4 of NW 1/440.093 ac, SW 1/4 of NW 1/4 40.093 ac in Township 9N Range 21E (149)

Daughter Mary Elizabeth Ballard married Henry L. Gibson in Pike Co ALon 28 May 1856. Second son, Robert S. Ballard died at the residence ofMrs. Boswell in Pike Co AL on 31 Aug 1857. Daughter Sarah J. C.Ballard married Wm R.Rice in Georgetown, GA on 16 Aug 1858. Both werelisted as being from Pike Co AL. Son William E. Ballard married SusanBanks in Pike Co on 3 Oct 1858. (139)

'Under and by virtue of a Mortgage Deed to us executed by Jno. J.Ballard on the 23rd day of Jan 1857, and recorded in Mortgage Book Aon page 326, we will proceed to sell at public outcry, for cash, onthe 1st Monday in Jan 1859, before the Courthouse door in the town ofTroy, Pike Co, AL, within the legal hours of sale, to the highestbidder, the following lands, to wit:
The NE 1/4 of the N 1/2 of the SE 1.4 of S33 T9 R21

The W 1/2 of the NW 1/4 of the SE 1/4 of S34 T9 R21 (139)

John Jasper has not been located in the 1860 census either in GA orAL. He was not listed in the slave owner census of Pike Co AL in1860.

Two of his sons joined the Conderate Army in 1861. James Purifoyjoined Company I of the 15th AL Infantry Regiment at Troy. ThomasWeldon joined Company I of the 22nd AL Infantry Regiment atMontgomery. James continued in service until the end of the war.Thomas was wounded in the leg which was later amputated.

In 1863 age 50, John entered the Civil War and served for eighteenmonths as a 1st Cherokee Brown Rifleman in Co F, 2nd Reg GA Vol Inf inthe Army of Northern Virginia.

If John J. died in Jul 1864 and served for 18 months, he would havejoined in about Jan 1863. Family tradition has it that John J. wentto Fayette Co GA to visit a sick relative. That probably was his son,Thomas Weldon, who had lost a leg and was recuperating at the home ofhis grand-mother in Fayetteville, Fayette Co GA. Family traditionsays that he joined the Civil War there, possibly serving with hisbrother, Daniel G. S. Ballard. However much of the unit in which heserved was from AL. See discussion below.

John Jasper first appears in Confederate records on a muster roll forJul-Aug 1863 for Company G of the 2nd GA Volunteer Infantry Regiment.Other records:

The 2nd GA Battalion of Sharpshooters had many AL members. Theoriginal company of sharpshooters had 81 out of 100 men who came fromthe four AL regiments of Brig. Gen John K. Jackson (17th, 18th, 21st,and 24th). This company became Co D. Company E was formed by MajorJesse J. Cox of Autauga Co AL from members of his home state. Theyserved from Nov 1862 until Jun 1863, when they transferred out to thenewly organizing 58th Reg AL Voluntary Infantry.(102 WS 95)

He died of yellow fever on 15 Jul 1864 while at Winder Hospital inRichmond, Henrico Co VA and is buried at Shocco Confederate Cemetery.

There was a J. J. Ballard who served in Co G of the 15th AL Regimentwho was killed in battle. (138)

Wife Nancy McKnight is living in Pike Co AL during the 1870 census.

COMMENT:
There was a John J. Ballard who was on the muster roll of Company H,36th GA Volunteer Infantry Regiment. This John Ballard deserted on 17Nov 1862. It is not known if this is our John J. Ballard. ThisCompany was from Whitfield Co, GA. Whitfield Co is in NW GA nearDalton. This needs further research. I saw a reference to a landlottery for a Elijah Ballard for NW GA. I believe about 1837. Idismissed this as another Elijah due to location. Maybe he got theland and gave/sold it to John J.

RESEARCH NOTES:

There were some other Ballard families living in early 1800 Greene CoGA in addition to our line. It is not known if they are related. AWilliam Ballard from Franklin Co married a Nancy Byrd of Greene Co inearly 1800's. Later there was also a Joshua Ballard by 1820.
As of 22 Dec 1996, I have researched all of the Ballards in Fayette CoGA and surrounding counties in 1850. I have researched most but notBallards in the entire states of Alabama and Georgia for 1850 and 1860and I have not been able to locate John Jasper Ballard Sr.
