Re: Family of Yancy B. and Naomi C.
My grandmother was the wife of Paul W. Ballinger, son of Cyrus C. Ballinger. Paul was dead before I was born. I had been told that he died in WWII, but could never find anything. Finally I was able to locate his death record. He died in Missouri on a train en route to deployment. He and my grandmother had no children. I noticed on his death certificate that he had been born in El Paso, Texas, my home town. Cyrus C. Ballinger and wife, Phoenia Weckerle had several children from 1902 to 1912, but both the parents died before 1919. The remaining living children, including Paul were farmed out to various families and virtually impossible to trace.
One day I took my students to the Historic Cemetery in this town to visit the graves and to hear ghost stories. As we neared the grave of John Wesley Harding, I tripped over a grave site, and there I met Paul Ballinger's parents. I am getting their graves connected and will connect Cyrus C. Ballinger to his parents.

Children of Yancy Ballinger and Naomi Ballinger include:
Laura Ballinger Winston b. 1850 *
Nereus Allen Ballinger b. 1852 (Allen Nevus, A.N., Nevus?)**
Julia Ballinger Winston b. 1855 *
Cyrus C. Ballinger b. 1858
Dora Lacordine Ballinger b. 1861 *
Mary Ballinger Yates b. 1864 *
Caroline Ballinger b. 1866

*buried this cemetery **Family of wife Dora Taylor Ballinger is here, but husband Neurus is not found

The pic of the grave is of a Douglas F Peterson with different birthday and day of death carved into the stone. Do you have a pic of Douglas F Peterson with B: 1-12 1895 and D: 5-27-1947? Thank you.

RE: Calvin Heagey
I just figured out the problem. There are two memorials for Calvin Heagey in findagrave. It is the other one that has him buried at Elias Cemetery in Emmitsburg, MD which is incorrect. I must have selected the wrong one when I posted my edit. Sorry.

RE: Calvin Heagey
I am not sure if I ever replied to your message, so I apologize if this is a repeat. Someone else has an entry for Calvin Heagey in findagrave showing he is buried in Elias Lutheran Church Cemetery in Emmitsburg. That is incorrect. Your entry is the correct one. Thank you!

RE: David Holt Dyer
No problem. Maybe you can write the person who created the other Findagrave page and ask them to delete it since you have the proof.
Thank you!

RE: Margaret LaFave
No problem at all. If I had seen the grave marker I wouldn't have raised the issue. Thanks!

I do appreciate the help. I believe we are caught up on this part of my cousin's tree now.

God Bless, Lynda
