Pioneer Woman Dead.

Mrs. Mary E. Ballard Succumbs at Auburn.

Auburn, March 12.--Mrs. Mary E. Ballard, one of the oldest pioneers of the state of Washington, died here this afternoon at the age of 76 years. Mrs. Ballard's husband, the late Dr. Levi W. Ballard, preceded her in death nearly 12 years ago. Aside from a stepson, Capt. W. R. Ballard, of Seattle, she leaves her own sons, Charles H. Ballard, of Nevada; Hazard I. Ballard, of Okanogan county, Wash.; Leon F. Ballard, of Bainbridge island; and Arthur C. Ballard, of Auburn, Wash.

Mrs. Ballard, formerly Ms. Condit, was born at Morristown, N. J. She was married to Levi W. Ballard in 1857, and following her marriage she and her husband embarked for the Pacific coast, coming by way of Cape Horn. They arrived at Portland, Ore., in 1858, aboard the old vessel Northern Light, where Dr. Ballard practiced medicine until 1864, when the couple moved to what is now the townsite of Auburn, taking up 160 acres of land in the White river district. Later a part of their holdings was platted into the townsite of Auburn.
