Martha E. Conway was the youngest child of Charles T. P. Conway Sr. and Eleanor Holt. She had a daughter named Savel Conway who later married Jack Shaver.

Martha E. Conway married William Ballard Mar 24, 1901 and had a son Chesley Ballard, born March 8, 1903. It is believed that she died in childbirth or soon thereafter. No stone marks her grave.

Chesley Ballard, known as "Chess" married Charity Samples July 14, 1923 in Cocke County TN. By 1930 they had two sons, listed as Buford age 6, and B.(Benny) Harold age 4 and were living in Hamblen County, TN. In 1931 they had a daughter who was named Christine. When the Tennessee Valley Authority took their farm for the creation of Cherokee Lake, Chess and Charity Ballard moved to Niota, McMinn County, TN, bought another farm, and died there.
