To this union four children were born, a son and a daughter having passed on and two daughters survive, Reba and Estelle, both living in Hayti. Four brothers and four sisters, all living in and around Mayfield, Ky., survive her. Mrs. Ball had lived in and around Hayti for the past several years, moving to that community from the Stanley neighborhood. She was a member of the Christian Church. Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. J.R. Bullington, pastor of the Hayti Methodist Church, assisted by the Rev. C.H. Franks, pastor of the Hayti Baptist Church. Interment was made in the Dry Bayou cemetery beside the remains of her husband, Morgan Ball, who died about a year ago.
