Birth: 1820
Madison County

Death: Jul. 18, 1890
Madison County
Kentucky, USA

Obituary-Tiberius Bell Ballard died at his home near White's Station, in Madison county, Ky., on Friday, July 18, after a lingering illness, aged 70 years. The remains were deposited in the Richmond Cemetery on Saturday with Masonic honors. He is the last of twelve children of James B. Ballard, deceased, except P.P. Ballard of this place and Mrs. J.K. Harris, of the county.

The deceased was a remarkable man. He never took a drink of intoxicating liquor in his life until a mild stimulant was advised by a physician after receiving a serious kick from a horse two years ago. He never smoked, chewed, uttered a profane word or played any game of chance for money. He always stoutly refused to run for office, though frequently urged to do so.

The deceased sold goods at the forks of the road where Berea now stands and was the sole resident of the immediate vicinity where now is found a town of several hundred people and a famous college. He was familiarly known as "Bery" Ballard, and to this day, many persons think that Berea rived its named from him. At his death he was part owner of the land upon which stands the famous Boone's rock, a description which may be obtained from any history of Kentucky.
