Bio and Links
I am a researcher of these families: Roberts, Daniel, McCormick,Harlow, Moore, Lane, McCulloch, Kitchens, Wade, Webb, Denton, Tatum and Neal. Most of these families have roots in Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama and Virginia.

I have added the burial places, photos and information to try to help others researching their family heritage. I will be glad to remove or edit any information in which you may find errors. I transfer only within Findagrave guidelines, but will be happy to add links or other information to memorials.

I believe that each life was important and should be remembered and treated with respect and dignity.

Mistake made in haste
Please replace the genealogical information I provided a few minutes ago about Mr. Ball with this corrected copy. I left out one child. I believe this info will help researchers greatly and am happy to share my work with them. I have much more information that I hope to post soon about this family as well as some photos from the pre-WWI era. Sorry for the mistake and inconvenience, but I hope I have caught this in time.

Broomfield Leander (B.L.) Ball and his wife Sallie Indiana Hayes Ball, were married in Giles County, Tenn., March 2., 1873. Their sons were John Hugh "Jehu" Ball, 1877-1933, Rufus Tolbert Ball, 1873-1952, Bascum Texas "Bass" Ball, 1878-1957, Thomas Larimore, 1886-1955, Claude Ball, 1884-1953, and Willie Mack Ball, 1889-1951. Their daughters were Cora Lee Ball Carvell, 1881-1956, Anna Rebecca Ball Green, 1892-1960, and Joseph Ethel Ball Binkley, 1895-1923. B.L. and Sallie are buried in the Shane Cemetery in Culleoka, Maury County, Tenn. Sallie was born in Granville County, N.C., and moved to Giles County, Tenn., as a small child. Sallie was the daughter of Stephen Hayes and Rebecca Puryear Hayes, both of Granville County, N.C. Stephen's father was Simeon Hayes and his mother was Mary Hester. Rebecca's father was Robert Harmon Puryear and her mother was Rebecca ?. Broomfield was born in Giles County, Tenn., and was the son of John D. Ball, a native of North Carolina, who was the son of John Ball, who brought his family to Giles County in the 1830s. Leander's mother, Rhoda Carpenter Ball, was the daughter of Hensley Carpenter and Rhoda Mayes Carpenter, both of Amherst County, Va., who came to Giles County, Tenn., before 1820. Rhoda Mayes' father was Robert Mayes (mother was Elizabeth ?). Hensley's father was Benjamin Carpenter (mother was Mary ?).

RE: Florida & Isham Roberts
My mother used to tell me about her "city cousins" and her "country cousins", and when I began her genealogy a few years ago, I realized she had an unlimited line of cousins. Glad to know a new paternal cousin!

There are many trees showing Sophronia, with the DOD of 1901 nothing more. I did see one showing Austinville as the place, but did not pursue to see if it could be validated.

I'm in the process of moving from Sacramento, CA (my home since 1957) to Olympia, WA, to be near my daughter. My time working with genealogy is going to be limited>none for a while. If you wish, we can communicate via personal emails, or we can continue with the status quo until I get settled and back to a normal routine.

I'll be in Olympia by the end of March, and will retain my same

The Mississippi marriage records for White and Colored were kept in separate books for a long time, varies from county to county, but usually up until 1900 or so.
I imagine the marriage record on was marked Colored by the person who transcribed it, but that does not mean it is correct. You might want to request a copy from the county, or look on the Family Search site to see if they have scanned the book.
Some counties have the old books right where you can see them, others have put their old books away and have typed transcriptions out on the tables.
