Re: Patsy Lilly's records
I really would like to be able to review all of Patsy's fathers' records. Nothing is better than information you get from someone who spent a lifetime in the area.

RE: Cemetery Name Haddleton
Well, after thinking about it, and knowing that my Father and everyone else I knew called it Haddleton, I posted all of my graves, including the Ballards, under Haddleton cemetery. I had one grave, Baby Fay Ballard, that I couldn't find out her lineage. Since then, Ronald Nelson told me that she was Alma & Randall' daughter, so I will fix that. I don't like changing cemetery names, so I'm sticking with Haddleton.

And Ronald also told me there is no cemetery on the other side of the river. He' been to the Miller Hill cemetery over there, along with the VandeLinde Cemetery, but he only remembers a coal mine and an old cabin/house in that area. He also directed me to Patsy Lilly Nelson (his father married her about 12 years ago).

RE: Wills
The guy I knew was named Gene Walker. I think he was killed in a car accident, maybe on Six Mile. And since you grew up in that area, is there a cemetery located across the river from Haddleton? I know there was a swinging bridge somewhere thru that area when I was younger, and a house. But someone said there is a cemetery over there, and that I could "walk the railroad tresle over there.

RE: Wills
There are also Runyon and Walker graves there. Don't know the connection with either, except I remember a Walker family that lived on the hill around the curve from Randall Ballard's house.

RE: Wills
Ask him if he knows the history of the Allen family. There is an Allen Cemetery on Low Gap that is full of Ballards, and supposedly the Allen family is where the property originated. I think the Ballards property abutted the Allens back in the early 1800s. His primary ancestor was St. Clair Ballard, and he is buried in Allen Cemetery. Randall's son, Michael, is now living in the old homeplace where Randall & Alma lived, and he has done a lot of research on the family history. Did your parents own a lot of property at Haddleton? There are still some large tracts up on the hillside, even with all the houses they have built.

RE: Wills
And by the way, my father always called it the Haddleton cemetery, too. I spoke with the last Ballard living there on part of the old property, and he insisted it has always been the Ballard Cemetery. Perhaps the section inside the fence was called the Ballard Cemetery, and the other section where your ancestors are buried is considered Haddleton. But I have no control over the memorial pages, as the only one on Ballard Cemetery Washington Heights which I created is for Sharon Ballard Randall. Do you want me to post the pictures of the headstones on the Haddleton Cemetery pages of your family? I am going to do so for the Vickers, as they are friends and one is a lost classmate.
