Your comment about getting info from cems
You'd think the cems would want any corrections in their databases.
I think one reason not to give out info is for identity theft.
It occurred to me today, with the transgender population coming out, name changes for gender will really confuse people. Would it be kosher to note that??? (Rhetorical)

RE: Henrietta Ballenger
I found Joshua and Henrietta's obits.

From the Eureka Herald, June, 05,1913.
Henrietta (Fisher) Ballenger
Mrs. Henrietta Ballenger, aged 79 years, died at her home in Eureka on Sat., May 31, after a lingering illness of several months' duration.
Mrs. Ballenger was born in Winchester, Ind., April 4, 1834. She was married to Joshua Ballenger in 1851. They moved to Illinois in 1856. Four years later to Lancaster, Mo., and in 1875 came to Greenwood co., locating on a farm near Eureka. Here they lived until Mr. Ballenger's death in 1900, after which Mrs. Ballenger moved to Eureka, where she has since made her home. She was the mother of eight children, three of whom survive her. They are E.E. Ballenger of near Eureka, Mrs. Alice Jewett on Monett, Mo.,and Mrs. Eva Melvin of Lancaster, Mo.
Funeral services were conducted at the residence Sunday afternoon at 5 o'clock by Rev. S.L. Chase. At Greenwood Cemetery the services were in charge of W.R.C., of which Mrs. Ballenger was a member.

The Eureka Herald March 16, 1900

Joshua Ballenger Dead.
Joshua Ballenger, an old resident of this county, died last Friday at his farm, five miles northeast of town. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon, the Rev. George Johns officiating.
Mr. Ballenger was 75 years of age. He was born at Williamsburg, Wayne Co., Indiana, on Jan.25, 1825. On May 8, 1851, he was married to Miss Henrietta Fisher. They moved to Iowa in 1856. Ten years later they came to Missouri, and in 1878 they moved to Kansas.
There were six children in the family. Two died in Missouri. two daughters are married and live in Missouri. Two sons live in Greenwood County.

(I copied this from the Eureka Herald.)

RE: Henrietta Ballenger

There was a mistake made when Henrietta's memorial page was created. She was born in 1834, not 1864. I didn't mention that in my message. I thought I put the corrected dates down. This is according to the Greenwood Cemetery records. Joshua was born in 1825, which makes him 9 years older. I'm going to the museum later and I will look for both obits. They are usually on file there. If I find them I'll let you know.

Henrietta Ballenger
There is no headstone for Henrietta. Joshua's is there. Henrietta was born 04-04-1834 and died 05-31-1913.
I hope this is of some help.
