Widowed and recorded as a senior citizen and living in the home of her son Bert Ball, Martha died at Warren Creek, Humboldt County, California. Presuming the information contained to be correct (contacting the contributor is impossible, so the information's sources cannot be confirmed), Martha's Pedigree Resource File indicates the birth, death and marriage information which I have added to this memorial, including that Martha Ellen Justus (Justice?) married Francis (aka Frank) Ball on March 14, 1865 in Jackson County, Oregon. Cemetery administrator confirms that Martha's date of death and her burial date contained in this memorial were only a few days apart, thus, her Pedigree Resource File's death date appears to be accurate. More research is currently being conducted to determine more about Martha's life.

[While researching, it was noted that by the time of the 1900 Census, Martha had had eleven children, with six of them in the 1880 household of she and Frank Ball in Table Rock, Oregon.]

[This is a very interesting census record! It may establish an originating connection between the Ball and Justice families. Note that the Frances Ball individual below is not the same individual as the Frank Ball which Martha married. According to the naming structure of this time period, Edward would have been the given name of Martha's father, because the second son born to Martha and Frances Ball was named Edward Ball. The Edward Justis below was born in June of 1827, which places him approximately in the right age range to have been the potential father of Martha Justus Ball. However, the relationships of those below and Martha Ball are unknown. New information: Martha may have been married before her marriage to Frank Ball. Even so, however, following the naming structure, the second son born to Martha, Edward Ball (Edward would have been present in the household of Martha and Frank Ball because he was born prior to Martha's marriage to Frank), would have been named after her own father.]
