Ella Grace JACK, wife of George Washington BALLENGER, b. Washington DC 1852.

Washington DC/Virginia

 Apparently, Ella Grace JACK-BALLENGER died in May 1938 while visiting her daughter's home - a Mrs. Estelle BIEBERLITZ.

From The Evening Star 5-18-1938: Ella Grace Ballinger, nee Jack, 1851-1938. "On Monday, May 16, 1938, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Estelle Bieberlitz, 922 I St. SE, Ella Grace Ballenger, age 87 years, beloved wife of the late George W. Ballenegr, and mother of James E., Elwood D., and John Ballenger and Mrs. Ella Spitzer and Mrs. Estelle Bieberlitz. ALso surviving are 22 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren. Funeral from the above residence on Thursday, May 19, at 9:30 a.m.; thence to St. Peter's Church, Second and C Sts. SE, where mass will be offered at 10 am for the repose of her soul. Internment at Mount Olive Cemetary. Relatives and friends are invited."

1930 fed census taken in DC lists Ella G. BALLENGER as age 80 and not working. Also living there are some of her Grandchildren/in-law,,, named BOWERS this may be Margaret A. LARMAN's maiden name but I cannot be sure. James is listed as living with his mother and age 60.< James(iron worker-contractor) is one of Ella s son's. Albert(painter) is also listed as living with his mth and age 45. James is listed as a Widower and Albert is listed as married< married at age 36. Ella G. BOWER'S Granddaughter,......< listed as "married" and living with her Grandmth---Ella was married at age 17 -according to this census. John F. BOWERS is listed as living there apparently Ella G.'s husband -married at age 21 & a contractor b. in VA both parents also b. VA. Also there is an LEONA f. age 7 which might be Granddaughter -cannot read this for sure-however both Leona's parents were b. DC so this cannot be the daughter of John F. BOWERS. Ella G. BALLENGER is listed as widowed--however she is listed as begin married at age 18. I think that Ella Grace JACK-BALLENGER'S daughter married a Henry LARMAN-who's wife was a Margaret A. BOWER'S-LARMAN and therefore I think that Ella had a Grandson-in-law, who was a BOWERS?

    Info from a footnote member re: BALLENGER

    District of Columbia

    Some info I just receieved today from another www.footnote.com

    member re: BALLENGER'S

    Hi! My name is Michael Wescott. I googled "Ella Grace Ballenger" and ran across your posts. She was my great-great grandmother. One of her daughters, also Ella, married into the Neubeck family, and then remarried a Spitzer after her first husband died. Her daughter Mary Estelle Neubeck was my maternal grandmother, born in 1910. Somewhere I have a photo of Ella Ballenger (nee Jack) if you'd be interested in seeing it. In fact I have some artifacts of the Ballenger family going even further back.

     

    I always try and save this kind of info, and go look at it more later.

    This is one of my GreatGrandmother's Ella Grace JACK-BALLENGER-FOSTER. Dec'd in No., VA abt 1940.

    Ella Grace JACK-BALLENGER, daughter of a James JACK of Virginia, was one of my GGreatGrandmothers (faternal)

    More info from M. WESCOTT-re: BALLENGER'S/JACKS.

    District of Columbia/Virginia

    More good info re: BALLENGER'S/JACKS from

    Michael WESCOTT, a decendant of the BALLENGER'S


    I found a trove of family papers, including the names of James Jack's parents etc. Also obituaries for George Ballinger Jr and Sr., and James Jack Jr. and Sr. and also where they were buried. The papers are from some relatives that did research in the 80s, I think. Included among them was your g-grandmother Susanna's obituary, from the Washington Evening Star 9/8/1935.
    I'll see if I can photocopy this stuff and mail it to you. Here are some highlights:
    James Jack Sr. was born 10/12/1796 in Ireland. He married a woman named Susan, who was born in Virginia in 1788, and died 6/6/1860. She is in Glenwood Cemetery, Washington, DC.
    They had 11 children, including James Jack Jr., born 1824 in Virginia. Died 6/13/1876 and is also in Glenwood Cemetery. He married Susanna Edlin (4/6/1829-7/29/1863) on November 16th, 1847 in Washington DC. She is in Mount Olivet Cemetery.
    They had three children, Edwin H. Jack (1848-1894), Ada E. Jack, and Ella Grace Jack, born in 1850, and died 5/16/1938. Mount Olivet Cemetary.
    I have copies of all their obituaries from DC and Alexandria papers.
    On the other side, George W. Ballinger Sr. was born in 1805 and died 5/17/1859, aged 45 years according to his obituary. In Washington DC on 12/12/1839 he married Mary A. Nicholson (b. 1825 in Virginia).
    They had 9 children, including George W. Ballinger Jr., born 1844 and died 1916. He's buried at Mount Olivet with Ella Jack and numerous children.
    There's too much information to retype all of it. Maybe I'll try to scan it somewhere, or photocopy it and mail it to you.
    The Evening Star, Washington, DC, Saturday, September 16, 1854: "This morning, the sixteenth instant, after a long and painful illness, Mr. James Jack, in the 58th year of his age, leaving family to mourn their irreparable loss. The friends and acquaintences of the family are invited to attend the funeral from his late residence of 4-1/2 street near Pennsylvania avenue, on tomorrow (Suanday) afternoon at 3 o'clock"
    The Alexandria Gazette, 5/19/1859: George W. Ballinger 1805-1859. "In Washington, on the 17th instant, GEORGE W.BALLINGER, in the 45th year of his age. The friends and acquantences of the family are respectfully invited to attend his funeral, this evening from his late residence, on VIrgina avenue between 4-1/2 and 3rd streets, Washington, at 2 o'clock."
    Alexandria Gazette 6/8/1860: "Suddenly, in Washington, on the 6th insant, Mrs. Susan Jack, relict of the late James Jack, aged 72 years. Her funeral will take place from her late residence, No. 41 Four and a Half Street, between Pennsylvania and Missouri avenues..."
    You get the idea. I have similiar transcriptions for all the children and grandchildren and whatnot.

    Michael
