I don't reconize those names. I have a Mabel Pittman who m. Clifton Ballance. It is possible that they are from the same tree just a different branch. If I come across a match I will pass it on.

Hi Folks:

I have NO information about the Ballance family, but I DID DISCOVER A PHOTO of a JOHN BALLANCE today.

The approx. 9" X 12" Photo is entitled " Staff and Premises of the Wanganui [New Zealand] Evening Herald, 1868 - John Ballance is third from left"

Reproduced from an original negative by the Alexander Turnbull Library Endowment Trust, Wellington, with the Assistance of KODAK New Zealand.

This photo is presently for sale at a local antique shop. I don't think they want much for it. If you would like info, please contact me direct by Email---erniev@home.com
