Hi, Ruth. My grandfather, Isaiah Stowe Ballance was born 1879. His people were originally from Ocracoke and I have searched family records looking for any info on Ida Mae and have not found anything. Grandpop had a brother Henry H., born 1873, but I don't have any info on his children. My father was born 1922 in Hatteras Village. Ida Mae could have been a cousin. My dad his 2 sisters are all deceased. This is all the info I have presently.
Is Ballance her maiden or married name?
Please respond. You may e-mail directly if you like. Thanks-Nancy

I was born and raised on Hatteras. I remember Mr. Isiah very well from when I was growing up. I don"t remember of Mr. Isiah having a brother named Henry. If so, I never heard it mentioned. Mr. Isiah,s mother was my G. grandfather Ira M. Stowe's sister. It is entirely possible that the Ballance's you seek could have come from Ocracoke. If I can track down or help clarify any information, please let me know. Does your father happen to be Myron Ballance? s/ Louis Stowe

I saw your message looking for information on Ida Mae. I know of an Ida Mae Ballance who was the daughter of Tom Ballance and Virginia Tolson. She married a man with the last name of Massey and is buried in the Ocracoke Community Cementary.

Tom Ballance had a sister named Ida Ballance who married a Captain Hassell.

I'm looking for any information on Holloway Ballance who married a Nancy. Their children were Aaron Ballance, Sr., William H. Ballance, Elisha Ballance, Nancy Ballance and Banister Ballance.
