Looking for parents/siblings of John W. Balentine, born in North Carolina in 1841. Don't know when or where he died, but am assuming North Carolina sometime after 1880.
His wife Mary R. was born in 1842 in North Carolina. They had 5 children born between 1866 and 1880.
Their 2nd was William Lee Balentine (my great-grandfather) born in December, 1868 in Ferrell, Nash County, North Carolina. He died before 1920. His wife was Tullie (Tully?) McAnear, born 13 Feb 1874 in Texas. Tullie died 14 April 1954.
Their other children were:
Bettie P., born about 1866
Julius A., born Dec. 1871
Mary L., born about 1874
Lilian W., born nov. 1880
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
