Hi Doug. I just read your message and am hoping you are still active here.
I went to your site which was interesting. I noticed that there wasn't much information on Daniel and Louisa. Have you found out any more information?
I couldn't help but notice a number of my same surname lines: Cunningham, Leavitt, Sinclair/St Clair. Not that we are necessarily kin in anyway, but would be interesting to see if you have the following in your line/information:
J E (Josiah) Cunningham (he was the first husband of my great-aunt, Emma Stanfield--married in 1870 Georgia)
John T St Clair/Sinclair born abt 1850+ in either Arkansas, Texas, or Alabama (my g-grandfather whom we believe married three times and spent most of his time in Texas or Oklahoma.
Any of the Leavitts living at and moving to New Hampshire, Utah, California, Texas, and New Mexico. (My grandmother Nancy Eliza Leavitt married my grandfather Fredrick Perry "Fred" Thomas. She died in New Mexico in 1918). I do have a lot of information on her. Her family came from New Hampshire to California (maybe via Utah) where she was born. They then moved to a southern state (I can't recall right now). She married Fred Thomas in Texas--he was born in Illinois, moved to Arkansas with his parents and then on to Texas. He spent most of his life in Texas and New Mexico.
But mostly I am interested in the children of Daniel C and Louisa (Cunningham) Balis. My great-great grandmother was (I am 90% sure) was named Adaline C/Eliza A C B_______ --which may be Balis (at least near that). She married a Mr. Stanfield (who 'may' have been named Joseph)in about 1851. I do have information from USGenWeb Pike Co, GA marriages (Bride's index (A-F)which can be consistant with the birth of their twin girls (Ella and Emma)in abt 1852 and their son William F--my grandfather--in 1855.
Just before or just after William F's birth, Mr. Stanfield has passed away/left and Eliza marries Zachariah Jordan. By the 1860 Neshoba Springs, Mississippi, Eliza and Zachariah have 2 children together as well as a son of his first marriage and the Stanfield children living with them. Zachariah dies (Civil War?) and by the 1870 census, the family--minus Zachariah and his oldest son--are back in Georgia and the twins--living with Eliza are now married--Emma to Josiah/JE Cunningham.
I guess I'd like to know if you have anything along this line concerning Daniel C. and Louisa Cunningham Balis. I have hit several brick walls concerning Eliza and "Joseph" and can get no further back with either.
Sorry this is so long. Thank you very much for your time and any help you may be able to give.
