5 thoughts on “Baptismal Records, Holy Cross Church, Ballard”

  1. I am looking for a birth record for Holy Cross Church in Marion county KY,1824,mother would be Mary,possibly an illegitimate birth,Reason Cravens name would appear possible

  2. There are several errors in Parents Thomas Ballard & Ellen Holtshouser and children. “Sidney” is my grandfather & his name is Albert Sidney. There was no Felix, the 2nd oldest is Francis Murph, born Jan 20, 1860, 2 more children were born – Ida Louise and Lena Frances. and, most importantly, the parents are John Thorton Ballard and Mary Helen Holtshouser.

    1. While working with the baptismal records, then adding marriage records and census records to the information, I have found that the names given at baptism are not exactly what are used throughout the years. My own Joseph Benedict Napoleon Carrico is a good example. In the baptismal records he is listed as Benedict Joseph Napoleon, but in census records as Joseph Benedict – and my mom knew of him as Joe B. (he was her grandfather, but died before she was born). The ‘Napoleon’ was generally left off! Birth dates may vary from what is in the baptismal records as compared to census records, gravestones or even death certificates. But remember, generally the child was a few weeks or months old when baptized – the parents would remember the birth dates much easier at that time than trying to remember later in life. Unless there was a family Bible in which the dates were written down, they were not remembered easily. There was not the use of birthdates then as we do today. Also, many of the baptismal records are written in Latin – names can vary in the translations.

  3. George Ashley Ballard son of George Washington Ballard & Sarah Gilkey is my great grand father born 1873 youngest son. Sarah
    died in Nelson Co. Ky. 1876, I have been trying to find out where she
    is buried. George Washington is buried in Louisville Ky. St Cemetery.
