Hello Bruce,

Thanks for your message concerning James C. Ballenger. It is a possibility he might be connected to the Ballenger's that went to Missouri. I am fairly certain that the Missouri Ballengers and the Ballenger's of Rusk County, Texas were at least cousins. They probably all had common origins in Spartanburg, South Carolina. I know that some of the Missouri Ballenger's probably served in confederate army units organized in Missouri. Having trouble finding burial site for confederate troops that died at or near Vernon, Mississippi. Some of them were buried in a large confederate cemetery at nearby Canton. Almost all of the soldiers there are buried as "unknowns". This sure is hard to sort out. Cannot find any records for burials of soldiers that died at Vernon. The town of Vernon no longer exists and is now on private property.
