I can add to what you have: Col. Ballenger was the son of Presley Ballenger and Nancy Dold. He had a brother Elias, probably the Elias Ballenger 2-7-1825 9-6-1894 who served in Marcus'company and is buried in Rosedale, New Hope Church Cemetery. He had sisters Mary (md. Calvin McDowell of Spartanburg, SC), Martha (md. Thomas N. Smith of Floyd Co.), Elizabeth (also md. Thomas Smith), and Rebecca (md. Aspacio Earle of Floyd Co.). His wife Aphiah died in 1905.
Col. Ballenger died at his Floyd Springs home. He is not listed in Kinney's very fine books on Floyd County Cemeteries. I'd imagine he's buried in or near Floyd Springs. Any information on his burial place would be greatly appreciated.
