In Reply to: Pelkey to Ballard name change by joy harper of 427

yes, Isaac Pelkey (born 1875) changed his name to Joseph Arthur Ballard. I am a great-granddaughter of his brother John and his wife Hattie Wood. We are not sure why the name change, I asked his son Robert about it a couple of years ago but he didn't give me an answer. His siblings kept the name of Pelkey.
His parents: Joseph Pelkey and Mary Dennis.

His siblings:John J, Ellen Elizabeth, Peter, Napoleon, Mary, Margaret,David Joseph.

His first wife: Eva May Lumley- Married Canada
His second wife: Leora M. Fox, Married in Michigan

His children:Ruth A, Arthur, Clyde H, Robert B, and Clifford Charles
