      (2) A household headed by William BALLARD is listed in the index to the 1840 census of Des Moines County, IA. [Also listed in the index to the 1840 census of Des Moines County, IA are households headed by Wiley BALLARD and William A. BALLERD, but the ages of the oldest males in those households do not seem to fit the age in 1840 of the William BALLARD who is the subject of these notes.] The compiler has not examined the actual census pages on which William BALLARD, Wiley BALLARD and William A.

      Assuming that William is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between about 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that the rest of the persons in William's household are children of William and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of two sons (one of which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, and one of which sons would have been born between 1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census) and two daughters [which daughters would have been born between 1835 and 1840, according to the 1840 census].
