If Charity Ballard was born in 1794 and William died in 1817, Charity would have been 24, so she could not have had 7 children with William. He could have had children before marrying Charity, but no previous wife is mentioned. Based on her father's census records, she would have been older and born by about 1784. If that's the case, she could have married about 1802 and have 7 children by 1817.. Hereinafter cited as Distant Voices.
