          Braxton

          Salt Lick

          District 0010

           Lists Isaac Williams age 45 and wife Levina age 39 as neighbors of Dora and Asa. Perhaps they are her parents?

          I'm sorry. The printing on the census was overwritten. It's Isaiah instead of Isaac.

          The names seem to be interchangable

            My maternal grandmother was Gladys O. Ball, born in late Aug 1905.  She lived in Frametown, WV.  Her father was named Asa Ball who married a woman named Dora.  My grandmother was married to George Harper Dobbins who died in his early 30s.  They had 2 children together:  Dolores Lee Dobbins b. 20 Sep 1925, and Ralph Jennings Dobbings b. ? Jul 1927.  My grandmother then married a man with last name of Burns, who had a son named Robert, and a daughter named Lois.  Gladys O. Burns and her new husband had a son, Jerry Burns, my mother's half-brother.  I am trying to find info on Dora Ball's (married name) parents.
