Given that in the census for Hiram K., his wife was named Nancy L., and that it is very easy to confuse H and K, it is likely that this 1849 marriage to Nancy L. Norberry is the record for Hiram K's marriage in Cumberland, Rhode Island. And it is likely, also, that his birth was in the same town of his marriage at age 24.

Name Hiram H. Ballou
Event Type Marriage
Event Date 25 Nov 1849
Event Place Cumberland, Providence, Rhode Island, United States
Gender Male
Spouse's Name Miss Nancy L. Norberry
Spouse's Gender Female

The fact that the 1855 census for James Ballou (see associated question in G2G) as reported by Frank, has Norberrys living in the Ballou household, and that the same census for Hiram, also living in the same town as James, shows Hiram living next door to a Norberry family pretty much seals the deal that Hiram H and Hiram K are one and the same party. That 1855 census for Hiram has a transcription of Hiram F, but a review of the actual entry on the census page, shows an odd entry that could certainly be a K.
