Obituary: In Memory: Seba E. Ballard, son of the late W.B. and Mrs. Annie Ballard, was born in the old 7th district of Henderson County, February 10, 1884, and at the hour of 2:15 Sunday morning, April 30, 1922, met a tragic death at his post of duty as engineer on a switch engine of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway, in the city of Memphis. October 17, 1904, Mr. Ballard was most happily married to Miss Ollie Sue, daughter of the late James Britt. To this union four children were born and survive, Moran, Mary Sue, James and Annie Laurie, ranging in age from 5 to 16 years. The outpouring of the people of Lexington and adjacent country that met the remains at the station on Sunday afternoon at about 4 o'clock, gave unmistakable evidence of the esteem in which Seba Ballard was held among the people who had known him. The funeral was held at the home on Maple Street on Monday morning, Elders Brodie Hardeman, Henderson, and J.O. Brown and Rev. Fleetwood Ball officiating. Interment was in the Lexington Cemetery with the following friends of the deceased as pallbearers: Joe Rockholt, Carl Edwards, Bud Threadgill, Willis Jones, George Teer, Jack Fielder, John Wadley and Bob Peoples.
