Margaret Ball

F, #14895, b. circa 1865
     Margaret Ball was born circa 1865 at Portneuf Co., QC, Canada.1 She was the daughter of Abraham Ball and Susanna Williamson.2 Margaret Ball married Leroux M. Vreeland, son of Abraham Vreeland and Eleanor F. Rapp, circa 1895.3 Margaret Ball died at Plainfield, Union Co., NJ.1
     She is listed in both the 1900 and 1910 census as having given birth to 2 children and that both were alive. On the 1920 census both Margaret and Leroy Vreeland are listed as having married twice. The 1930 census lists her age at her first marriage as 29, which, because her birth date is not clear at this time, could imply either to her circa 1895 marriage to Leroy Vreeland or an earlier marriage by a year or so. Also, because Leroy's first wife, Carrie Denton, died a few days following the birth of Leroy, Jr., it is assumed that Carrie was the mother of that child. Since there are only Leroy, Jr. and Kenneth Wallace shown living with Margaret on the 1900 and 1910 censuses, if she bore a child by an earlier marriage, still living in 1900 and 1910, perhaps there was a divorce with loss of child custody. Or, more likely, Margaret treated Leroy, Jr. as her own child and that was what she told the census enumerator. Some more research is needed to resolve this confusion.3,4,5
