Fidelie Ball1

F, #53881
     Fidelie Ball was the daughter of Dr. Doric S. Ball and Harriett Sarah Jemison.1
     Comment by DGB: I have found no evidence in the 1840, 1850, 1860 or 1870 census of a "Fidelie" or any spelling that could be this person, but family records indicate she existed. The more likely possibility would be that the name "Sister Fidelie" was taken after joining a religious order and that originally she was either Sarah or Irene. End of comment. Fidelie Ball was a member of a religious order and was known as "Sister Fidelie."1

Louise C. M. Hansen1

F, #53885, b. circa 1854
     Louise C. M. Hansen was born circa 1854 at NY; Comment by DGB: The 1880 census lists her father's birthplace as AL and her mother's birthplace as NY. End of comment.2 She married Robert Jemison Ball, son of Dr. Doric S. Ball and Harriett Sarah Jemison, circa 1879.3
     Comment by DGB: There are "Ball" census records for a widowed mother "Louisa" or "Louise" with daughter "Louisa" or "Louise" in Manhattan NY for 1905 and in Bronx NY for 1910 that are sometimes presented as this family. The problems with that is that the husband/father, Robert Jemison Ball was still living at those times. As well, the birthplace for the parents of the mother are listed as "Germany", but should show as AL and NY to be correct. Similarly the the daughter's father in both censuses is listed as born in NY, whereas the correct location would be AL. End of comment.
