CHARLES P. BALLARD, deceased. Mr. C. P. Ballard was born at Framington, Mass., on Nov. 7, 1820; he came to Athens,
Ohio, in 1840, where he was engaged in mercantile pursuits, and to Springfield just after the war; he commenced
manufacturing in Springfield about 1866, buying out McClellan's interest in the firm of Rinehart & McClellan,
the firm thus formed of Rinehart, Ballard & Co., continuing up to the present time. Mr. Ballard was twice married,
first to Electa Stewart Hawkers, whom he lost by death, and then, on May 15, 1862, he married in New York City
Miss Eunice E. Hibbard, of Massachusetts. Of Mr. Ballard's children three are living, to wit: William Whiting,
who is in Colorado for business and health; and Misses Susie and Helen, who live with their mother in their elegant
home on High street. Mr. Ballard was an exemplary Christian, estimable citizen, and essentially a substantial man
in every way; he was Deacon in the Presbyterian Church at Athens, and Elder in the Second Presbyterian Church here;
he died July 19, 1878. Mrs. Ballard retains her interest in the firm, of which appropriate mention is made in the
historical part of this work. Two of his children are dead - Mary and John. Mr. Ballard's father died the 23d of
August, 1880, nearly 90 years old.
