J. J. & Sallie Balow

Ballow?

 

 

 

Anthony & M. Francis

extracted as written; could be

 

 

 

 

Francisco?

It is very confusing here.  Anthony & M. Francis are lined up with James Farmer, thus everyone thereafter is one off.  I couldn't tell if "infant child" had J.J. & Sallie Balow or Anthony & M. Francis as it's parents.  The ages also were off.  Susan J. Hall is listed as being 6y, but she is married. So, the death months may all be incorrect from James Farmer on down.  So, if your ancestor is listed among the following 28 entries, be sure and verify with another source.

James Farmer
