My grandmother was Frances Edna Balch. Her parents were George Washington Balch and Mary Jane Green. Frances Edna Balch married Thomas S. Strahan. They all lived in Nacogdoches, Texas.
I have just started working on the Balch side of the family and was thrilled to run across your website. You have much info on the older family that I had not gotten. I thank you much for making your information public. I enjoyed reading it.
Dr. Hezekiah Balch, President of Tusculum College in Greeneville, TN is my 5-gr grandfather through his son, John Tennant Balch, granddaughter, Paulina Balch Jones, great-granddaughter, Carrie Elizabeth Jones McGaughey, whose daughter, Anna Estella McGaughey Cannon Reaves, was my grandmother. My mother was Loretta Mae Cannon Dykes.
There is extensive information on the Balch family. I will be glad to share what information that I have.
My grandmother was Mildred Janell Balch, daughter of Hezikiah B Balch & Mattie K Boswell Balch. I have been researching the family history, picking up where she left off. I have her original documents that she had of may of her ancestors - closely & distantly related to the Balch's. She was the "Collector" of the family. I know she got to meet some of the Balch's on the east coast years back, she enjoyed it so much and was often topic of discussions. It was great to browse your site and compare notes. Thanks for all the hard work.

I am realted to the Balch side of the family thru Ruth Allen Carroll Spain who is my mothers mother. My mother was Fannie lou Spain Boland. If you will look for the Boland's ancestery and look up Fannie Lou Spain you will see all I have on that lineage. It is not much. But looking also for the Balch lineage to put in our genealogy line. Thanks Mary Ellen Boland Melcer

Interested in learning more of our family history. Great-grandfather was Lowell A. Balch born 1832, died 1917.
I have found that there is a good book on the web, titled "Genealogy of the Balch Families in America", by Galusha Burchard Balch, published in 1897. Look in Google books.
