The funeral will be at 2 p.m. Sunday at Holly Grove Lutheran Church, where he was a member, by the Revs. John Mocko and Butch Conrad. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Mr. Conrad was born Oct. 8, 1924, in Davidson County to Adam Efird Conrad and Ada Byerly Conrad. He was a self-employed log cutter, a former member of the Silver Valley Civitans and a volunteer with Davidson County Meals on Wheels. At his church, he was a member of Lutheran Men and Missions and was a volunteer in Holly Grove Church Children's Nursery for more than 30 years. He was preceded in death by four brothers, J.B. Conrad, Simon Conrad, Avery Conrad and Cromer Conrad; and three sisters, Marcella Kennedy, Thelma Younts and Edith Fritts.

[1*] Sarah Ann Bickers (G4/T2), of the Fourth Generation of Robert & Elizabeth Bickers of Orange County, Virginia, was born about 1817 and married Woodford Gambriel, who was born in Kentucky about 1806. It is supposed that they were married in Kentucky. The following information was given in articles referenced in the footnotes below.
Woodford Gambriel became involved in political matters. In 1852, he and others petitioned for a new election precinct which was duly granted, and the precinct of Smallwood was laid out. The place for voting was to be the house of Samuel Smallwood. In an 1859 reorganization, the precincts were designated as townships with few changes in size and shape.
He purchased land in the SW corner of Section 32, south of present day Bogota, and in 1853 he platted the proposed early village of Buena Vista. Initially, he sold lots to Dixon Woods, Silas Grove, James Boldrey, David Richards, Nathan Boldrey, Michael Grove, James Vawter, and Israel Whaley (all were early pioneers like him and had settled in the nearby area.)
Woodford Gambriel died in 1854 and the village never developed. Sarah Ann Gambriel never remarried. For several years, she maintained a home for her two unmarried sons. In 1880, her granddaughter, Julia Hankins, was living with her. In 1900, at the age of 83, she resided with her son, David, and his family.
It is believed that Woodford Gambriel is buried in Hankins Cemetery. In an explanatory note in the inventory of burials, it was said his estate provided a pledge to the Mt. Zion Baptist Church, which once stood nearby. Sarah Ann was buried at Riverside Cemetery at Newton. Apparently she was closer to Newton at the time of her death and bad road conditions prevented the hearse from going to Hankins. Of the four known children, two remained in the local area and were buried in Hankins Cemetery.
The known children of Sarah Ann Bickers (G4/T2) & Woodford Gambriel:
John P. Gambriel (G5/T2)
David B. Gambriel (G5/T2)
Sanford Gambriel (G5/T2)
Nancy A. Gambriel (G5/T2) m. Avery A. Hankins

John Adam Conrad information in Blue
Johann Adam is his German name but in America it is Adam
Johan Adam Conrad born 5 Aug 1738 baptized 1 Dec 1738 son of Johann Geo rg Conrad & Wife at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church of York City, Yo rk County, Pennsylvania from book 'York county Pennsylvania Church Recor ds of the 18th Century Volume 2 by Marline S Bate and F Edward Wright publ ished by Family Line Publication, Westminster, Maryland 1991. pg 131
pg 42 of "Early German Settlers of York Co., PA" Adam was taxed in 176 2. He was b. on Aug 5 1738 and bapt. at Christ Lutheran Church of Yo rk on Dec. 1, 1738. He m. Maria Christina. They had the following Children :Catharina Margaretha b. Nov. 9, 1761 and bapt. at CLY on 17 Jan 1762 Joh an Heinrich b. on Jan. 6, 1763, bapt at TLY on 4 Apr. 4 ,1763 and spo n. by Heinrich Conrad and wife.
Although not proven as correct. The connection of Johan Heinrich born a nd baptized 17 Jan 1762 in Christ Lutheran Church and his father bei ng an Adam. Then an Adam born and baptized in Christ Lutheran Church 5 A ug 1738. Sure appears to be correct family. At same time a Heinrich Conr ad and wife Elizabeth are having a child baptized the same day as Adam Con rad and Adam has a Heinrich Conrad as a sponsor for his child. (This loo ks like brothers although no proof.) No record of Heinrich Conrad birth w as found at Christ Lutheran.

Will 12-6-2009 10:40 AM
James Ballou made his first purchase in this locality early in 1690. The grantor was William Avery, blacksmith, resident in Dedham, Mass. The deed is in the old fashioned verbose form. It describes the premises as containing "Forty Acres of Shruffy meadow and swampy Land, as it lieth in Dedham bounds on the easterly side of Pawtucket river, near unto a Rock called Iron Rock; on the west and Northwest side bounded with a ledge of Rocks; on the Southwest Side hilly round about it; as it is layed out, bounded and marked." The conveyance is made "for and in consideration of good and valuable payment in hand, and well and truly paid by James Ballou, of Providence, under the Government of Rhode Island in New England." The covenant concludes thus: -- "And I, the said William Avery, do hereby Give Lawful seizure and possession of the aforesaid forty acres of Land, be it more or less, as it is layed out by estimation, about a mile and a half from the aforesaid River, near Wrentham bounds." Signed Jan. 13, 1690. Acknowledged Oct. 22, 1691. Recorded with Suffolk Deeds, B. 15, p. 28, &c.
In 1706 James Ballou augmented his real estate in this vicinity, by purchasing of Nathaniel Ware what was technically called "one cow common right" in all the common and undivided lands of Wrentham. This "cow common right" was deeded by John Lawrence to Nathaniel Ware, both of Wrentham, May 1, 1689, and transferred by Ware to Ballou May 1, 1706. How much land was derived from this right, by subsequent divisions and layings-out, we are unable to state; but it must have been enough to make several handsome farms; for we find that James settled his three eldest sons, James, Nathaniel and Obadiah, on homesteads largely derived from it.
April 11, 1713, he divided and conveyed all the above described Dedham and Wrentham lands and rights to these three sons, making them co-equal inheritors. The consideration was "love and good affection," "settlement and well being" &c. James received sixty acres in Wrentham, together with one right in common lands still undivided, and one third part of the Iron Rock meadow, above described as lying in "Dedham bounds." We have all this specified in the original deed now before us. It will be found that the deeds to Nathaniel and Obadiah, of probably the same date and tenor, conveyed to them respectively land enough, in substantial value, to equal the paternal gift to James. Thus ample provision rendered convenient the settlement of these three brothers in the same neighborhood, closely adjacent to each other.
In July, 1726, James made a gift-deed to his youngest son, Nehemiah Ballou, of lands situated on Chepatchet and Pascoag rivers in Glocester, R. I., constituting a respectable homestead. Also, at the same time, he gave to his son Samuel his home farm. On the 20th of April, 1734, he made his Will. He described himself as then "being in health of body, of a disposing mind and perfect memory." His real estate had already been settled on his children, but he had some valuables left, which he parcelled out to each of his sons and daughters. Samuel was made his residuary legatee and executor. In 1741 he seems to have made another arrangement of his affairs, in relation to his personal estate, which he distributed among his children. To Samuel he made over, in legal form, most of his movable property; the consideration being "Love and good will, and the care and attention that he had received from him the past sixteen years, in providing him with maintenance in sickness and health, and what further maintenance, care and attention he might need during his natural life." In this closing settlement, he had each of his chn. give him a receipt of full satisfaction with his bestowments on them. The following is a copy of the one subscribed by James3. The others were substantially similar.
"Smithfield, April ye 18th A. D. 1741.
Then received of my honored father, James Bellowe of Smithfield, my full part of my said father's estate, and do hereby acknowledge myself to be herewith fully satisfied, and do hereby promise to never lay any claim to any other or larger part of my said father's estate, but do hereby acknowledge myself and my heirs to be forever barred by these presents. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal the Day and year above written.
Signed, sealed and Delivered, James Ballou (L, S) in presence of John Inman,
Obadiah Ballou." - [2]

It will be perceived that neither in his Will or later Instruments is there any mention of Mrs. Susanna, the wife and mother. She had prob. passed away during the year 1725, though the exact date has not been ascertained. Nor have we the precise death-date of James himself. We only know that it occurred soon after he had conclusively prepared for it by the settlement of his temporal affairs in 1741. So his mortal form rested, in a good old age, with that of his beloved wife, near the ashes of his honored mother and sister, in his chosen burial place, already described. That unpretentious little cemetery holds undisturbed its sacred kindred relicts, and a portion of the patriarchal homestead, at the expiration of two centuries from its implantment, still remains the heritage of lineal descendants. - [2]

James Ballou is shown, by all the indications of his record, to have been a man of superior abilities, enterprise, judgment and moral integrity. His opportunities for learning and political distinction were comparatively small, but he made the best of such as fell to his lot. He was evidently well endowed by nature, an apt student in the homely school of practical experience, a sound judicial thinker, orderly in his methods of business, a prudent economist, and a noble exemplar of virtue in all the relations of life. Though a commoner among commoners, his characteristics were those of a natural prince. - [2]
