IRVIN BALLEW resides at Danville, being one of the well-known citizens of this flourishing village. He was born in Carroll county, Missouri, on April 14, 1860, the son of C. W. and Mary (Shipp) Ballew, natives of Missouri, and of Irish ancestors. They are still residing in Howard county, Missouri, the father aged eighty-five and the mother seventy-five. They are retired farmers and the father served one year in the Civil war. These worthy people were the parents of eleven children, named as follows: Louisa Amick, John H., William H., Florence Davis, C. W. Irvin, R. E., J. S., J. L., Virginia B., Alamang and C. E.
Our subject was educated in Howard county, Missouri, and remained with his parents until twenty years of age, when he began farming for himself. Two years later he came to Denver, Colorado, and there was engaged variously for nearly two years. He went thence to Texas, where he remained for two years, after which he came to the Wood River country in Idaho, and there remained three years. In 1890 we find him at Fairhaven, Washington, whence he journeyed later to Ellensburg and in 1892 came to Loomis, Washington. In 1894 he was in the Cariboo country and in 1898 settled at Danville. Mr. Ballew has mined in many of the leading camps in the northwest and is now interested in some good property in the Franklin camp, west from Danville. In July, 1898, Mr. Ballew married Miss Pearl Rogers and to them one child has been born, Gladys. Mrs. Ballew has one sister, Julia Stocker.
Mr. Ballew is active in politics and is allied with the Democratic party. He is also a member of the Eagles. [Source: “An Illustrated History of Stevens, Ferry, Okanogan, and Chelan Counties in the state of Washington”; Western Historical Publishing Company, 1904. Tr. by Rhonda Hill]
