The Ballard family lived in the area of Lakeside, Chelan County before the 1910 census.  The family burial ground is near the site of the families' first cabin on the edge of Ballard Flats overlooking the Columbia River.  The Ballard family operated a 240 acre farm/orchard on Dover Flats, now Stayman Flats, until their land began to be overrun by setbacks for the railroad and  by rising water behind the Rocky Reach Dam. 
Homesteaders of Chelan Butte by Ford Van Voorhis is an excellent resource for this family.  The book is available at the WAGS Library. [WA CO-04  979.935  Chelan Butte]
