Letisha "Lettie" Ballance Barco
According to Lettie's tombstone in the Ballance Cemetery at Waterlily, NC, she was born February 10, 1841 and died June 5, 1930 and was the wife of Frank Barco (1831-1904). Currituck County Marriage Book A indicates that "Franklin Barcow" married Letisia Ballance on January 9, 1861. In the 1850 Roanoke Island census, "Letty Balance" was listed as age 9 and living in the home of Charlott Balance, age 45. In the 1860 Courthouse Dist. Letty is living in the home of Bethuel & Mahala Ballance and is listed as age 18. Charlotte appears to be dead or remarried by 1860. It is believed that Charlotte is Letisha's mother and that Charlotte was the 2nd wife of Leven Ballance.
