The only Balltown that I see in Iowa is in Dubuque co., which is one
county south of Clayton:

Dear List members,
We are headed to Clayton County in a week to do some research and to meet
some of the nice folks who have helped us with our genealogy. Can't wait to
explore in person!
One place I want to check out is Balltown. My husband's ancestor, William
Devlin, was buried in Balltown, according to notes another relative has. We
first thought it was Balltown, MO, but haven't had any success there. Since
our family lived in Jefferson Township and Guttenberg, Balltown, IA seems
Does anyone know if there is a cemetery there? Is there a place that would
have any burial or death records from 1898 or so? He was very poor, and
only in his 30's when he died of an ear infection. He farmed and mined.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
