I don't appear to be related to Samuel Ballard, actually. I added him in hopes to connect him to me, but it appears that I am not connected to him anyway.

My ancestry of Ballards came from Monroe County, West Virginia, and descend from a Thomas Ballard who emigrated from somewhere in England way back in the 1600's.

Hello Gayla. I have edited your great great grandfather, Samuel Ballard's profile with your information. I will be looking at finding sources for him soon.

I took a look at your ancestry out of curiosity, and I find it interesting that your ancestors on your mother's side come from Pendleton County, (West) Virginia.

My ancestors of the Botkin/Bodkin last name also come from there. They emigrated there from Ireland in the early 1700's. Small world, huh?

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
