The goal of this project is to help me identify which William Ball of Virginia (and there were many) was the father of Joseph Ball (b. 1805 - 1815) of Defiance, Ohio.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am KC Allen.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- I have eliminated one or two people, including the person I originally thought was his father. It is possible that his father was NOT named William. But who?
- There may be a connection to the Lee County, VA Balls. Joseph named his son George Washington Ball, a habit of that family who recognized their connection to our first president. But I don't have a firm link. Need one.
- there is also some indication that his father might have come from Pennsylvania. Also inconclusive.
