Ann Stanley was born on 7 June 1741[1] in Hanover County, Virginia Colony. She was the daughter of Thomas Stanley and Elizabeth Crew. She passed away before 1820 in Guilford County, North Carolina.


Ann married William Ballard on 11 November 1763 in Hanover County, Virginia Colony.[2] Prior to the marriage, William "received a certificate from New Garden Monthly Meeting, Guilford Co., NC, to marry Ann Stanley and "granted certificate to Cedar Creek Monthly Meeting, Hanover Co., Va., to marry."[3]
