Comments:

I really enjoy the look and facility of your site. However, I would like to gently point out that there are a number of problems with the information as it pertains to the Garrigues family. These problems are common in the information on this family and I don't mean to single you out in any way.

Specifically, there is no documented evidence to support the assertion that Jean Garrigues and Marie de Franchemont were the parents of Matthieu (the immigrant) Garrigues nor is there any evidence connecting the other ancestors La Garrigues and Arnaud Henri. This has been written repeatedly since Edmund Garrigues began the research in earnest a few decades ago. The only statement found to date on this (Jean and Marie connection) is a mere supposition from La France Protestante which claims that Matthieu "may have been" a son of Jean and Marie. However, no evidence has been uncovered which even remotely withstands the genealogical burden of proof.

As for the death date for Jean Garrigues stated as "after 1710 in Holland," this is most probably incorrect. I base this on civil records in Perigord which contain an August 1685 entry for Marie de Franchemont, "widow of Jean Garrigues, who denounced her "protestant heresies." Jean was said to have been a "Judge in Siorac," Perigord. This documentation means that Jean was dead prior to any exodus to The Hague. Marie would have done what she did in an attempt to retain any of Jean's remaining estate. Of course we have no proof that they were the parents of our ancestors anyway but it merits further research. After all, we don't "know" that they weren't either. I might suggest a thorough research of the Catholic registers in and around Siorac in Perigord. Many protestant families of the era were forced to record the births and baptisms of their children in the Catholic registers to establish a legal record for probate purposes.

More pertinent are the errors and additions on dates for Matthieu & Susanne (née Rochet) Garrigues and their first two children: Marguerite Jeanne and François Phillipe. François was born and baptised on October 29, 1704 in Rotterdam as per records of the Walloon (French Reformed) Church in Rotterdam. Write me if you'd like copies. Marguerite was baptised on January 1, 1702/3. She may very well have been born that day as well but we don't know for certain. Another resource, a multi-volume compilation called "Carribbeana" shows a census entry for Matthieu Garrigues in 1708 on the Island of St. Kitts. He is enumerated with his wife Susanne and their son François Phillipe. Marguerite is conspicuously absent and probably indicates that she died prior to their departure from Holland or enroute to the Antilles.

Susanne (as it is most often spelled in Walloon records) was born Abt. 1678 in France. This is based on her death and burial entry in the records of Christ Church in Philadelphia. The cemetery register records the inscription on Susannah Garrigues's headstone as the following: "In Memory of Susannah Garrigues who departed this life the 30th day of Septr 1746 Aged 67 years." This supports a date of birth sometime about 1678. The record of her marriage in The Hague indicates that she was in fact born in France. I have verified and photgraphed this tombstone inscription on the original stone during numerous visits to the cemetery . As late as June 2001 the original inscription was discernable and matches that in the church record.

Again, I really like your page and I send these corrections/additions only in the spirit of genealogical collaboration. If you'd like copies of any of the sources I've mentioned let me know and we'll coordinate to send them to you. I'd also really like to talk to you more about the software or programs you have used to develop this page. I may like to use the same format for my own if possible.

Thanks again and keep up the great work.

Comments:

After years of following this web site I am still amazed
by the enormity of my existence. As a decendent of so
many notable and adverturous souls I constantly question their desire to migrate west during the early days of American expansion.
Amzie Lewis Ball, his son John and wife Nancy, granddaughter Emmy and husband Marvin Hubbard embarked on journeys without securities or guarantees of survival even success. From Indiana to Iowa and on to Oregon. I can only speculate that their motive was the promise of something better or perhaps a desire to move away from an imposing government. They were truly touched by a spirit that is hard define or perhaps find anymore. I hope this spirit is still alive in all of the decendants of Edward Ball.
I periodically tend to the grave site of John and Nancy Ball. It is beautiful little setting in one of Oregon's early pioneer cemeteries. If anyone would like a picture I be happy to send a copy to them.
A note of interest: Marvin and Emmy(Ball) and my grandfather Ernest Victor Hubbard are buried on a hillside overlooking the old Hubbard farmsite. The setting is peaceful but urban sprawl has overtaken the once beautiful area.
Bless you all
Steven Teller

Through a long chain of this and that of no interest, I lost his address when my elderly computer died of gross anemia.

She was decendant of Cornelius Ball (Saratoga County NY, descendant of Edward Ball (NJ), descendent of Alling (or Allen Ball) New England. At a reunion recently with my parents (91) and was given a folder of information that described the family descendants from the ball side. Had heard these stories from my Anut IDA (actually my grandmothers sister) about 50 years ago (I'm 61 now). All of a sudden I now have the ddetails.. Have lots of intrest in the family trees.. on my wifes side there is Budd from Conneticut... Interesting enough Sarah Budd (from Conn) married Cornelius Ball. Could mean there is Budd blood on both sides of my childrens roots.

Anyway would be interested in talking, emailing working with others on this... (have 38 years experience with computers)...

I am trying to do research on my grandparents on my mothers side. They are both deceased now. There are rumors of for sure one child, a son that was taken from my granda whlie she was in a Catholic girl school. There may be another child, possibly a twin to my mother missing. We would like to find them and reunite them with their family, but every effort has failed. I thought maybe this site could give helpful information. My mom is termanally ill. She is the one we are doing this for in hopes that she will be reunited with them before she dies.

How exciting to find this website! I have been trying to link my Hayden B. Edwards to his father, John Edwards, for 12 years. Maybe this is my opening! He was in IN in 1834 with Rev. Moses and David Edwards. He helped Moses establish a Baptist church in New Marion, Ripley Co., IN. He lived in Henry Co., KY prior to that and married Abigail Fitzgerald. Marriage records there give his father's name as John Edwards. Hayden was born in 1811, early records say NY, later records say KY. If this looks in the least familiar to anyone, I'd sure love to hear from you.

am searching for the parents of my gr. grandfather James Clark b. Aug 28 1789 poss. Va, or In. but migrated to Morgan County Indiana where he m. Elizabeth Ladd on 24 of feb 1826. According to Morgan Co Indiana census of 1830 they had two girls under 5, and I know that they had my grandfather Thomas C Clark on Aug 14, 1831, Morgan co In. I learned via internet that they moved to Coles co In in 1834 and that a gentleman named Thomas Clark of Morgan Co died in 1834 which called James Clark back for reading of the will along with Siney Clark Cutler who was mother-in-law to my gr. grandmother's sister Patsey Ladd Cutler, also there was according to some incomplete info given me, a Andrew Clark and wife nancey Clark who also came to sign papers about the will. This elusive Thomas Clark left "All monies to James Clark." i want to find out just who this Thomas Clark was and was he James' father? Any info would be so great.

We also have my father's side of the famil (George W. Hughes) I understand someone has the Guth family history as well. I understand that somewhere along the line that Rose M. Perry (aka Rose M. Hughes, my mom) was related to George Washington. My father's great-grandmother was a cousin to General E. Lee. I see now that our family really dates back on both sides to the beginning of the country. Thank you for your hard work in research.

Surnames of Interest: DURYEE, SUTPHEN
Locations of Interest: New Brunswick; Montgomery Twp.; Six Mile Run;Blawenburg; Somerset Co., New Jersey

Comments:

The first record of a family member in New Jersey is Joost Duryee III who was born in New Jersey in 1709. He married Antje Terhune in 1730, and they settled in Six-mile Run, New Jersey. Their son, Joost IV, died in Montgomery Twp., New Jersey. He was married to Magdalena Bavids, daughter of William Bavids. Their son, Frederick Duryee, was born in Blawenburg, New Jersey 8 Apr 1755. He married Charity Sutphen. Frederick and Charity later moved to Schenectady, New York.
I would like to know if you have any more info on these individuals. I only have tidbits on them myself. My wife is currently working on a fiction-based-on-fact book based on my Duryee family line starting with the first people located in France. If you have any information that could assist me in my research, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
Thank you!!

Hi,
I have some information that I thought you might like.

I have information on Phebe Wade and John Halstead. John Halstead (b. 1754-1841) married Phebe Wade daughter of David Wade and Phebe Ball, New Jersey Planters. John and Phebe had ten children. They are as follows: Clarissa, Robert, Noah, David Wade, Sarah, Mary, Robert Wade, Nancy, Julia and Hanna(Frances). The fifth child Sarah married Luther Hopping. (They are my great great great grandparents.)

Luther along with Sarah's father John Halstead lived in Miamitown, Ohio. John Halstead came to Cincnnati, Ohio after the death of his first wife Phebe 1759-1817 and later married Ann Marsh on January 7, 1823. The 1819 city directory shows him to be a Tailor. He also is the only Revolutionary veteran proven to be buried in the Miamitown Cemetery. He is buried with his daughter Sarah and son-inlaw Luther. He is also a direct descented of King Edward I of England thru Robert La Bruen and Hannah Bruen of Stapleton, England.

Luther and Sarah had a daughter Phebe Looker Hopping who married a William Johnson. They had a son William H. Johnson who was a doctor in Miamitown and Harrison 1869-1886. He married Elizabeth Bennett and they had four children Mable b.1870, Harry b.1874, John and Joseph b. 1876. Mable married Hugh Max and Harry married Viva Perkin in 1915. They lived in Portland Maine. Harry and Viva had a son Richard W. Johnson,b 1916 , d 1984 my father.

I hope this information will be of some help to you.
You have a very interesting sight.

Started looking when my 3rd grade son came home with a very basic heritage assignment.Thought I'd sorta invent a background for him.Your site was the first one my search brought up.Lo and behold, there were names I'd heard over the years(I'm a Ball by marriage).Both my husband and I became very interested (obssessed,more accurately). Contacted a cousin who has "the" family bible.The first entry is Ezekiel Ball b.1782.Then: Elbert R. Ball b.1828,Charles Crowell Ball b.1864 and Edward Vincent Ball (my husband's grandfather) b. 1898.My father-in-law was also an Elbert Roswell Ball.Very uninformedly,we think we can trace the line back to Alling Ball from the information on your site.Just starting the process...And appreciate your research!Thank You.

Mary Perry is my great drandmother. She first married a Dornheim. Their oldest son, Perry Dornheim was my grandfather. Marys first husband died of TB near the turn of the century (1900) and she married George Hiler, who also was married before. They had at least one child together Isabelle. Mary also had a brother, Colnel Perry who was a decorated War hero in WW I, he also died in that conflict. Also both George and Mary are burried in North Dakota at Memorial Park Cemetary, Grand Forks and East Grand Forks are seperated by the red river of the North but are a interrelated community in spite of the fact they are in differnt states.
I know all three Mary Perry, Louis Dornheim, and george Hiler had family from the east. I would like to know more about Marys family.

My Great Gandparents started tracing the family tree around the turn of the 20th century. I am a decendent of Edward Ball. There are many names that come up on your web page/doc that I have in my family history material. I don't have it in front of me now so I can't give you the details. However, I can say that my branch of the family tree were British Loyalist and forced to move north to what is now Canada. settled in Ontario and then over the next 150 years or so made their way out west. Our family home in Salmon Arm British columbia is now a heritage home. We were amongst the first of the settelers into that part of the country. If you have an interest in gaining more info. its quite detailed, going back to the 1600's intergrating with what you already have, I would be more than pleased to pass it on to you. sincerely, Frank Ball 2094 Gull Avenue, Comox B.C.

My paternal grandfather was Harold Ball. He had 3 Children, William, Edith & Robert. They were raised in Lynbrook & Malverne, Long Island. My Father is Robert, He is 73yrs old. Retired & living In Ocean City, MD with my Mother Irene. I am one of 10 Children, most still living in NY. They are: Robert 49,David 48,Thomas 47, Chris 46, Maryanne 43, Jonathon 42, Suzanne 40, Matthew 37, Lauren 35, Jennifer 33. There a total of 11 grandchildren from my family. Uncle Bill (Ball)is widowed (by MaryAlice). He lives in Levittown. I Think he is 82 or 83. Has 3 Kids: Patty Nelson lives on Long Island, Carol Hollingsworth of PA. and Bill Jr. still with Bill. The girls have children, I think Carol has 2 & Patty has 3. Aunt Edith Howard is widowed (by Frank).Living in Point Lookout, on Long Island. They have three children. Marybeth, Jimmy and Ellen. The girls are married, not sure of last names. All have children, don't know names or number..i think total of 6-7.
My Fathers family is from England...Lancashire (?)
I just stumbled on your web page. I know my grandfather came from a large family. Once, He mentioned some family strife..? Claiming that half the family was "written off". This was quite late in his life. At that time, He mentioned some of his siblings names & my Father had never heard of them!Let alone, met them.
I thought we may have a connection..? You never know.
Interesting reading. I forwarded your sight on to all my siblings.

I'm trying to find marriage of Loyalists, Benjamin Bonnell to Sarah/Sally Jones c. 1770-79. They were possibly quakers, but was disowned for taking part in Revolution. In 1783 they fled to Canada from New York City. Sarah was possibly from the Jones family of Bergen Co., Ben possibly the son of Thomas Bonnel of Morris Co., NJ.
Others in my line is John Day/Dey of Hackensach, NJ (another loyalist) who fled to NYC, then to Canada in 1783.

Hi, I'm a Hansell too! I come from a very small family here in the UK. My Grandfather Hansell lived in East London all his life and died 2 years ago at the age of 95. He was said to have had quite a few sisters, but seemed to have lost touch with them, so any news would be appreciated. His name was Henry Hansell, known as Harry.

My grandmother, Mary Cornelia Ball,died when my father was only 6 and his father remarried. He knew practically nothing of his mothers family, except that she had several brothers and sisters, and that they were all born in Coweta County, Georgia. I recently discovered, through a visit to the coweta county Genealogical Society, that Mary Ball was daughter of Doric L, Ball, son of Tuscan Ball, son of Frederick Ball, etc. My father is now 91 1/2 years old. He will be excited to hear what I have learned from your site about his mother's family.

Surnames of Interest: Young, Haswell, Symcox, Webber, Woodhouse - Wolter, Engisch, Max, Buuse, Bauer, Bachmann
Locations of Interest: Oregon (Eugene, Springfield, Medford) also MN, IL, WI, OK, NY, NC, ND, WA, FL & TX

Comments:

Eugene Fisk Young b. May 8, 1881 in Minnesota was my grandfather, I never met him because he died in 1943, the year before I was born. He married my grandmother, Della Bell Haswell on may 8, 1907 in Junction City, Oregon. To date, I have been unable to find any records to verify who my grandfather was or where he came from before he married my gradmother.

It is possible that Eugene's father belonged to one of the Scots-Irish Young families that came down from Canada to WI, NY, MN and other eastern United States areas in the mid to late 1800's. His middle name "Fisk" may have come from his mother's maiden name (this is a theory). We do know there were Fisk family members living in some of the same areas in the eastern United States that the Young families were in during the same time period. Another family rumors suggested that Eugene was descendant of a brother of Brigham Young that did not follow the Morman path. Other family rumor was that he had another family in Minnesota and that he was married to a school teacher or was a school teacher himself - I don't know if there were children connected to this rumor. Anyway the rumor had him running off with my grandmother when she was just 18. The third, also unsubstantiated, rumor linked him to the notorious Younger family. Nothing like a good old family mystery is there?

Anyway, the birth records of my father say Eugene was a traveling salesman. Della and Eugene lived in Washington and Oregon states eventually buying a farm in Eugene Oregon where they sttled down and raised seven children: Ralph Wallace, William langley, Charles Eugene, Margaret Adelaide, Dorothy Roberta, Rose Mary, and Henry Fisk. Eugene died on Nov 13, 1942 in Eugene, Oregon. Outside of what I have just noted above, we know nothing about who Eugene Fisk Young was.

My ancestry research started when I found a very old family bible belonging to Adelaide Florida Haswell who was my grandmothers' mother. Della Bell Haswell was my father Charles Eugene Young"s mother. The parents of Adelaide Florida Symcox were Henry & Mary Symcox. Adelaide Florida Symcox (middle name for the state she was born in) married Charlie W. Haswell in Grayson County, Texas in 1886. Charlie W. Haswell was born on Sept. 17, 1861. Charlie and Addilaide's children were Della Bell (1890), Henry T. Haswell (1888) and Mary A. A. Haswell (1889). They were all born in the Oklahoma Indian Territory.

I noted from the old bible I found that the Symcox and Haswell families were primarily in TX, WA, OR, NC, OK, FL.

My mother was Edna Esther Emma Wolter b. in MN 1908. Her mother and father were Herman and Emma Augusta (Engisch) Wolter. Herman's parents were Henry(Heinrich) and Louise (Busse) Wolter. Heinrich came to America from Germany with his parents Johann Freiderich and Sophie Wolter and a brother named Wilhelm in 1854. Emma's parents were Ernst and Ernestina (Max) Engisch). Emma was 3 years old when they immigrated to America from Germany. They arrived in New York, then went to Illinois, and later to North Dakota and Minnesota. Bachmann and Bauer were family names from Germany (some of them also immigrated to America). While I mostly know their histories, I would still like to get copies of their paper records and obituaries which usually provide more specific information. Most of my relatives on my mother's side (the Wolter side) still live in Minnesota and North Dakota and I hope to make contact with them again at some point.

Sadly, after my parents passed away I kind of lost track of the relatives (my cousins) on the Young side of the family and I would really like to make contact with them again. I assume most are still in OR, WA, or CA.

This is an ancestry search that was started by the finding of a very old family bible which stated with the Symcox and Haswell families who were in primarily in TX, WA, OR, NC, OK, FL (possibly came down from Canada to WI, NY, MN and other eastern United States areas.(Scot-Irish, English).

Re:Sarah Hill(s).Could this be a second Sarah?The one on the "Ball" list is said to be the wife of John Ward Sr.
yet you have her married to a Stephen Davis.John Ward Sr.(Sgt.Lieut.Mr.)died November 1694 and Sarah died 1691.John
Ward Sr. was the John Ward Sr.that Sarah Hill(s) married in
Conn.There were two John Wards in Conn.at the time.In the
book of early marriages in Conn.,there are listed 2 Johns
that married 2 Sarahs.Perhaps John Ward the Turner married a
Sarah Hills,and John Ward married Sarah HILL.I also found Sarah Hill's parents as John and Frances-G.& M.Hx.etc by B.Lee Sorry,I lost my source list in a computer that went
completely blank/and some hard copies in an apartment flood.
So I can't quote much.John Ward Sr. and Sarah Hill are my direct ancesters.I have personal papers back to Gilbertt Shearer Ward-1850's,in Newark/NY.John Ward Sr.Married Hannah
Crane(Huntington) after the death of Sarah-1691.Sarah was the mother of all the children.

Researching family history - g grandfather Elisha Ellsworth Ball was born in Franklin Co. IA 5/06/1864 to Nathaniel Ball and had a brother Will Ball of IA. Elisha died in Flagler Co. Colorado in 1940. There is very little information on the Ball side of my family so I don't know where Nathaniel came from or his wife's name.

I recently was contacted by a relative on my mother's side of the family. I now have a good start at finding the Force/Minton/Schocklin/Abbott connections. Previously, all that I knew about my great grandmother, Emma Schocklin, was that she came from Whippany, NJ, but nothing about her ancestors. Now I know that although she lived most of her life in Whippany, as did several generations, she was actually born in Ohio when her family was there for a brief time. I know that her maiden name was Minton, and that her grandfather, Joseph Force, fought in the Revolutionary War.

I've "stumbled" onto the Ball Room site and been told about is in the email group that I belong to. It's Essex/New Jersey (That's not the exact name, but close to it.) My great great grandfather did an extensive study of a number of branches of the family tree. There's even a Ball in there. I've seen the name, but haven't waded through the information sufficiently to have it organized to quickly locate that ancestor. I will let you know when I find her. I think it's a 'her'. In any case, I do appreciate all the information you've amassed here. I love the historical stuff on Newark - including the maps. I can't get MrSID viewer to print. Is there a trick to it? Also, can't get the other large maps to print more than is on the screen. Oh well. Thanks again, Sherri Cann

HI,

For interest I began searching for my surname on the web and came across the details for Fieldus on your pages. I would be interested to see if ayone has any data relating to the origin of the name.

Burkes Peerage in the UK has done a partial trace but cannot determine a coat of arms or the historical name origin. I do, however, have the address details of all the Fieldus families they were able to trace around the Globe (UK, USA, New Zealand & Australia).

If you can help me with my data search, or if my list of details may help you with yours, please email me.

Kind Regards,

Trevor Fieldus

I have researched as far back as my great great grandfather, John Beecher b1830, of Longville, Ballynoe, Co. Cork, Ireland, who married Catherine Cotter and had 11 children. I would like to find out more about him, his parnets, brothers and sister etc.
Also I would like to know more about the origins of the Beecher name in Ireland, the first mention is of a Fane Beecher who came to Cork c.1580 during the Munster plantation. He fled Ireland because of a rebellion against the plantaion and later sold his estate to the Earl of Cork. Next mention of a Beecher is of a William Beecher shortly after the Cromwellian Plantation of Ireland.
I would welcome any information on the Beecher family in Cork.

I found your site interesting. The parentage and ancestry of my great-grandmother, Mary Susan BALL has been one of my brick walls. She m. Robert Brown Courtney in Iowa. Her death certificate lists her father as B. F. Ball and her mother as Nancy McCurner. Mary was born in 1842 in Indiana as was her mother. Her father was born in VA.per all the census records. I think the B. F. may stand for Benjamin Franklin.

I am a desendent of Pioneer Ezra Meeker. He blazed the old Oregon Trail in 1906 with William Mardon installing monuments along the way to perserve it. He came to Oregon in 1852 with his bride Eliza Jane Summer and their first son, Marion. They settled in Puyallup, Washington where they are buried. Had it not been for the Webber research group I would have not known this. Their contributions are greatly appreciated.

Comments:

John Wesley Burnett is my great-grandfather on my mother's side, my grandfather is Frederick Isaac Burnett. He had many siblings: Henry, Russell, Clara are full brothers/sisters, Winthrop, John, Elmer, Edward, Helen and Ida are half-brothers/sisters.

Our John Wesley married a Maddox/Maddux but we have no dates or places of the marriage. Nor birth or death date of either one. My great grandmother's given name is unknown - the only information we know is that she was born and raised in Christfield, Md. and she was a Maddox.

Frederick married Gladys Fishburne {Summerville, S.C} on 6/19/1909 and adopted a daughter {my mother} from one of his sisters and raised her as their own.

Our Burnett family Bible was destroyed in a house fire many years ago so I have no dates available to me at this point except that Frederick Isaac was born 6/30/1893 and died 1/1969.

My ethnicity is mixed: Black, Indian and White. If anybody has any information or thinks we may have a shared ancestor, please feel free to post or drop me an e-mail. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I believe our family has a few hidden skeletons which may make it difficult to trace our family tree. This is something I am undertaking for my children as well as myself.

Thank-you!!

Comments:

I have been working for many years on a line of John Brown and Esther Burwell's descendants -- those of Stephen (1680-1767) and Prudence Price. My descent as close as I can figure it is from Stephen to his youngest son, Joel (d. 1784, his oldest son, Nathaniel (d. 1790), his son Israel (d. 1841), his oldest son, Nathaniel Reynolds (1807-1885). But I have put quite a bit together on Stephen's other sons, Stephen, Caleb, and Benjamin, all holding lands along Valley Road then across the present county line to the Elizabeth River. The line keeps intersecting with other old Elizabeth and Newark families. I also have two missing wive's last names, which are surely also from the area. Joel married (1) Molly and (2) Hannah, and Nathaniel married Sarah. Connections suggested by guardians, etc. -- Townley, Crane, Pierson.

Comments:

My maternal grandfather was Abraham Ball, son of Abraham and Susanna Williamson Ball who were married in Quebec City, Canada in 1846. They moved to Portneuf in Quebec and raised their children, Ann Jane, Elizabeth J.,Samuel, Susanna, Abraham Jr., Sarah, John, Edward and Mina. Abraham moved to New Jersey and married Edith Denton in 1890. The only other sibling I have located was Edward,who lived in Canada the rest of his life and has two granddaughters now living in Ottawa. My Ball grandparents had six children all born in Bayonne, NJ including two sons, Milton J. and Harry. I was told that the first Abraham Ball came over to Canada with 4 brothers. One was Charles and I believe one might be John as he has witnessed births. They were said to come from Ireland, but I have no other information after visiting the Archives in Quebec City and Ottawa.

I'm trying to trace the ancestors of my grandfather, William Yancey Odle (b. 1861 in or near Burkesville, Cumberland County, Kentucky, and who married Julia Ann Miller there). His father was James Matt Odle, born Nov. 27, 1800 in Cumberland County, Kentucky. James Matt married Julia Ann Rutledge. William Yancey Odle and his wife Julia moved to Texas sometime around 1884. I have no information earlier than this. Does anyone have a link to James Matt Odle and Julia Ann Rutledge Odle or to their ancestors?

Maureen De Bolle told me about your site. My search has led me to a bit of a dead end. My ancestor, Mary Alker, came from Communipaw, NJ. Her father, John came from England. I do not have a surname for John's Wife, Hannah. However, I know they were Dutch Reformed Church and I know that Van Winkle is also a family name (although the geneology is unknown). My problem is that the cemetery (family lore)in which they were buried was dug up to make way for the railroad. Apparently, no records were kept. I'm looking for anyone who can help me put the pieces together. Thanks in advance if you can help

John Maxson 6 Apr 1800 at Harrison Co Va (WV). This couple after giving birth to 4 children joined the Shakers at Watervliet Shaker Community. Elizabeth Ball may have been the widow of __?__ Ball and the child of James Davis and Rebecca Brand. I will be searching the site for connections but will appreciate any tips.

HI,
You had answered my query about the Skuylkill Club. I am sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I spent a lot of time this summer at the hospital--my brother lost his seven year battle to cancer at the age of 73.
I am descended from Samuel and Mary through their daughter that married Henry Robinson, after his death she married Isaac Connelly. Rebecca died in 1784 and is buried in Philadelphia, St. Pauls Churchyard with Henry and three of their children. Isaac remarried, moved to Centre county and then to Venango County. Hope to hear from you.
Pat

Your site is excellent. However, I found an error. I know because the person is my great great great grandfather. Samuel. I know where you got your information as I saw it in the journal. I also have a record showing Samuel B. Strong was married to Susan E. Casterline, both of Morris County, NJ. Instead of Samuel being married to being married to either Hannah or Martha Badgely (also surname spelling is wrong -they were sisters),William, Samuel's brother was married to the sisters. Besides knowing my family, you can locate some of the family on the net as at least one William's wives and some children were buried at Barre Center cemetary in Orleans County, NY. The Strongs moved to NY for time with their mother Ruhama Strong after their father John Strong was lost at sea in 1800.

Please correct and get back to me so it's corrected. That way, others won't be led astray. Thank you.
Below, I have copied what is out at the Orleans County genweb site for the cemetaries along with other info, such as the census record(also out on this site) about my family.

I was an army brat and never knew this side of my family, and would dearly love to learn about them. Also, Minnie Mae had a secon marriage to Kelly Hill McCoy of the famous fued.
Any info about them would also be appreciated. I hope to find someone who can give me some information. Oh yes, Bartoe came from an Italian name that I don't know. When the family immigrated to the US from Italy, their name was changed to Bartoe. Thank you, Charlotte Pennington

I am 26yrs old and I have been very interested in finding out more about my family's history and roots, if anyone out there has more information please feel free to email me. This is what I know so far from speaking to my Dad(Edward John Ball III) and other family members;
My father was born in Massachusetts, when he was a small child his family(Edward John Ball II, Barbara Johnson-Ball, Judith, and Richard) moved to Camden, Me. I know from speaking with my family that our ancestry is Welsh/Irish. t I was hoping to find out more about my family. Again, if anyone has further information I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks, Ted.

Comments:

I've just recently begun researching my ancestry. My Grandmother and Aunt had put together a family tree tracing our roots to George Washington (the President) through his mother (through the Ball lineage). We are unable to locate their research since they passed away. My Aunt and Grandmother's maiden name is "Stevens". Their parents were Maude and Frederick Stevens and Maude and Frederick had three children: Maude (my Aunt b. 1902), Ruth (my grandmother b. 1904) and Howard (born approx. 1906) they were born and raised in NJ/CT. Maude Stevens' (my great grandmother)maiden name was Peck and I believe her mother's maiden name was Ball. Any information that anyone has to help me trace my roots would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

and does not know any family history other than her gmother, Paulina, was a US citizen. The gfather left after their daugher was born. Story was all their children died of SIDS
and he couldn't bare to be there for another one. I can find no record of anyother births from those two either.

Any assistance in where to start looking would be greatly

Comments:

I was born in Topeka, Ks., in 1938, the eldest son of Gene
Eber Ellis, born in 1910 in Meade, Kansas, the eldest son of
Eber Ellis and Bessie "Elizabeth" Conger. Eber Ellis had 3
brothers and 4 sisters. His mother's maiden name was Mack.
Eber & Bessie "Elizabeth" Ellis were divorced after the births of two children, the aforementioned Gene Eber and his
sister, Elizabeth. Both later remarried, Eber then having
additional children, but Elizabeth having no more issue. Eber remained in Meade County, Ks. until his death. Elizabeth married Stuart Nelson and spent most of her life in Council Grove, KS., where she died at age 103 in April of
1995. Both Elizabeth and her daugher are members of the DAR.

My mother is Ramona Foster Ellis, born in Topeka in 1916 to
Thomas Oliver Foster and Myrtle Glenn Dearing Foster. Myrtle was 108 yrs. of age this past Thanksgiving and still resides in Topeka, as do both my parents.

I am particularly interested in information regarding the
Ellis family. The divorce of Eber and Elizabeth was not
amicable and from the time my father was about 4 years of age, there was no further contact with Eber Ellis, and no
information was forthcoming from my grandmother, Elizabeth.

Any information you could provide would be appreciated and if you require same from me, do not hesitate to let me know.

Just started researching my Ball lineage. Have made it back to G.G. grandfather William Ball and his wife, Matilda Pratt Ball. Came from England in late 1800's. Landed in Sandwich, MA. Both died in East Liverpool, OH. G.Grandfather, Alexander was born in Sandwich, MA shortly after the ship docked. He was born June 19, 1886 and died October 2, 1952 in East Liverpool. If any of these names sound familiar, or if you are currently researching this same Ball line, please let me know and maybe we can work together uncovering the Ball's in England.

I am trying to find the birth family of Henry Belding Cooke
that I think was Belding. If anyone knows of stories from their family that would link me, I would be a happy camper.
He was my Great Great Grandfather from the Hadley, MA. area.
He was born in that area. Lotus Hill Cemetary in Montague, MA and married into the Payne family also buried in the same cemetary. The only child that survived of his 4 was my Great Grandfather. All his other children died young. except Louisa who got married in her 20's before she died.
I am sure that Henry Belding Cooke was adopted because his children spoke of it with my dad's cousins, the grandchildren. Now that all of his children are passed on, all we have are a couple of photos that show a darker skin to a couple of his grandchildren, high cheek bones and shovel cuspus teeth. There were Mohawk indians in that area.There was also a Henry Belding settled in and owning land in Hadley in the 1840's. Henry Belding Cooke was born in 1833, March. A Belding family moved out of Hadley and to Williamsburg, MA in the 1840's. Twin boys were botn to that family and there were two brothers that came to visited him and met his wife while he was away on business once. Money was exchanged because of the adoption is the family story.

We think that an ancestor by the name of Obediah Denham who founded Bethel, Ohio married a Mary Ball. On the referenced page, under "P.58" I found a Mary Ball as the child of Timothy Ball and Esther Bruen Ball who married an "Obediah Crane {?}" identified as a founder of Bethel, Ohio. We are fairly certain that Obediah Denham was the founder of Bethel. I would be interested to know more of the history and source regarding Mary Ball and Obediah Crane.

Wow - Fantastic Web Site. This is my 1st time using the Web to search for genealogy. I'm amazed at all the info available. I worked on family research from 1978-1985, then let it slip. I'm now interested in starting again. (Am still a member of the Ontario Genealogy Society) I would appreciate any advise as to the best, affordable PC based genealogy computer program to get. What is everyone using?

I'm researching my own line in Germany (Heinrich Rauer B.1861; Heinrich Jurgens B.1841; Wilhelm Markwart B.1862)as well as my husband's (James D. Ball) line in England. The farthest back I've got is to "Emmanual Ball", 1838-1898, in Wombridge, Shropshire, England and his wife Emily Newness. They had 9 kids: Abraham (our line), Eliza, Elizabeth, Emmanual, Johah, Albert, Thomas, Arthur & Arron. He was a coal miner and they lived in a row house which also housed 3 other unrelated Ball families, all with lots of kids. My search ended there.
It would be great if I could connect to a distant cousin and get further back. I imagine Emmanual had siblings and lots of older relatives, who may have immigrated to North America earlier on. It's a tad hard /expensive looking oversea's for info (at least the way I used to do it), but that's probably where I have to continue from. Hopefully the Web & the Internet Community can help in my quest.
Thanks in advance for any help you might offer.

Surnames of Interest: Low
Locations of Interest: New Jersey, West Virgina, Ohio, Illinois, Washington state

Comments:

The Line of Low we are tracing is Dutch, probably from Haarlem, New York or Ulster Co., New York. This line is in Preston County, West Virginia by 1772. In 1842 the family marries in with the Skinner, Wortman, Drake, Smith lines from New Jersey. All of the people in the family are a mix of English, Dutch, French, Scottish backgrounds. The mix seems to occure in New Jersey. The key to our search is the name Nathan Low. When the Skinner, Wortman, Drake, Smith lines are added. These people were Separate Baptists who came from Morris Co. and Essex Co., New Jersey to found the first Baptist church west of the Allegany Mountains. Eighteen to twenty families made that move in 1770. Many of those people returned to fight in the revolution for New Jersey. They then returned to Somerset Co., Pa. to continue their settlement at Turkeyfoot. The Low family may have belonged to that group or have come up the Potamac Valley with other Dutch settlers which originally came to Virginia in 1732 from New York and New Jersey. There were eighty families who made that trip. These people carry prominent family names which found many towns in the mid west and continue on to the pacific coast where the Low family founds both Seattle, Washington and another Low family founds Long Beach, California.

I find the Riggs information on the web and in Ancestral File to be most confusing. For instance, John Riggs b. 1649 Newark is married to Frances Colburn. However, some records also show their son, who is also John, married to a Frances Colburn. I spent a week in Salt Lake City recently, and found nothing to prove that. Were father and son both married to a Frances Colburn? Any proof? Ancestral File also has Thomas Riggs, b 1525 married to himself!!!

Comments:

To whom it may concern:

I have a Mary Ball (don't know her birthdate or place) but do have her date of death. She died on January 24, 1816 in Clermont Co., Ohio. She was married to a Thomas Brown.
They had a daughter named Mary who was born on 10/24/1756 in Harden Co. Virginia. She was married to a James Sandusky.

Do you have any more information on this Mary Ball?

Sincerely,

Andrea Nowlin

Trying to locate information on the A.F. Bannister & Co., of Newark New Jersy.

I have in my possession a bone handled barbers straight-razor that has been handed down in my Richardson family. This item belonged to my grandfather who was born in Anniston Alabama in 1890 died in Colquitt County, Georgia. It's possible that this razor predates my grandfather and may go back more generations. If I could locate information on the A.F. Bannister Company, I may determine if my ancestors passed through Newark New Jersy or if an A.F. Bannister traveling salesman sold it in Alabama.
Any help on locating information on the A.F. Bannister Company of Newark, New Jersy will be appreciated. This business may be 100 years old ....or 200 years old, I do not know how old this family heirloom is.

We will share the information we have on these families with anyone interested . We have very little information on the Van Neesher, Gavel and Mullen families. We are now trying to connect our ancestor, Henry Wanamaker, to the ones found in Bergen Co., N.J. He was a Loyatist. He would have been born 1750 - 1756. He had brothers Peter and John, and was married in the United States to Leah Van Neesher (Appleby). He was in the N.J. Volunteers. We believe he was the son of Harmanus and Suzanna Wannamaker. But we cannot find records to prove this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. June

I am researching my grandfathers family; Hess, Camp, Corson.
Jesse Corson, Sr. m:Martha Somers; one of their children, Aaron Corson, m: Rebecca Van Gilder;their daughter, Rebecca married Jonas Hess; who were Jonas parents?
I'm trying to research my grandfathers side of the family. His name was Rozell Camp Hess, he married Ossie Margaret Diamond, my grandmother, in 1918 and moved to Calif. in the 1930's. He was born in 1887 in Marmora, N.J., USA. His father, My g grandfather, was Uriah Young Hess, born 1857 in Cape May Co., N.J., his mother, my g grandmother, Anna E. Camp; Uriah married Eva Dibbs after Anna died. Rozell's grandfather, my g g grandfather, was Jonas Hess, his
grandmother, my g g grandmother, Rebecca Corson on his fathers side, we believe they are also from Cape May Co.. We have names of Jonas' and Uriah's children but do not know much else. We have no records at all on the Hess side before Jonas. Did he migrate and if so when and from where or was he born there, could he have changed his name from Hesse, Van Hessel or Hesselszen?
Does any of this sound familiar? Any help would be appreciated.

Comments:

I have more info for you for some people:
Job Crane; Caleb Dodd and Mary Bates child names Ezra Squires Dodd. Ezra's kids Ted and Henry went on during the Civil War to become one of the 15 ever secret service agents. I have their picture somewhere. Ted later commanded the Colorado - Arizona - Kansas frontier during the Civil war. He is noted for saving the apache and navajo indians from a holocost. His brother Henry Dodd was the primary advance scout for General Grant. Henry found the battle grounds first. Henry later formed the Pinkerton detective agency in Chicago, IL with fellow secret service agent Allan Pinkerton.

Their fathjer Ezra was a US Senator around 1843 from Ohio. I guess the kids had an "in" with President Lincoln and Johnson according to news articles.

Job Crane second marriage at age 75 to our Elizabeth Pearce age 28, ended in a front page 'frontier news' divorce case in 1800 to 1802. She was contesting Job's will before he died. Job was divorcing her at age 90. I have many of the court case material.

I have about 1,800 names in my tree of people who descend from our Henry Pearce 1726-1788 born in england and died in Fairfield, NJ. The old Pearce burial grounds on Horseneck Road, Fairfield, NJ was named Hillside Cemetery in the late 1800's. My uncle George and I caught 2 embezzlers last 1996 and are cutting the lawn 15 times a year. We've got the funds up. The NJ Cemetery Board was a sham in helping us. No support.

Anyway, how much is this program. How could I ever do this? I work as a computer consultant. So maybe I could learn??

Comments:

I have been doing extensive documentation on the Byarlay family. Michael Byarlay immigrated from Holland in about 1732 through Baltimore, Maryland. He came with a cousin, Jacob Byarlay, who went to North Carolina. Michael went to Philadelphia. Eventually he ended up in Shephardstown, VA (WVa). His son, Michael was a Revolutionary War Veteran. He (Michael II) eventually ended up in Jackson Co, IN in 1832 living with his son Samuel M after having been in Carter and Washington Co, Tennessee. That is where the connection with the Crane family of Jackson Co. occurs. I have a fairly extensive documentation, but am missing some children of Samuel M. According to the 1840 Indiana census, he had 10 children, I only know information on 8 of the so far.

It's truly glorious seeing all of my fellow Balls! I would just like to know if anyone out there has any record of my great-grandfather, Louis Kenneth Ball. I know nothing of him except that he was born sometime around 1897, married Pauline Rives, and lived in Southern California. I have also heard that he or his family may have been from the South.

Locations of Interest: Connecticut Farms, Elizabethtown, Essex County, New Jersey

Comments:

I have the original deed for land my gggg-grandfather Joseph Davis purchased from David Bonnel in 1753. The land was part of a division called "Connecticut Farms". The deed says this land was located in Elizabethtown, Essex County, New Jersey. Joseph's wife is named Lydia in the deed. I would love to discover more information about this family, especially, the names for Joseph's parents and children. I would also love the surname for Lydia and her parents names. Decendants of this family, Aaron and Rebecca Wade Bruen Davis moved to Knox County Ohio in 1719. It is recorded that this land in Knox County was given to Aaron's father Joseph for his participation in the Revolutionary War. Rebecca's family were also Revolutionary stock. Knox County, Ohio, history records say that Joseph, Aaron's father, was one of George Washington's "body guards". When I visited this web site I was drawn to the Ball family because "two" Joseph Davis' are listed in the genenology records. I was hoping to find a link to "my" Joseph Davis and his decendants. Any help you could provide would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

At this point I have more on the Donnelly and Phillips then I do on the rest of the families. My G-father Cranes cousin, Alice Daly Forsyth, did a lot of genealogy before she died, I never met her but wished I had. I don't know anyone in the family that kept up with her so all of her work is lost with the exception of the small amount I have from my Aunt who went to see her in the 70's. I am trying to find the society in New Orleans she belonged to, maybe they know what happened to her work. Whether I find her work or not I will continue doing what she loved most, searching for our ancestors.

Most interested. Writing a major work of William Peck(e) descendant- The Honourable William McDougall, key framer of the Constitution and a Father of Confederation of Canada,
First Governor of Manitoba and the North West Territories.
Developing McDougall's ancestry. Through the Owen Family of New England, we are back to Charlemagne. The Peck Family lines are impressive, and we have access to very early genealogical works and their quadruple 12x14 charts that connect the Peck family to the Royal House of Scotland through the Foljambe Family and marriage of the daughter of Ann Baliol, daughter of John Baliol, King of Scotland. Connection material not on LDS Ancestral File, yet we have the approved by the 'Family' Foljambe.

Comments:

The Ball Genealogy material was excellent. First time I've seen such extensive sourcing on a home page. Very useful for verifying sources. However, navigation through long name list was awkward. If surnames like Morris/Johnson/Jones could have their own given name alpha sub-index, it would help navigate through the list. Clicking "Next" at the bottom of the page is a pain. Alternatively having to second-guess the Individual number in the URL took almost as much time. Screen display in Netscape 3.0 was good and server response on a Sun. Night at 8 PM ET was peppy. Nice work. Cookie Pal rejected 208 cookies you offered. That is higher than even Microsoft Network's sites! Regards.

Comments:

To Ball et al,

Thank you for sharing your family with us. I found you quite by accident some months ago, bookmarked you and then
forgot. Until now. What you've done - with the help of
Utah and a lot of key-punching relatives - is remarkable.
My two younger brothers have embarked on a similar expedition. The Robinson family tree - thus far - extends
back to at least 1170 and a "black prince" in England. My
mother's past ends sadly in some remote Irish town about
200 years ago. Like the Balls, the Robinsons are the
quintessential WASPS - the people who thought this land and
the people on it was somehow their property. We know now,
of course, that it is *we* who are only renters of the land -- just as every human being is simply borrowing some space
for a mere millisecond in sidereal time.

But that is not to demean or diminish the wonderful work you
have done. History is important. If only to help us
understand who we are today.

Thank you again.

Looking forward to the memory,

rob robinson

Comments:

Steven A. Myers: Seeking information on James Hathaway, I believe the middle initial is A.
Originally from England, (town not known) His parents sent him and a maid to America after the
maid became pregnant, As near as I can determine this happened around the early to mid 1830's
He died during the war, on may 16th 1862, at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, List age at 48.
He was the musician, played the fife. He didn't have to fight but picked up first discarded musket,
and fought until the battle was over. He had a large family and was a farmer. Some of the children
were, Savannah, John, Fanny, George, Catherine, Michael and Harriet. There may have been others.
I am seeking James Hathaway's parents names and siblings. Any other Information would be
appreciated. Hoping to contact relatives of his here and abroad. He would be my Great grandfather
way back. Thank you for your time and any help you may be able to give if any.

P.S.:THERE WILL BE A HATHAWAY REUNION AUG. 16 1998

Trying to research my Ball Ancestors. Once owned by John Downing of Fauquier County circa 1855, Clayton Ball and his mother Margaret b. 1835 in the same county are registered at the Warrenton Courthouse. My Ball family has lived in Fauquier County from the late 1700's to present, I am trying to find out the Ball family that owned them. If you run across the afore mentioned names in your family wills, please send the information on.

Thank you, and may the spirit of your ancestors guide you.

Comments:

As genealogist for the Muchmore Family Association, I am on hyperalert for common names and areas. Also, we are creating a web page for the MFA. Because of the size of the database (8000 names) we are interested in how others have handled large family bases. This site is both impressive and inspiring.

Comments:

I'm hoping either William or John Ball who were related the shipbuilders in New York is the father of my ancestor, Dr.William G. Ball. Our family has always been told his family were shipbuilders in New York. He was born about 1805 in New York. He possibly had a sister named Ann P(ettibone). He was married in Indiana, then moved to Iowa. Two of his sons were killed in an Indian attack in 1862.
