We, too, have been told that my husband's family is related to the Washington's through Martha Ball and Mary Ball Washington.
We were wondering if you had any additional
info on your Ball ancestor (b. 1799) from
Prince Georges Co., MD. Our known Ball ancestor is Ziza (unsure of spelling) Ball
who married W M or Wm. Hill. They had a daughter, Mary Jane (b. 1828 in Guernsey Co., OH), who married Ashford Dennis in Guernsey Co., OH in 1849. We have
been searching for any Ball or Hill connections. If you think our ancestors may be a match please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
