Well, I guess we're cousins! My Grandma is Doc Ball's granddaughter through his son Jesse Lawrence Ball (She's still alive- 93 yrs old). His given name was "Doctor Franklin Ball" after Ben Franklin. You're right, there's George Dock Riley Ball, too. I've got most of the info on the Ball family- verified from William 1792-George 1752- Moses 1717-John- 1670. I've also got some great stuff on Charlotte's father James May. We just went to Whitley/McCreary to visit, and got some cemetery pictures, but Doc Ball's grave wasn't where the death certificate says, or the headstone is gone. Same for Jesse Bogus, Usely Decker. I did see your Great Grandfather's grave at Bethel. I would love to hear any new stories you have about the family- my Grandma is going to be excited- she knows WAY more about the family. You can reach me at my library email ( I work in the genealogy dept)- Thanks!!
