Daniel Parvin
Wanting photo of Moses Ball Jr.s grave marker
My name is Daniel Parvin. Moses Ball Jr is my great grandfather. He was the son of Moses Ball Sr. from Virginia.

Moses was the cousin and neighbor of President George Washington. George Washington's mother was Mary Ball. George Washington's great-grandfather, was William Ball (1615- c.1680), who arrived in Virginia in the 1650s and later brought over his wife, Hannah Atherold (died 1694), two of their four children, and several servants.

Moses and Nancy Ann Ball lived on Four Mile Run adjoining that of General George Washington, existing records state they did surveying together and had business dealings. Occasionally, Moses Ball helped George Washington with some of his surveying and had some business dealings with him.

In Washington's Diary, 22 Apr 1785:

"Took an early breakfast at Moses Ball at Abbington and accompanied by Dr. Stewart and Lund Washington ... and having sent for Mr. Moses Ball, who attended, I went to a corner of the above land .... After having run one course and part of another, my servant William [one of the chain carriers] fell and broke the pan of his knee, which put a stop to my surveying..."

In another diary entry dated May 16, 1786, Washington states:

"When I returned home found Moses Ball and his son John and William Carlin here the first having his effects under execution wanted to borrow money to redeem them, I lent him Ten Pounds for this purpose. When making his will Moses didnít forget this loan.Ē

William O. Conwy July 1881- May 1956
Hi, Michelle
I am doing research on William O. Conway. I found the pic of the grave marker, in Benton Co., Washington, Prosser cemetery. However, there are no dates on the marker. There was also a William O. Conway that was born in May of 1956 and died in June of 1956, on the site. Is there any way that the dates may be the day he died and the day he was buried? It's unique that someone with the same name was born on the same day my great-uncle died. Is there anyway to get a better pic. I live in West Virginia, and doing long distance genealogy is difficult sometimes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated....Thanks

Hi...Noticed one error in Theda's memorial. She and John did not divorce. She died and he remarried later. Thanks for the correction. See the obit in his 2013 memorial for details.

Rufus Johnson
Hi Michele, I am doing research on Rufus Johnson.
There is quite a bit of conflicting info out in geneology land on him. I believe he is the son of Pleasant Miller Johnson and brother to Milly Angeline Johnson. I am trying to locate some of his actual family members. I thought since you were a Ball you may be related to his second wife's family.

New system
Hi, agree with you 100 per cent on the new system.
Some of the information now on my memorials are not correct.

Would you like copy of obituary for Ida Maude Burch who died 1888?

Her first husband was Fred Crump, her second husband John H. Williams. She had daughter Lula Williams with her second husband.
