Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am specifically looking for John Ball buried in Tomahawk Creek Pittsylvania County Virginia in 1829. He was married to Mary Patton as the verbal and written account goes. They had 10 children who I have an account of. Their births and marraiges and deaths.I have his recorded Will. But I believe everyone is looking for the elusive John Ball of Pittsylvania County VA. Where is he? He is buried there somewhere. Anyone near there that could find him would help a great number of descendents. I am interested in these surnames: Alexander, Arbuckle, Ball, Boo, Gilwater, Feagans (and it's various spellings), Patton, Shelton, Smitherns, Sorge, Warren, Yocum (anybody who has pictures of my grandfather Chester). My time is spent looking after my elderly parents mostly. But this is my next interest.

If I have asked for a transfer request and it is not within 4 generations or I am not blood related, please consider transferring to me anyway. I am asking because they were married to a relative or the relative has deceased so long ago it is impossible for a person within 4 generations to be alive. I sometimes am the only one interested. I will take good care of them and never delete them. I will also transfer to a closer relative. I much appreciate the work of the volunteers who contribute this service to us. Photos of the headstones are a great confirmation that the person is really buried there.

On a side note I have a pet peeve about contributors who copy verbatim off of a newspaper obituary and include info about the survivors and the living and where they live. Please be respectful about privacy and quit this. If you read the rules, you are not supposed to do that. And also contributors who enter info on a person who they aren't certain is buried there.

I am excited to meet cousins and to help out where I can and love communication with you all.

Hitchens, Joseph & Martha
I believe Martha and Joseph's memorials are now correct. I copied pictures to yours and deleted mine as the cemetery is now correct. If I can help with anything else please let me know as I will be in the Burlington, Kansas area until June, 2014.

Hi LeAna
So sorry to hear about Shirley. Evelyn fretted about being where Shirley is now. Yes, my name got kicked around a lot. I probably met Evelyn in 1966 at KG&E. We were good friends starting after my military service ended in 1969. I made one really good suggestion to her for her 401K in 1982 from which she made 50+% return the first year and she loved it! She wanted my financial advice from then on even tho I wasn't a professional financial person. She had me doing her taxes until the end. Great to see you doing Findagrave. Evelyn was always classy!!

RE: Boo family
I think you manage or created a memorial for a "Stena" already. My Great Grandmother Emelia Gustava Boo was a Boo/Holm immigrant from Sweden. In talking with you decided I may have to change some of the branching on my tree. Because, their family was in New York and then went to Portland Oregon. I met a couple Boo cousins who still live in NY. That helped in figuring out I was on the wrong path before.

Elizabeth Canida Warren
Do you know who her parents are? I am continuing the research my own mother did back in the 1960's. I only have her father's name as Hugh Canida (1745- ) but not a mother's name. Elizabeth was my 4x great-grandmother and as you added a personal note I thought you might have more information on her parents. I look foward to hearing back from you. Thank you very much!! Sincerely, Claudia (cjvharris@hotmail.com)

John Ball of Tomahawk Creek
I am also looking for John Ball. I am descended by Thomas Ball/William Dyer Ball/Calvin Morgan Ball Sr./Calvin Ball Jr./Naomi Wreatha Ball-Rowland/Maynard Rowland/Merwin Rowland/me If there's any information you are looking for maybe I have it. Sounds like we're in the same boat however.
