Welcome! Just to let you know, most of my family roots are in Kentucky; so, if related, I am more than happy to transfer the memorial pages I have created. I love to reunite families with their loved ones. If needed, feel free to use the photographs I have posted on Find A Grave for your personal ancestry documentation. If so inclined, you can always give credit for the source.
I stumbled upon the following poem and thought it was so succinct in describing why we do what we do. . .
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hallowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

I hope that you are posting a family tree on ancestry.com or one of the other genealogy websites.
You have a lot of sources to share and a genealogy website has unlimited file space links to sources.
|Janet LaMotte||Horatio Ball|
Regarding: The Virginia Deaths and Burials Index indicate that Horatio Ball died Feb 8, 1873, in Alexandria County, Virginia.
Unfortunately, the index does not take into account all the boundary line changes in early Arlington, VA.
|Janet LaMotte||Edwin Ball|
You raised a good question. Either the dates are wrong or he had a different mother.
|Linda Simpson Davidson||Mary Johnson|
Added the information. Let me know if you would like a transfer.
|Seagull||Rev Benjamin Franklin Ball|
No worries! I made the correction and then transferred his memorial to you as you are family. Have a great week!
