Marriage (1) MARY AMANDA TYNES (2) ELIZABETH WARREN, October 1800 Congregation Church, Midway, Liberty County, Georgia.

Sampson Edward Ball, a first cousin to Martha Washington and the ancestor of all the Balls in Marion County. Sampson Edward Ball married Elizabeth Warren. Martha Warren, her sister, married William Rankins, a native of Ireland and a first cousin to the famous John C. Calhoun of North Carolina.
John Warren and wife, Elizabeth Perkins Warren, came from Liberty County, Georgia before 1811 and were probably among the first settlers to locate near Sandy Hook. The date of their coming is judged by the inscription found on an old tombstone in the Warren Cemetery telling of the occurrence and indicating the time of his wife's death. John Warren's children were Daniel, Reese, John, Samuel, Jessie, Jane, Elizabeth, and Martha, all of whom remained in the county.

HOPEWELL SETTLEMENT was one of the oldest known settlements in Marion County and is now known as Hopewell Consolidated School District. It is located on Bogalusa and Columbia Highway once known as the old Covington Road, ten miles south of Foxworth and two miles north of Sandy Hook. It extended about two miles westward and was bounded by Pearl River on the east. Two of the early settlers there about 1800 were DOUGALD M'LAUGHLIN and JOSEPH WARREN. This settlement has grown and is still one of the outstanding communities in Marion County. We find descendants of Sampson Edward Ball, J. M. Foxworth, and Samuel Martin living in the community at the present time.
