Mrs Mary Montague Ball

She was married to Joseph Ball.

Mary was married twice. Her first husband was a Johnson. She had a daughter by him named Elizabeth who married a Bonum. The Bonums owned a plantation called Cherry Point in the Northern Neck of Virginia. Elizabeth's half-sister, Mary Ball, spent half her time at Cherry Point Plantation. The other half was with her guardian, Col. George Eskridge, at his family seat, Sandy Point Plantation. George was Mary's guardian from 1721, when her mother died, until she Married Augustine Washington in 1731. In Feb. 1732, it is said that she named her first born son after her beloved guardian. In 1789, her son visited her in the house he bought for her in Fredericksburg, VA. He wanted to give her a purse with money to pay her expenses. She refused. He left the purse anyway. Then he went to New York City to be sworn in as the First President of the United State. Look at Fag #16211162 for more on Col. Eskridge.
