From Abigail Ball, wife of John Johnson, Jr., has come down to us the tradition that her father's family and that of Mary Ball mother of George Washington were branches from the same stock. Abigail's lineage is authenticated by documentary evidence as follows: A will dated 1748 made by Caleb Ball of Hanover, New Jersey, "Gentleman," names his fourteen children and "Abigail Johnson" is one of his nine daughters. A deed dated Feb. 19, 1705, gives the name of Sarah Thompson as Caleb Ball's wife. In 1704 Caleb Ball returnes his homestead to his father "Edward Ball," and the same year "Edward Ball" conveys "to his son Caleb Ball" 50 acres of land "on the mountain."...
