I am trying to help a friend find information about her family.She is the gr. gr. grandaughter of Charity Ridgeway b. abt 1801, Maryland.She married John W. Ball also of Maryland and they had five children; Clegget C. Ball, Rebecca Almira Ball, Johnathon (sp) Ball, Basil R. Ball, and Martin Ball.I found them on the following census records; 1850 Guernsey Co., Ohio, Londonderry twp and 1860 Mahaska Co., Iowa, Harrison pg 168. We think that she is the daughter of Basil Ridgeway and Amine Casteel because of the names. (They have a grandson named Clegget Castile Beard.) Does anyone know anything about this family that would help us in finding more about their ancestors?We are really stuck.
