Hi, Not sure if you are interested but James Ball was my Great Great grandfather. I am curious about the statement of correspondence with Ann Eliza. If you have this I would like a copy of what ever you have if I may.
I know this is a long time since you posted you message. I remember my grandmother mentioning the Foxwell's but not sure what. I think maybe in 1939 when they took a trip to Iowa they visited a Foxwell family.
