I suppose you aren't talking about the James Ballenger listed above??While you are looking check and see if you can find out about the story of Ballengers leasing land from George Washington! :-) The names of some Ballengers are indexed in Washington's papers.
These are some websites I found. (I think I have more but can't find them right now.) Try searching on google....you might be surprised :-)
