I have to start with the Balls because I know'more about them.After her mother,Margaret Willis Ball died, my Grandmother, Hallah May Ball, was raised by Anne Cotnam. I do not know how this arrangement came about. She later married my grandfather,William Alfred Cotnam, son of Anne (Ann?)and John Cotnam. Ann and John Cotnam had three sons, William Alfred, Perry, and Eddie (Eddie died at age 12) and one daughter, Ella. Perry had two daughters Mildred and Louise,neither girl married.
