Recently, I submitted Frances Newball, the genesis of the Newbill family to First Families of America and was approved.
First Families of America is open to anyone who can prove direct line of descent to anyone who lived in America for 2 years between 1607 thru 1675.
Frances Newball was "transported" from England to York Virginia on 10 December 1651 by Joseph Croshaw. THis documentation can be found in Nell Marion Nugent's book, "Pioneers and Cavaliers" Vol 1 1623 -1666.
Anyone interested in joining the society can find the website by searching "First Families of America."
Since Frances Newball was just accepted in Dec 02 it make take a while for him to be identified on the Ancestor Roll of Honor at the website.
To join, all you have to do is prove your lineage to Frances Newball.
