      194. John Ballinger, born 1749 in Monocacy, Frederick County, Maryland; died Unknown. He was the son of 388. Henry Ballinger and 389. Hannah Wright. He married 195. Catherine Stuart.

      195. Catherine Stuart, died Unknown. She was the daughter of 390. Robert Stuart and 391. Martha Richardson.

Notes for John Ballinger:

A John Ballinger was in the North Carolina militia from Newbern District in the Am. Rev.

Genforum-
This John Ballinger is the son of Henry Ballinger/Hannah Wright. Apparently Reeves in Three Centuries of Ballingers in America reports that he married a Nancy Eastham and moved to Garrard Co., Kentucky. Does anyone have proof of this? I believe that he married Katherine Stewart/Stuart (Stuart family documentation seems to confirm this) and was the father of a Henry, John, Hannah (m. Joseph Coffin) and Rebecca (m. Joseph Aydelott) (there may be more children). There is a John Ballinger in the 1790 census in Guilford Co., NC with 2 males 16+, 4 males under 16 and 6 females. 1800 and 1810 censuses show a John Ballinger age 45+ in Guilford Co. It is known that his father Henry went to North Carolina in 1751 and settled in the Guilford Co. area.

Any help with this would be appreciated.
