I am looking for male Ball descendants of Farling and John Ball who lived in Loudoun Co, Virginia in the late 1700's, John dying in 1768 and Farling in 1805. Have any taken a DNA test?
I descend from Farling Ball with lines that remained in Loudoun. In comparing DNA tests with a Ball descendant of Benjamin Franklin Ball, b. 1806 in Loudoun, d. 1889 in Arkansas, a supposed descendant of Farling, there is no possible way we are related. I am a near perfect match in 67 markers with a descendant of John Ball, the proven brother of Farling Ball.
My hope is that other possible descendants of Farling and John Ball will consider taking DNA tests for additional comparison.
