The Ball Family were large land owners and
high up in the
Government. The Balls came to America in 1635 and settled throughout the east coast . One branch
settled in Virginia.
Our ancestors settled first in Virginia, and then after the Revolutionary War migrated down the
coast to Georgia and were the first settlers in Washington, Georgia.
Our Dr. Doric Ball, moved to New Orleans, Louisiana. Many of our family’s large
plantations were destroyed during the War Between the States, and the old South with the big land
and slaves were forever gone. After the
people moved West to get away from the poverty in the South to get a new start.
