  1. Henry Ball Says:

    Do you have any information on a John Ball of Wiltshire who eventually settled in Watertown, Ma. and what ship he sailed on? I understand that he possibly came from Trowbridge, Wiltshire in 1630. Thank You

  2. Janet Says:

    At the latest count there are now 333 people on this list of ancestors who immigrated to North America. I’ve been able to add names to the list as well as snippets of information about many of them. I am finding this genealogical research so fascinating.
