      ANN BALL (POPE) AND COL. THOMAS DAMERON
      I have not been able to find any record of Ann Ball, the widow of John Pope,
      who married Col. Thomas Dameron as his third wife, and had a son George, who
      inherited the estate, and a daughter Ann who married in 1764, Thomas Waddy, "a
      second cousin." One record says Ann Ball( Pope) Dameron also had a youngest
      son Thomas, but I am sure this is an error. Anne Ball Pope Damoron died 1764.
      Her husband, Thomas Dameron, was the son of George Dameron b. about 1640, who
      was the son of Lawrence Dameron, the first one of the family in Northumberland
      County. The son of Ann Ball (Pope) Dameron, George, inherited the Dameron
      estate at Guarding Point, married Mary Ann Jones about 1762-3 and their descenda
      nts continued to live on the old estate in Wicomico until it was acquired in 1849
      by John Hopkins Harding. Heck does not mention an Ann Ball who married a Pope
      or Dameron. He has Anne Ball b. 1686 m. Col. Edwin Conway, she being No. 13
      in his genealogy of the Ball family, dau. of Joseph Ball and i&izabeth Romney.
      He also has the daughter of Major James Ball No. 3 and Elizabeth Howson, No. 11:
      "Anne b. 1700 m, Downman." Her father, James, b. 1673, was son of William
      Ball and his second wife, "Hayden is of the opinion that he married first a
      daughter of James Williamson, of Rappahannock County. Her name appears to be
      either Margaret or Mary, Other members of the Ball family insisted that he
      married a Miss Harris, but she was likely to have been a second wife as Hayden
      believes. Both wives died prior to 1675* when he married Margaret Downman."
      See p. 35 of Heck

      There is a good deal of confusion about the Sarah Ball who married Christopher
      Dameron and the Ann Ball who married Col. Thomas Dameron and had a son George,
      vestryman at Wicomico. I believe there were two sisters, Ann and Sarah, though
      Ann is not listed in the genealogies and Sarah is given as marrying Dameron

      To cousin George Dameron-two hundred acres of land lying in Orange County in St. Marks Parish, to him and his lawfully begotten heirs of his body and for want of such heirs to my cousin Samuel Smith and his heirs.
      To Aunt Ann Dameron and her heirs-negro woman called Moll.
      Cousin George Dameron and Mr. Argail Taylor, executors.
