      A Geanealogy of the Glassell Family , Page 56
      There is no record of Col. Ball's marriages among the marriage bonds of Lanc'r County, nor do I find any mention of the name of the first wife in the county or church books. The Letter Book of Joseph Ball, 19, son of Col. Joseph Ball by his first wife, and a lawyer of London, covering the seventeen years from 1743 to 1760, with many other papers, is still preserved in the hands of his descendant, Miss Downman, of Washington. These papers show that he had given much attention to the subject of his ancestry while in London. Most of the early Ball wills given in these pages are from copies obtained by him and his son-in-law, Rawleigh Downman. No mention of the maiden name of his mother occurs in these papers. But there is among his descendants a tradition that Joseph Ball's first wife was named Elizabeth Romney or Rumney. A tradition so trusted that the name Romney occurs frequently in this line in memory of his first wife. It is to the kindness of her gt. gt. gt. gr. dau., Miss J! ulia Romney Downman, 337, that I owe the privilege of examining the papers of Joseph Ball, 19.
