Does anyone know the names of the children of Philip Ballard. I believe that he is the father of Delpha Ballard who married Robert Cummins in 1795 in Albemarle? Also her relationship to William Ballard who moved to Monroe County WV in 1793 and was the progenitor of a large line of WV Ballards.

Carol – Philip Ballard is listed with six white souls on the first census of the United States, 1785, in Albemarle County, Virginia and I have come across a few land records for him. Others have credited with a number of Ballard children in Albemarle County, although I have not researched these. One was said to be Philadelphia “Delphia” Ballard who married Robert Cummings. I have no verification for this, so perhaps someone will post here a clue. I am interested in what you have about Delpha Ballard. Do you have any sources for information on her and her husband? As to William Ballard in West Virginia, I know nothing.
