Welcome to the Ball Family History pages of the Simmons & Related Families Histories website.
My Ball Family line begins with my Great Grandmother Elizabeth (Susan) A. Ball b. 1860 in Canada who married Samuel S. Becket b. 1859 in Canada.
Elizabeth's parents are William N. Ball b. 1830 in Niagara, Ontario, Canada and Mary ? b. 1832 in Canada. Ancestors of William Ball faught in the American Revolution
in New York State and also in Canada. The story behind this is still developing and is very interesting. Watch the 'Featured Articles' for this story. The Ball family
line has been tracked back to my 9th Great Grandfather Hans Ball b. abt 1590 probably in Germany.
Other Ball related lines include Beckett, Klump, Robinson and others. Your help is needed to collect and publish more details of these families. Please join me in the search for missing links, photos, stories and other details to create a more complete picture of our common ancestors. Please browse all information contained in this website and contact me via 'Contact US' or 'Suggest' links located throughout this website.
Thank you for your interest and participation in the Ball Family History!
