I just read your post to the rootsweb Burke County page.
"William David Ballew (1789 - 1887?) married Robin Esther Connelly (1797
- 187?) 2 May 1817 in Burke Co, NC.... William David's father, William
Ballew (1749 - 183?) married Elizabeth Connelly (c. 1750 - ?) in 1773 in
Burke Co, NC".
For your line commonly known as the David (Dave) Ballew b. 1789 (as
listed in the April 1998 Ballew Family Journal), it looks like you have
found some new information.
My line is John Ballew b. 1803 and Elizabeth ? b. 1805, also from Burke
County, NC. Elizabeth is also burried at Old Salem #2 Church Cemetery
in the Hot House area. The information I have leads me to believe John
and David were brothers. What is the source for your new information
giving David and Ester's full names and the names of David's parents?
Also, have you run across anything that would tend to confirm or deny
John and David being brothers?
Look foreward to hearing from you.
