Surnames: Ball, Lee, Payne, Morris
I am looking for information on the Ball Family which included Sarah Morris-Payne-Ball-Lee, who was last married to John Lee. Sarah was married three times with Robert Wesley Ball. Robert Wesley was married first to a Mary Wiggins and had several children by Mary Wiggins-Ball, who were Mamie Ball-Rhoades, Frederick Ball, Edward Ball and a Maryian Ball. And amongst Sarah's children with Robert Wesley Ball was Daniel Wayland Ball, Louie Ball, Hazel Ball-Sinclair. And Daniel Ball had several children, one was: Doris Elizabeth Ball who married a Wendell Ball whose father was William Ryland Ball Jr from Nuttsville, Lancaster, Virginia, and another child of Robert Wesley Ball and Sarah Morris-Ball was Robert Daniel Ball. There are others not mentioned. Robert Wesley Ball father's name was Robert Ball who was married to a Ellen Saunders or Ellen Sanders. Any help would be appreciated.

I found out that Sarah's maiden name was Morris. Sarah's birth is estimated around 1891, and John Lee's birthday is estimated around 1890. So Sarah's marriages went like this
Sarah Morris (maiden name), Sarah Payne, Sarah Ball and finally Sarah Lee.

I have yet to come across this set of Balls while researching my tree, but I believe that there is a connection. I have to get more information of the grandparents or great grandparents.

Surnames: Ball, Crowley
My grandfather was Alonzo (Lonnie) Ball Crowley. I have often wondered where that name came from as it is unique within our Crowley line. These Crowley's descend from Jeffrey of Virginia, went south to Georgia then across MS and AL to TX and ultimately to SW Colorado and NW New Mexico. I think the Crowley's were neighbors with some Ball's in MS or AL but haven't had the time yet to follow that thread. At any rate that may be where the relationship came from. It is weird to encounter the same name "Alonzo (Lonnie) Ball ..." isn't it?
