'Early Settlers of Lee Co., VA', p. 711, gives the following quote about the history of the Ball family in Virginia, but does not connect them with Richard or any of his descendents: 'The first ancestor of the well-known Ball family of VA was Colonel William Ball, who was born about 1615, died Nov. 1680, at Millenbeck, Lancaster Co., VA. He came with his family in 1650, and settled at the north of Corotonian river in Lancaster Co., VA. 'One of his sons later known as Colonel Joseph Ball, as married three times, and by his third marriage about 1675, with Margaret, daughter of Rawleigh Downman, had Joseph, later Captain Joseph Ball, b. 1680, d. 1721. He married Mary Spencer, daughter of General George Washington. Their eldest son was Spencer Mottrom Ball. 'No relationship has been found or established between the above Ball family and the Balls that migrated to Southwestern VA, but it is likely that all the Virginia Balls descent from the original stock of the prominent Ball Family of Great Britain.'
