    "… circumstantial evidence does not constitute proof that Grace Ballard was born Grace Lovejoy, the evidence does suggest that there is a reasonable likelihood that she was. Other claims regarding Grace Ballard's origins have been published, but no evidence has been found to date to support those claims. … Ballard-Ballord Bits, typescript (1978), at NEHGS, 28, says she was Grace Berwick, daughter of Thomas and Ann (_____) Berwick of Bristol, England, providing no evidence. This work is cited in Barbara Holden, 'Ballard Families,' The Essex Genealogist 16 (1996):65-67 at 67."
