Long believed to be a relative of George Washington through his mother, Mary Ball Washington's family, DNA evidence from descendants of Zopher's sons Caleb and Isaiah has disproved this theory and strongly indicates that he is related to Edward Ball, one of the founders and first settlers of Newark, New Jersey. At the present time, it is not known where Zopher was born or precisely how he is related to Edward Ball.
