Notes

Joseph Ball became guardian of Sydney Mottrom, son of Spencer Mottrom, 1671-1698?, and younger brother of the wife, Mary, of Joseph's son, Spencer Ball.

Joseph's uncle, Joseph Ball, 1649-1711, son of William Ball, had a daughter Mary with his second wife. This daughter, Mary Ball, 1708-1789, was President George Washington's mother.

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/spencer/messages/6437.html

The Joseph Ball who married Mary Spencer was the older Joseph's nephew. The young Joseph's grandfather, Col. Wm. Ball and Mary Spencer's father, Col. Nicholas Spencer were quite good friends. For a long time I confused the two Joseph's until last summer when I visited Northumberland Co., Virginia. The records show that between the Washington's and the descendants of Joseph Ball & Mary Spencer there was a second cousin relationship. Hope this helps
