"I believe that mitha is probably mis-translation of Mirha dr. Parker's 2nd wife. His first wife I decided from the following. Colonial Wills of Henrico County 1654-1737 by Benjamin Wiesinger John Ballard to Richard Parker my estate after debts are paid. To Goddaughter Sarah Perkin's d/o Nicholas, a cow-calf. To Goddaughter, jane Whitley, d/o william Whitley, a cow-calf. richard Parker sale executer Wit. James Morris, Roberet Sharp, Wm. Pierce. Recorded Feb. 1, 1691' I can think of no other reason for John Ballard to leave estate to Richard Parker. If anyone can find a better reason etc let me know."
