David Ballard of Kershaw County, South Carolina (c. 1746-c. 1832).

A researcher named Robert Hewgley posted the genealogy below to Rootsweb’s Ballard-L Archive on 1 January 2003  He provided no references, so we are assuming the research is sound and will use it to guide our own research, so we are using this as a placeholder while we research this particular line.  Research in Pickens County, Alabama, where some of these descendants settled, is difficult because of catastrophic record losses in 1864 and 1876.

This lists the descendants of David Ballard, a son of John Ballard of Albemarle County, Virginia (c, 1719-1780).
