* The Catherine (Fagan) Ball Family Home Page from Colver, PA*

Updated October 2, 2001


I am looking for members of the Catherine Ball Family that arrived in Philadelphia from Dublin County, Ireland in 1854. They lived in Adams County, Pennsylvania until the turn of the century and then moved to Cambria County, Pennsylvania. They settled and lived in Colver, Pennsylvania. Please email me if you have any information or you would like some information that I have. Thanks.
