Title: John Ballam, Drumshambo 1828
Post by: Aynn on Friday 11 March 16 03:01 GMT (UK)
Looking for info on my ancestor John  Ballam, He was said to have been in Drumshambo, Co Leitrim at approximately 1828 age 17 where  he was taught the Methodist Ministry from Messr John Laird and Mark Crawford, from here he went to Ballyfarnon Co. Roscommon where he Started a business and married Anne Jane Hawksby of Sligo the  Parish is Emlaghfad.   Both John Ballam and Anne Jane's Father Jackson were instrumental in helping build a Methodist Church in Ballyfarnon. I  am trying to find where he was born and who is parents were so I can continue in my search
Thank you
Aynn

The earliest reference to any John Ballam in Leitrim that I could find is in the Tithe Applotments for  Cloone Civil Parish 1836    http://www.connorsgenealogy.com/Leitrim/ClooneCPTithes-A.htm
Not much help I'm afraid!
