John Ballam of Ballyfarnon Co.Roscommon
« on: Wednesday 27 January 16 06:05 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information on my ancestor John Ballam B:1811 not sure of where he was born but do know that he and his wife Anne Jane Hawksby were in Ballyfarnon. He was a Methodist Layperson and built a church which is now a tire store? If any one has any info I would appreciate it.
Thank you

Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.

There's a Methodist Ballam family here who are probably connected-
