You are correct - this is the same person. General William Lenoir's wife is normally shown as Ann Ballard, Nancy was her nickname which was common. The General always refered to her as Ann however. Nancy was born 7-11-1751 in Halifax County, NC, d. 10-9-1833 at Fort Defiance, NC. Her parents were William Sorrell Ballard 1715-1774, b. Mecklenburg Co., Va., married Elizabeth Clopton 1715-1775, b. New Kent, Va. William's parents were John Ballard 1693-9/16/1745 b. York, Va. and Elizabeth Bland 1697-1751. John's parents were Thomas Ballard 1655-1711 and Katherine Hubbard 1660-1706. Thomas' parents were Thomas Ballard 1630-1685 and Anne Thomas 1633-1675. Thomas' parents were William Ballard 1603-1689, b. Southwell, Nottinghamshire, England and Elizabeth Lee 1608-1687. Much of this information has been taken from General William Lenoir's "Book of Forms" which he maintained listing families, etc which is in my possession.
