Ballew family of Burke County

I am searching for the family of John Ballew, b. 1824 Burke County NC. He left Burke County in 1844 in search of the man who killed his brother. He married Gertrude Parsons from New York and settled in Navarro County Texas. He was a professor of mathematics and ancient languages at McKenzie College. He was a lineal descendent of Leonard Ballew of Virginia who married Esther Meredith of Ireland,(this from family documents and published histories of Texas). I am unable to make the connection from John back to Leonard. Please contact me if you have any information on any of these persons.
