Here between 1766 and 1908 were buried members of the Ball and Carlin families. In 1742 John Ball was granted 166 acres in this area and in 1748 his brother Moses Ball was granted 91 adjoining acres, now the site of Doctor's Hospital. They were cousins of George Washington who acquired an adjoining tract along Four Mile Run in 1785. After John Ball's death in 1766, his estate was sold to William Carlin who was one of Washington's tailors. Fragments of the original Ball-Carlin log house are within the walls of the house at 5620 3rd Street South. About 1800 Carlin built a log house that still stands at 5512 North Carlin Springs Road. In present Glencarlyn Park his descendants operated "Carlin Springs", a popular resort during 1872-1884.
