He and his brother Henry, Jr. both married daughters of James and Mary [Bowater] Wright. The Ballingers moved from near Salem in West Jersey to settle in the Monocacy Valley in present-day Frederick Co., Maryland in 1725 and were prominent in the affairs of the Friends' meeting in that community. In 1726, the eight year old New Garden Monthly Meeting at Chester, Pennsylvania gave permission to those Quaker families settled along the Monocacy River to meet at Josiah Ballinger's home. The Meeting was to be called "Monoquesey." The local monthly meeting was held at Josiah's home until a piece of land was purchased for the construction of the Cold Spring meeting-house, which was completed in 1736. [p.24, 54] Josiah [the first Quaker settler] purchased a tract of land on the Monocacy River northeast of present-day Buckeystown, that he had surveyed on 4 November 1725. The tract was called "Josiah."
Josiah and Mary Ballinger, along with children Josiah Jr., Sarah, and James, and James and Mary Wright joined the Quaker migration to Virginia sometime between 1736 and 1739. Henry Ballinger remained behind in Maryland.

According to court records, in 1732, Henry Ballinger was paid a bounty for the heads of three wolves and was appointed an Overseer of Roads in 1735, 1742, 1743, and 1747. In March 1749 he contracted with the court to keep a ferry over the middle ford of the Monocacy River [where State Road 28 now crosses the river.] Henry's tract was north of Josiah's and straddled a rather sizable creek which empties into the Monocacy midway between present-day Frederick and Buckeystown. Henry built a mill
  about a quarter mile from the mouth of the creek. The mill was the first recorded in Frederick County. [The creek is now called Ballinger's Creek.] Henry had leased the land from its owner John Radford from 1724 until he purchased it on 1 May 1748. He also acquired an adjoining parcel called "Mill Lot" in 1743.
Josiah was associated with Alexander Ross and his efforts to settle the Shenandoah Valley. About 1735, Josiah settled in the Shenandoah and acquired a 500 acre tract on Apple Pie Ridge, north of Winchester [then Fredrickstown.] He also acquired other tracts of land. Josiah Ballinger and James Wright, Sr. were instrumental in establishing the Hopewell Monthly Meeting.

In his will, written 4 November 1748 and probated 7 December 1748, Josiah left the following: To his son James [upon coming of age], 100 acres adjoining the land of Thomas Babb being part of his home plantation. To father-in-law James Wright, Sr., half of his plantation. To his eldest son Josiah, the remainder of his plantation with the house, upon the decease of his wife. A bequest to his daughter Sarah. Wife Mary was named executrix.

Josiah was about 10 years older than his wife and died at a relatively early age. He was survived by his wife, Mary.
  On 3 May 1755, Col. Dunbar commanding the 48th Regiment [Braddock's Army] camped at the "Widow Ballinger's."  Sir Peter Halkett's 44th Regiment also camped at the Ballinger homestead on 8 June 1755 and the column's nurse spoke well of the entertainment and care given her during a visit with Mrs. Ballinger. On 6 August survivors of Braddock's army stopped at the Ballinger homestead and it was recorded that "the people of the House is two old maids Quakers."
On 9 April 1798, Mary Ballinger, Jacob and Patience Smith sold to Matthew Helm for 2090 pounds 209 acres of the 500 acre tract granted Josiah Ballinger in 1735. The tract was described as "lying on both sides of Sir John's Road [State Road 672.]
