Deceased was a daughter of Peter Ball, and belonged to one of the several families who emigrated from Block Island and helped to settle the township of Exeter in its Pioneer days. They were a sturdy, God-fearing race, and from them have descended some of our most prominent and respectable citizens. The deceased possessed strong traits of character, and was a worthy scion of the parent tree. Since the death of her husband she has resided with Mrs. Helen Coleman, of this village, where her declining years were made as pleasant and peaceful as possible."4
