Benjamin Miller Ball1,2

M, #5498, b. circa 1780, d. 14 August 1868
     Benjamin Miller Ball was born circa 1780 at Westborough, Worcester Co., MA; As part of his father's probate, on 6 Jul 1795 Benjamin Ball, listed as age 15, nominated to a Justice of the Peace that his choice of guardian was Rufus Forbush of Westborough MA.3 He was the son of Benjamin Ball and Lucy Belknap.1 Benjamin Miller Ball was baptized on 10 October 1784 at Westborough, Worcester Co., MA; Comment by DGB: The court documents after the death of her father show that Benjamin was born c1780 and the 1850 census for his sister Lucy suggests she was born c1782, so it is likely that the compiled Westborough vital records shows their baptism date and not their birth date. End of comment.4 He married Daphna Pratt, daughter of Jeremiah Pratt and Miriam Partridge, circa 1808.5 Benjamin Miller Ball died on 14 August 1868 at DuPage Co., IL.5 He was buried at Naperville Cemetery, Naperville, DuPage Co., IL.2

Lucy Ball1

F, #5499, b. say 1782
     Lucy Ball was born say 1782 at Westborough, Worcester Co., MA. She was the daughter of Benjamin Ball and Lucy Belknap.1 Lucy Ball was baptized on 10 October 1784 at Westborough, Worcester Co., MA; Comment by DGB: The court documents after the death of her father show that her brother Benjamin was born c1780 and that suggests shat Lucy may have been born c1782, so it is likely that the compiled Westborough vital records shows their baptism date and not their birth date. End of comment.2 She married Joseph Bond, son of Joseph Bond and Hepzibah Pratt, on 24 November 1804 at Westborough, Worcester Co., MA.3
     Comment by DGB: I have seen a theory that this couple soon moved to New York state, but have not been able to confirm that. In 1800 there were Joseph Bond families at Ovid, Seneca Co. NY, Princetown, Schenectady Co. NY, and Newburgh, Orange Co. NY, as well as at Georgia, Franklin Co. VT and Corinth, Orange Co. VT. End of comment.
